I learned to knit as an 8 year old from my grandmother. I love the way knitting allows me to connect with memories from my past and create one of a kind gifts for the people in my life!

Happy to walk you through anything from the basic stitches to lace knitting, color work, knitting in the round, and following patterns.

I have had the pleasure of working with Eleni in orchestra and in a quintet. She is an incredible horn player as well as a wonderful person! Eleni is energetic, positive, kind and supportive. She has great techniques for working on musical problems, and is very clear in her instructions. I definitely recommend working with Eleni!!

Greetings!
I have been knitting for nearly a decade now, and along the way what I’ve learned is that people thrive when they are being encouraged. I believe that every person can learn to knit if they are willing to be patient and gentle with themselves. Knitting is simply a relationship between the brain, the hands, and yarn. I do not like to tell people there is a “right or wrong” way to knit. As long as you get the desired results and are able to translate instructions, that’s great! I am an ambidextrous knitter, meaning I knit English and Continental style (left or right handed knitting). I also love teaching knitters of all ages- especially children or older adults who have never tried to knit before.
Positivity, grace, gentleness, and a positive attitude are what I rely on most heavily to teach. I truly believe that every single person can learn to knit in an hour. I have taught lessons to groups of thirty women at a time in Uganada with only two sets of knitting needles, and ...

About Morgan

Greetings! My name is Morgan and I have been knitting for nearly a decade now. I believe that knitting is a deeply meditative experience and that it can be an emotionally and mentally healing exercise. Also, there are few things more satisfying than casting off a beautiful piece and wearing it

Self time to learn something new and relaxing. Knitting has been part of my life for over 25 years. I love to teach others something new and and bring them to a place of refreshing rest at they create. Beginners and Intermediate levels are welcome.

About Melisa

I love to teach. I first learned to knit as a 21 yr old that decided to move to Norway from Kentucky to be with my boyfriend after I graduated from college. My mother-in-law taught me how over 35 years ago. Knitting is a great way to relax, it is repetitious so it is great for those with anxiety

Experienced and patient first came to mind. Has been a knitting peer and problem solving friend for more than 10 years, and we knit together weekly when not practicing shelter in place.
Susan
Melisa is a very experienced knitter. Even though she is at such a high level, she can instruct others and explain techniques in a very understandable way. She enjoys watching students gain confidence and improve their skills. Very few knitters have Melisa’s mastery of this art or the ability that she has to teach it.

"Jane was a lovely and kind. She taught with much patience as I continuously dropped stitches, she assure me and then use my mistakes to include another skill within the lesson. So, in this one-hour lesson I learned to knit, purl, decrease and undo stitches when I made a mistake! It was a really nice class!"
