Learn to Knit from a certified knitting teacher
Levels taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I am an experienced knitting teacher and am certified to teach knitting by The Knitting Guild Association (TKGA) and the Craft Yarn Council of America. My goal is to educate and preserve for future generations the appreciation of hand knitting as a fiber art that provides stress relief, is a creative outlet, and provides a sense of accomplishment. I truly enjoy teaching others to knit and have enjoyed 15 years of helping new knitter's confidence soar and creativity grow while teaching knitting in various venues throughout Los Angeles and Orange Counties including Pasadena City College, Monrovia Adult School, the City of Santa Fe Springs, City of Glendale, City of Orange and City of Whittier. Since 2004 I’ve taught hundreds of people the craft of knitting. While developing a well-organized teaching approach, creating effective lesson plans and fun methods of teaching basic to advanced techniques and sharpening my ability to tailor my teaching skills to fit the needs of all students I’ve learned that there’s no wrong way to knit and absolutely everyone can learn this rewarding hobby. Whether you’re just learning to knit or your grandmother taught you when you were five.... I can help you to expand your knowledge. I look forward to knitting with you!
