I Love Knitting & Crochet. Lisa has been an inspiration & encouraged me over the years to try making things I would never have thought possible.
If I get stuck on any pattern she not only helps me figure it out & get restarted again but also helps me document a way I can refer back to & understand. She is patient & a great communicator.
I always look forward to attending her classes.

Lisa has such patience and a very calm approach to teaching knitting and crocheting - especially when taking online classes. Plus she easily manages keeping everyone moving along at their own pace. In a recent dream catcher crochet class, I was much slower and behind most of the others in the class, yet Lisa continually showed me the new stitch over and over again til it clicked. Yet she also would demonstrate the next round of stitches for those crocheting at a faster pace.

Lisa is an accomplished crafter who has a wonderful ability to teach crafts to those at various skill levels. She is very attentive and encouraging, a true pleasure to be instructed by. Whether in person or online she is very personable and accommodating. I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone seeking knowledge in her areas of expertise.

I took two classes with Lisa when she was teaching at Lion Brand Studio: Fair Isle Hat and Mosaic Mitts. She is an excellent knitting teacher. She is well-prepared and clear in her instructions. Her written handouts were perfect and she answered all of my questions. I highly recommend any class with Lisa!

I met Lisa years ago when I began crocheting and knitting. Lisa was very instrumental in starting me off into knitting. Through Lisa's guidance and patience I was able to finish two knitting projects in a year's time which was a surprise to me. Whether the classes were in a craft store or in her home, Lisa provides great instruction. I will never forget her kindness towards me as I struggled to learn how to knit. If anyone is looking for an instructor that is skilled and patient, Lisa is your gal!
