Billie E.

Book Now
Private Knitting Teacher

Billie began knitting at age 4. Over the decades she has knit everything from slippers, afghans, jackets, sweaters, baby clothes to dishtowels. She is a retired educational consultant who worked with parents and teachers to bring learning toys to children in their most formative years. She understands how life in our fast-paced world can lead one to feel the need to multi-task. Knitting allows you to do just that! You can have conversations or watch a film on Netflix while turning a piece of yarn into something useful, one stitch at a time. But it's also very relaxing, once you're up to speed. Billie is a patient teacher who will ensure that you'll be knitting in no time.

In your first class you'll learn how to cast on, and do the knit and purl stitches.
If time permits, you'll also learn how to bind off. Billie can help you select patterns to make things that will be at the right skill level for you.

I love knitting, enjoying making a huge variety of items using many different techniques. I knit using the English style, having grown up in Cheshire, England, but also knit using the Continental style of knitting too. I have been teaching knitting in groups and on a one to one basis for a few years. My students have ranged in age from 8 years old to 80 years old.
If you need help with a specific project, learning a new technique or just starting out as a beginner knitter, please get in touch.

I think Jane will be able to help me through a gauge related knitting weak area I’ve had for years. I’m excited to get to the next lessons. She’s very knowledgeable and had at her fingertips anything we needed to keep digging for answers and examples. Couldn’t have asked for a better suited match for me.

I offer patient guidance and encouragement. I see knitting as a process of growth and development- moving forward at a pace that the student is comfortable as we cultivate confidence and technique.

I believe knitting is a wonderful skill and a great, relaxing way to pass the time. Whether you are a beginner or a past knitter looking to review the basics, I would love to help! I do my best to adapt my teaching style to the student so that there is as little frustration as possible. Above all, I want my students to enjoy learning and give them a solid base to advance their skills.
I teach a few basic stitches and techniques such as:
- regular knit stitch
- purl stitch
- casting on
- casting off
- stockinette
- rib stitch

Almost any size needles and yarn should be fine.
I also recommend bamboo or wooden knitting needles (rather than metal) for first-time beginners but not a requirement. We will work with what you have. Most importantly, I hope you enjoy learning and develop an appreciation for the art of knitting. :)

"I have been struggling over a sweater pattern that I purchased. Numerous Youtube videos didn't help. Several communications with the person who wrote the pattern didn't help. The pattern maker was super nice, but just could not communicate how to execute her instructions (teaching is a skill). The pattern stressed me out, and my beautiful yarn was going to waste. The sweater is super cute, so I decided to get help. Jane H. was amazing! Aside from being a very skilled knitter, she is an excellent teacher. She is personable and goes beyond the pattern to tell you why a stitch is being done the way it is, so that you know what it's supposed to look like. She truly gives you a knitting lesson. Online was great because I could see her hands up close, letting me see precisely how a stitch is done as she explained it. She taught me everything I need to know to knit this pattern and I am so thrilled! I can now actually knit this sweater. Thank you Jane. You're the best."
