I am learning how to sew home decor items and upholstery"
Patty is a natural teacher who intuitively knows to answer questions I did not know I had. She not only shows you "how" to do each technique, she explains "why", so you not only remember the "how", but you get a clearer understanding of what is happening with your knitting to create each stitch. By understanding the anatomy of each stitch and how they all work together, you can easily fix errors and let your creativity run wild, because you are in control! As she teaches you each technique, she will also amaze you with tips from her "bag of tricks", almost magical little ways to do things like get rid of that loose stitch at the edge or tighten up that cable stitch next to your purls. For every technique and tip, she will show you how using both picking and throwing!
Patty has a fantastic sense of humor and moves along at an easy to follow pace, so you will never get lost and never get bored!
Three years later, I am a far more skilled knitter! Cabling and colorwork are now my passions and I am not intimidated by even the most intricate cabled to Fair Isle design, thanks to what I have learned in Patty's Craftsy, Interweave and Annie's online classes! I refer back to them a lot and I giggle out loud, again, to her jokes and often pick up something I missed in previous viewings!
I have enrolled in ALL of Patty's online classes since that first one and I will enroll in every new class she does, because I learn SO much from every single class, every single lesson. No teacher is as informative or enjoyable as Patty Lyons!
If you are thinking about taking a class from Patty, whether in person or online, DO IT! If you only ever take a class from one knitting instructor, Patty Lyons is, hands down, the best choice!"
And they're not alone!
