I have a LOT of patience! All you need is the desire to learn to knit. If you never have knitted before, I will get you knitting. If you want to learn, but believe you can’t learn because someone told you can’t learn to knit, I will prove that you can knit. If you have knitted a long time ago, but forgot all of it or most of it, I will bring it back to you. If you already know the basics of knitting, but don’t know how to get beyond the simple knitted squares and rectangles, I can get you to the next level. If you know knitting basics, but gave up because you make a lot of mistakes, I will show you how to fix mistakes, so that mistakes don’t become traumatic. If you know the basics, but want to learn a different technique such as color work, cables, lace, or more, I can teach you. Do you have trouble reading patterns or charts, I can take the mystery out of them.

Because of COVID-19, I mostly teach online for now. If you are vaccinated, I will consider teaching in person within 6 ...

I believe that if you have the desire, then you can learn. The speed in which you learn may be different than the next person, but, that is o

Amy was wonderful! It takes me forever to figure out new stitches or new techniques, and Amy had incredible patience, showing me multiple times how to do something and waiting while I made the attempts.

Clear, easy instruction and lots of patience. I love to teach others something new and bring them to a place of refreshing rest as they learn to create new and wonderful things. Adult Beginners and Intermediate levels are welcome. I will teach the basics for beginners - Cast on/off, knit/purl stitches, increasing/decreasing and we will finish with a project. Intermediates usually need help getting started again, finishing a project or help with a pattern, I will also teach you new stitch patterns to have fun with.

About Melisa

I love to teach and I am very patient. I first learned to knit as a 21 yr old in Norway over 35 years ago. Knitting is a great way to relax, it is repetitious so it is great for those with anxiety and other problems related to stress or focusing. I have been teaching children and adults for over 1

Melinda
Dawn is an excellent sewing instructor. She is working with my 14-year-old, who is a beginner at sewing. Dawn tailors the lessons to my child's level, ability, and interests. Dawn is very thorough, clear, and knowledgeable. I had doubts about my child learning to sew from online lessons, but it's been no problem--even though I can't help because I have very limited skills when it comes to sewing machines. Dawn has helped my child trouble-shoot when the machine's foot fell off, saving me the hassle and expense of taking the machine to a repair shop. Yeah! My child is excited about sewing and looks forward to each lesson.
Andrew
Knitting was brand new to me and I have to say Dawn was very patient with me which I appreciate.
Furthermore, Dawn used a variety of ways of teaching. She is the best!
Alicia
Dawn is a superb teacher! I was an educator or 30 years and it is not often I find someone who can make something so new and challenging seem so easy and fun. I am so pleased to see that this old art form is being kept alive!
