I have been a knitting and crochet instructor since 2003.
All skill levels taught from just learning to knit to advanced techniques such as colorwork, cable work, intricate lace and everything in between.
I love my craft, I love sharing my knowledge, tips & tricks with other fiber enthusiasts to help them further their talents.
Individual or group lessons, $15/hour private lessons per student, groups of 3 or more discounted.
Want to learn something specific? Let me know!!

Upcoming Classes



The heat may be getting to me…
…how about you??
My projects have become smaller and smaller with lighter weight yarns and cool colors.
Looking forward to the cool down, it’s a good time to learn new techniques or just brush up on them.
With holiday gift knitting pretty much upon us it’s a good idea to be prepared with new fun styles of knitting to make up quick and unique gifts.
