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 only teach online for now. I use Zoom for my teaching platform only. Please get familiar with ...

Amazing! I was stuck at the beginning of a cardigan pattern, she jumped in and got me going again. Very kind and helpful. Loved it!

I have to update my review now that I've had a bunch of lessons with Amy. People who can do something well and also teach well are rare and Amy is one of those. Before I started with her, I had been doing crochet using YouTube and had taken a couple of local classes. I was pulling things out and starting over frequently because i'd realize i didn't understand/had totally missed something, which was getting frustrating. Even in the live classes the teachers were nice and skilled but they didn't take the time to make sure we understood certain fundamental facts about crochet and what we were doing, focusing more on just getting it done. Amy makes a point of expressing the basic things one needs to know about the stitches we are doing, as much as helping me get the final result.

I looked up online lessons because the quarantine had started and I had purchased a sweater pattern that I really wanted to make, and thought i should be able to accomplish. Many people on Ravelry had complained about the pattern's shortcomings -- some had given up on it, though the people that did complete it, had great results - over 95 people posted pictures of their results, though some aren't quite like the advertised picture. I really wanted to make that sweater though, so I thought it was time to get some real lessons, and found Amy. The way she talked me through the pattern and other patterns, I totally got how to look at patterns and think about them. She lets you know her thought process so you can think it through yourself. Now, when i rip something out to do something over, it's not because i don't know what i'm doing so much as i now know what i'm trying to accomplish. The sweater is almost done and btw, looks just like the picture!! I've realized that it's a great idea to tell Amy whatever i'm thinking and she will give the best advice. Oh, and from the first lesson, she got me getting straight edges easily (now, it makes so much sense but at the time it seemed like a fluke whenever i had a straight edge!)

Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to complete a headband or scarf and as time goes on you'll be able to knit a hat in the round. I specialize in working with heavy weight yards and creating a funky, wildly textured projects. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Bonnie is a great resource for knitting help! She's knowledgeable and patient. We did have a few tech issues, but she gave me extra time, which was above and beyond, since the issues mostly were from my end. I do have to say though, that a zoom lesson doesn't compare to being together in person, but it's still a good option when that isn't available.
Christine
Bonnie is very nice and made me feel comfortable on my first lesson with her. So glad I came across these private lessons online!

Elizabeth is the most talented, knowledgeable, upbeat instructor for knitting and crochet that you will find. From helping beginners learn the basics to coaching a seasoned knitter through a specific technical problem on their project, Elizabeth can do it all. And her glowing personality will put a smile on your face at the same time. If you want to learn to knit or crochet or improve your skill level, give Elizabeth a try.
Jessica Herrera
She would have been a good teacher if it wasn't for the no-shows without notice. She was pleasant and knowledgeable about crochet. I tried to be understanding about the constant schedule changes, but I usually had to contact her first to see why she wasn't at the lesson. I should have had three classes leftover that was part of the package that I ordered, but I canceled them instead. I will look for another option to learn crochet. If you have a free schedule, perhaps she will work for you, but I would think twice about it if you have to stick to a specific time. I usually don't write bad reviews, but I don't want you to feel blindsided.
Jessica Herrera
She's fun and nice.

Go at your own pace and have fun are my knitting mottos! I teach continental style knitting and have been teaching beginners to knit for over 5 years. Together we'll experience the excitement that comes when you cast on something new, learn a new stich, or finish a favorite project.

I'm can start with the basics (cast on, knit stitch, purl stitch) or jump straight into helping on a project you have planned (or started and got stuck on? don't worry - it happens to all of us!). There is no limit to the kind or number of projects we can do. I have plenty of project ideas and am always happy to help with your ideas, too.
