I have been knitting for twelve years and I have ten years of teaching experience. I have taught all of my children and the neighborhood children to knit and enjoy uplifting the spirits of others with this beautiful art.

I am located in California and am available on webcam only unless by appointment in person. My primary focus when tutoring is to ensure that the experience is a happy one and the student learns the requested skill and is more confident about knitting that before we engaged. Yarn is very forgiving. Knitting takes patience and time but is very relaxing. I enjoy every moment of it.


A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME

I enjoy knitting everything and with every type of yarn. I do not discriminate. The only type of yarn I do not like is the yarn that runs out in the middle of a project. I enjoy knitting for charity and for those in need. I donate to hospitals and I knit for people that are battling cancer. I encourage others that I teach to knit with the same amount of love and compassion. This is a great passion of mine and I want to share my passion with the world. This is a lost art and I want to continue this wonderful art to every generation. I am also on instagram at #detsysknitting.

LESSON DETAILS

Please inform me what you would like to learn, what your want to make before the lesson to avoid wasting time. I would also like to ensure that I am prepared with materials, equipment, books, etc. to ensure full learning occurs. The student is expected to bring their equipment.

Bernadet teaches knitting so smoothly and gracefully. Shes not easily aggravated when you don't get it and is so reassuring and kind. I had never knitted before and now have 3 projects going. She's a great teacher I highly recommend her.

I learned to knit when I made a scarf. I have been knitting for 2 years. Bernadette taught me how to knit when I was only 8 years old. Bernadette is the best knitting teacher because she knows a lot about knitting and she won't go faster than you are ready to go. She moves at the right speed. She knew when I needed help and she taught me how to pearl too. I liked learning how to read a pattern and how to use different yarns.

I am 12 years old. Bernadette taught me how to knit when I was 9 years old. She it explains it very well and if you get stressed she will help you out. When I make a mistake with what ever I make she will fix it and tell what I did wrong. I won first place for a art contest with my knitting. I made a wash cloth. I love knitting so much.
