Have you always wanted to learn to knit? I can teach you the in's and out's of knitting from beginning to end. Want to learn a new technique and need a little help? I often will take the time to learn new techniques just for the challenge of it. I have taught since 2010 and love knitting anything from washcloths to ornaments to socks and sweaters and beyond. This is a portable and relaxing activity.

About Angela C.

I learned to crochet in grade school, taught myself to knit and learned to sew from my mother at a very early age. Teaching grade school children/students is my passion. I believe learning to knit and sew can help students learn a level of patience and persistence that will help them in their school work.
In October, I retook and passed the NCLEX, and I have restored my nursing license to active status. I would love to tutor nursing students of all levels. My professional background is in Pediatrics - especially Pediatric Critical Care. I'm especially passionate about helping nursing students that need help with basic math/algebra.

Angela is a very knowledgeable instructor! She helped me come up with different ways to construct garments for my unique business and sped up my surging and sewing skills in just 5 lessons. She’s very patient and excellent at explaining things in depth and easy for a beginner to understand. I would definitely recommend Angela!

Very lovely and welcoming teacher. She asked my daughter about her goal and worked with her patiently to achieve it. We might come back again next year.

Angela was a an excellent instructor! She was very engaged with staff as we had zero experience! Angela was able to incorporate mindfulness practices into our knitting session with my management team. I would highly recommend her!

We have only had one lesson, and my daughter (7) keeps asking when Angela comes back - she loved her lesson. Angela is a very patient teacher.

Angela and I talked about what I wanted to accomplish with these lessons. We talked about what my current skills are and what I needed to learn sock knitting.
For my first class we started on my socks. I got set up and I went home with my “homework” and a sense of accomplishment. I am on my way to finish my first pair!

It was a great start. Angela answered my questions and helped me understand what my next steps would be. She was assigned homework 😊,

Angela has an easy style of instruction. "Relearning" how to sew, and honestly, she has taught me things I NEVER knew before. Super patient and thorough. Angela teaches you exactly what you are capable at your level of experience.

Angela is awesome! She is kind, patient, organized, gives clear instructions and very easy to work with. My dogs barked the entire time and my home is less than white-glove clean; but she puts you at ease and you never feel talked down too or judged in any way. You will not be sorry for choosing her as your teacher.
