Author & Knitting Expert

Nancy Queen

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 understand the pain points that keep you from getting started. It's hard to know what materials to buy, where to begin, and how to get over the initial learning curve. I will help you with all of these frustrations. Learning in a group setting can feel like a lot of pressure, especially if you don't pick up the techniques right away. You may not want others to see you knit until you feel comfortable. With my courses, 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!
