About Elizabeth S.

Hi there! My name is Elizabeth and I was 9 years old when my grandma taught me how to crochet - and I've been writing patterns and making custom creations ever since. With over 10,000 downloads of my published knitting patterns and a flawless five-star rating I'm sure I can find a solution to what ails your knitting or crocheting! Aside from the fiber arts I love to hike, dirtbike, snowboard, bake, and practice yoga. I'm published author, accomplished musician, and certified crochet and knitting instructor, but most importantly I am a full-time stay at home mom! I also consult part-time as an administrator in civil aviation.

Elizabeth was so kind and helpful with learning brioche knitting. She explained and showed it in steps that was easy to understand and follow. I will definitely be back for more lessons. Highly recommend.

I have had several knitting lessons with Elizabeth in the past few months. I was looking for a knitting instructor to help me learn how to follow Ann Budd's method, which is a knitting recipe. It's actually very complicated and above my skill set. However, Elizabeth patiently helped every step of the way, and I have learned so many helpful tips along the way. I will be booking more lessons with her in the future.

Elizabeth is the most talented, knowledgeable, upbeat instructor for knitting and crochet that you will find. From helping beginners learn the basics to coaching a seasoned knitter through a specific technical problem on their project, Elizabeth can do it all. And her glowing personality will put a smile on your face at the same time. If you want to learn to knit or crochet or improve your skill level, give Elizabeth a try.

She would have been a good teacher if it wasn't for the no-shows without notice. She was pleasant and knowledgeable about crochet. I tried to be understanding about the constant schedule changes, but I usually had to contact her first to see why she wasn't at the lesson. I should have had three classes leftover that was part of the package that I ordered, but I canceled them instead. I will look for another option to learn crochet. If you have a free schedule, perhaps she will work for you, but I would think twice about it if you have to stick to a specific time. I usually don't write bad reviews, but I don't want you to feel blindsided.

OMG, Elizabeth is amazing! I have ZERO coordination/fine motor skills/crafting/art ability, and within our first 45min session, we casted on, and now (8hrs later) I have 5 rows on my needle! (After many restarts lol). I was so excited that I emailed her. Lol

I can’t wait for our next lesson!!!

Elizabeth is great. As someone who recently took up knitting and have no idea what I am doing, Elizabeth explained the differences in needles, best yarn to use and was very flexible with the lesson schedule. After three lessons, I am halfway to completing my first scarf with a goal of making a blanket!

WOW! It has been years since I picked up a crochet hook and Elizabeth was able to help re-teach me stitches and how to read a pattern. Elizabeth is very patient and shared alot of great pointers! I now feel confident to complete a baby blanket that my Mother began years and years ago and never finished. Thankyou for your magic Elizabeth! <3

Elizabeth has been great. She teaches my daughter and has made her feel comfortable. Her lessons are always simple to follow but not so easy as to make it boring. I highly recommend her classes.

Elizabeth is extremely patient and thorough. She made sure I understood each stitch she taught me. I came to the first class frustrated by trying to be self-taught. By the end of class I was excited about my project again. I look forward to finishing the blanket I’m working on so she can teach me to do another.

After just one lesson I went from being a frustrated knot maker to a happy knitter. Elizabeth offered me simple but incredibly practical guidance that immediately improved my self-taught (terrible) knitting.

Elizabeth was a great teacher, very patient with my 7 year old. Flexible in teaching whatever we were looking for, which was the basics. Sent videos and material suggestions as well. Would recommend.

I reached out to Elizabeth to help me with an afghan pattern that used a graph instead of written instructions (which I had never done before) and she explained everything super clearly. She even helped me modify the pattern to be exactly how I wanted it. She cleared up some confusion I had on how to work with it and gave me some really helpful tips! Thanks again Elizabeth!

This was a 2 person class we had set up ( friends wanting to have class together) w/ Elizabeth.
I cant speak enough of how informative Elizabeth was prior to class & during class. Elizabeth is very friendly and easy to talk to, explained each step & stayed at our pace ....very patient & flexible with her schedule.
We had our 2nd lesson and she was even more helpful with our many questions and critiquing our work. Can't wait to finish our project and have a third class.

I needed help starting a project called Winter Pillow using Judy’s Magic Loop. I had viewed many YouTube videos on the subject that were only partially helpful. Elizabeth got me on the right track with the project and provided extra tips to use as worked through the rest of the pillow. She was also very accommodating with scheduling.

Elizabeth is an awesome teacher! Prior to taking the class I spent 4 hours trying to learn how to knit through youtube and could not figure it out. In my first class Elizabeth taught me how to cast on, knit stich, and pearl stitch! I really enjoyed her class and will definitely be taking another one. Thank you! Also, she is great to talk to.
