Hi, I'm so glad to be part of your knitting journey! Over the past twenty years, I've taught thousands of people just like you to become knitters and help them improve their skills.
They've learned in my shop, my website, my books, and my YouTube channel. I know the pain-points that may keep you from moving forward in your knitting journey and can help you overcome them.
It's hard to know what materials to buy, where to begin, and how to get over the initial learning curve. You'll learn all of these things and much, much more!
Learning in a group setting can be stressful, especially if you are a visual learner. You may need to see a technique several times before it "clicks." There's no reason for discomfort or embarrassment. You'll learn at your own pace without any stress or pressure. And, I'll be there to guide you every step of the way.Happy knitting!
