Want to make your own garments? Want to finally understand cables, lace, charts, reading patterns and even designing your own patterns? Interested in modifying a pattern to fit your unique shape? I can teach you these along with all the details it takes to create a truly beautiful hand-knitted item.

Hi, and welcome to the world of knitting. It is a joy to me to teach people this wonderfully creative and useful craft. I have been knitting, spinning, and working with fiber since 2002, and have had unique patterns published in international knitting magazines, such as Interweave Knits. I have taught knitting to classes and individuals since 2008. Additionally, I have an art degree, which helps me help you design and choose yarn for your perfect project whether it's a simple scarf or a complex fair-isle sweater.

Karen is a patient instructor. Has a relaxed home atmosphere. Made good use of the lesson time. Had appropriate practice outlined between lessons. I would recommend her.

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.

We will produce hand built jewelry (no casting or smelting) in a hands on class tailored to your skill level and style preference.
For the first class I would provide materials and then give you recommendations on materials that you could purchase.

About Teresita

ART: I love making art accessible to everyone. I am passionate about helping people get in touch with the artist that lives within them. Many people think they're "not good at art" but my philosophy is that you can be good at art as long as it makes you feel something. If you enjoy it, that's good
