I know the basics of knitting, and can teach how to work with simple patterns for hats, scarves, blankets. . .and could also teach beginner or intermediate macrame'. I'm listing it here within the closest available category. I've made macrame' friendship bracelets, necklaces, bracelets, belts, purses and wall hangings.

About Karen
I have a BA in Psychology, and an MA in Parapsychology. I studied Architecture for 3 years, and Music Education for two years. I was a National Merit Semifinalist in High School for good SAT scores, and in the Honors Society in High School and College. I play piano, percussion, flute, cello, guitar, bass, cornet and glockenspiel, and teach music lessons. I enjoy playing duets with my students, sharing the fun of making music with them. I do macrame', draw and paint, and am certified as a Reiki Master. I always loved school, and enjoy helping other people to learn. My Dad is my role model, since he was a calm, patient tutor for me - I try to live up to his example in my own teaching work.
I like to work with my students in a learning partnership, letting them work at their own pace with my encouragement and support.
I love to teach, and
can help you love to learn!

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are usually 30 or 60 minutes, once a week.

My daughter 7yrs took lessons from Karen for 8 months. She was so patient and kind. My girl loved her and her teaching style.
I would have given 5 stars if she had got a real piano, not an electronic one.

With the knitting lessons, we'll start out learning how to prepare your piece, read basic patterns, learn how to cast on and off. We'll go through the basic stitches (knit and purl), and how to use them to make a scarf.

About Brianna
Hi, I'm Bri! I'm a graduate of North Central College with a BA in Music (Emphasis in Composition and Percussion) and a minor in History. I absolutely love music, every single aspect of it. I love to make music a part of everybody's lives who want and need it. I want to help you with your musical needs. I have been playing percussion for 19 years, singing for 25, and playing piano for 20 years. I was a member of a recording and performing Chicago band, Oblio and Arrow, where I provided backing vocals and helped with the song arrangements. I am currently a member of Trip City Lights, an LA local funk/soul band, where I provide lead and backing vocals. I also record vocals for different artists hooks, jingles, choruses, and songs (covers and originals). I have also composed/arranged various pieces for ensembles, bands, vocal groups, choirs,
plays, musicals, commercials, etc. I've worked with folks locally in LA, and all over the world. I love what I do!

History has always fascinated me. The way our world has developed and changed and continues to evolve is amazing. Everything can be tied back to the past, and I feel it's important to take a look back, put yourself in that time, and really study how things were to help understand why things are the way they are now.

Crocheting and knitting are a couple of good habits/hobbies I picked up about 10 years ago. I sell scarves online and I'm always working on some sort of project. I will have you knitting and pearling with the best of them!

Music, history, crochet, and knitting....I'm your girl!

About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

Knitting is a wonderful skill! From the practical -- such as scarves, sweaters, or socks -- to the artistic, learning to knit gives you a hobby that reduces stress, gives the ability to make your own gifts, and even earn a little pocket money! I have been knitting for over 20 years and selling my knitted creations for about 10 years. I can get you started with knitting!

About Christelle
I love creating: writing, knitting, seeing new things come to life and thrive. I have extensive experience teaching women's health classes and counseling in natural women's health, because motherhood courses through my veins. I am also a published author and speaker.

I love to encourage and support my students and build into your lives -- to see you make goals, work hard to achieve them, and then succeed! If you are a student who will work hard -- and have fun doing so -- and want a coach who will cheer you on, then I am the teacher for you!

Baby Sign Language classes are either caregiver and child or caregiver alone. Baby Signs classes are appropriate for young children age 5 years old and under. Health coaching services are for women age 18 years old and up. My ESL classes are for women who are at least 18 years old.

As we took a childbirth class from Christelle, you might say we took one of the most important classes in our lives from her! We honestly believe if we had not taken her class we would not have had nearly so positive an experience in natural childbirth, so much credit is due to her. Christelle prepared thoroughly for all our lessons, included interesting activities and personal anecdotes. Most importantly, Christelle made it clear that she cared not only about our grasp of the content but also about us as people. That made all the difference.

Knitting can be tough if you're trying to learn on your own! I can help walk you through it, and you'll be surprised how much you're really capable of. We'll start with the basics if you're a beginner, but if you're already learning or have some experience already, I can help you learn exciting new skills so you can take on more intricate, challenging projects.
I've been knitting for over 10 years and I have experience doing projects with shaping, colorwork, and texture. If you want to pick a project as your end goal, we can do that as well! Looking forward to meeting you!

About Laura
I'm a self-taught knitter, and I started knitting over ten years ago. I also crochet, and I've been doing that for over fifteen years now! I love learning new techniques and pushing the limits of what I can do! I've made tons of scarves, hats, and mitts, but I've also made blankets, ornaments, and others.

I teach students that have never knitted/crocheted before, or have experience and just want help with a specific pattern, or want to push the limits and try something new!

Want to make something as a holiday gift? We can pick a simple project and have it done in time for the holidays!

I love knitting patterns with interesting textures, and my favorite style is mosaic colorwork!

Reach out and we can figure out a plan that works well for you!

Laura was beyond patient with me. At first my hand coordination was pretty terrible. I had a hard time holding onto the needle and draping the yarn correctly over my hand but, Laura kept reminding me, this is my first time and it’s going to take practice. After my lessons she would give me homework and YouTube addresses where I could look if I got hung up on what to do next. Laura is a true teacher and cares about your progress!!

Brooke understands that each knitter is unique in their reasons for knitting and where they are on their knitting journey. She finds the most joy in building up knitters’ confidence, helping timid knitters break out of their comfort zones and encouraging experienced knitters in better techniques. Brooke hosts weekly ‘ale carte’ knitting & crochet classes where beginners and advanced students get help on any item. Her funnest challenges are helping left-handed crafters. She also offers speciality classes on a monthly basis covering such things as: toe-up socks, fixing your knitting mistakes and even dying your own yarn.

About Brooke
I approach my students with the same attention to detail that I approach my own knitting. There is nothing more frustrating than trying to knit something and it always end up turning out wrong no matter how much you try to understand the pattern. Most of what I teach is how to read the fabric the knitting creates and how to improve your own method. I would have never been able to do this with out all of my own experiences and all the experiences that lead me to where I am now.

I have been raising my daughter, being a wife and all the while knitting and challenging myself to become better for no other reason than for myself. I took on small projects, like baby sweaters, mending store bought sweaters, making blankets and built from there.

Many times I would be at a stand still and would to go to a local yarn shop or find knitting refere
nce books to figure out what I needed to do to fix my problems. Mostly, half of my time knitting was spent ripping (frogging; as knitters say) out my work and picking all my stitches back up.

My life as a sergeant in the Army gave me a “can do” attitude that helped me to never give up. Now, that doesn’t mean my knitting didn’t ever go in a “time out” basket. However, one thing the Army encourages in the their enlisted ranks is to find a way to get a job done with the end in mind. So, that was me, just jumping in, not being afraid to do so. I mean what was the worst that could happen? It wasn’t like I was jumping out of plane. (Yes, I did do that, too, while I was in the Army.)
During this time I was also homeschooling our daughter and when you do this it forces independent study and good research traits. The answer is always out there somewhere and yes, I did believe.

Along came another life shift. This time my daughter would be taking less of my time as she was going to college and my husband would no longer be active duty. I wandered into my local craft store where I knew the yarn manager and mentioned that my life was going to drastically change. I saw her excitement plain as day on her face. “Why not put in an application?”, she asked. I did, and she promptly retired within the next few months. The teaching opportunity almost, literally fell in my lap. But, the beauty of it all was that I was willing to accept yet another life change and as a result found my passion.

I find knitting relaxing and therapeutic. Knitters have come to me in tears, frustrated because of how complicated instructions can seem. I don't stop until my client completely understands them and realizes "wow, that wasn't so hard."

About Stephanie
I'm Stephanie and I love knitting. I taught myself to knit while recuperating from a back injury in 2002 and I have been knitting ever since. Its relaxing and therapeutic while at the same time giving you a chance to create something functional and beautiful for family and friends.
