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!

My Christmas Stocking Story

Stockings are Cherished Gifts

I still have the Christmas stocking my grandma made for me over fifty years ago.

I also still have the Christmas stockings my sister made for my small family (my husband, our baby, and me) over twenty years ago.

These are very cherished gifts that I love pulling out of the Christmas box every year.

Not only do I appreciate the hard work that went into making each of them, but I also cherish the holiday memories these stockings created.

Every year, when I hang those stockings on the mantel, I'm reminded of those handcrafters I love so much. I admire their work and stuff their stockings to create new memories for those I care about.

You can give the gift of warm holiday memories to your children, grandchildren, and other loved ones by creating Christmas stockings just for them.
