Clear, easy instruction and lots of patience. That is what was shone to me over 30 years ago. I love to teach others something new and and bring them to a place of refreshing rest as they learn to create new and wonderful pieces. Adult Beginners and Intermediate levels are welcome.

About Melisa M.

I love to teach. I first learned to knit as a 21 yr old that decided to move to Norway. My mother-in-law taught me how over 35 years ago. Knitting is a great way to relax, it is repetitious so it is great for those with anxiety and other problems related to stress or focusing. I have been teaching children and adults for over 15 years. We each have creativity inside of us that needs to be shared and expressed. I also love the aspect of knitting creating a fabric that is wearable. My other interest are foraging, natural dyeing of fabric and yarns and needle and wet felting. I hope to bring out something new in every student I teach and that they will develop a love of knitting and other fiber arts.

Melisa was super patient with me, as I am a beginner! She praised me when I finally understood and performed the stitches well! I am excited to continue with my lessons with her!

Experienced and patient first came to mind. Has been a knitting peer and problem solving friend for more than 10 years, and we knit together weekly when not practicing shelter in place.

Melisa is a very experienced knitter. Even though she is at such a high level, she can instruct others and explain techniques in a very understandable way. She enjoys watching students gain confidence and improve their skills. Very few knitters have Melisa’s mastery of this art or the ability that she has to teach it.

Melisa is a professional knitter. She is very talented in many ways, from knowing about the yarn, the weight of the yarn, and the best yarn for the pattern. Melissa's teaching technique is easy going and easy to understand. I highly recommend Melissa as a kniiting instructor.

Melisa is a great instructor!! She’s been knitting for years and loves sharing her passion for creativity with others. Whether you are a beginner or a veteran knitter, she is able to help you from the most basic skills to learning intricate patterns. I highly recommend booking an individual or group lesson with her!

My daughter and I had a fabulous time with Melisa. My daughter took classes over the summer. Melisa is so kind, patient and accommodating. My daughter learned a skill she will have with her forever. I highly recommend Melisa's knitting classes. They are fun and affordable!
