It's the fastest way to learn! $100 for 2-hour private class at a nearby coffee house. Private classes can cover the following topics:

  • KNITTING BASICS: Learn all the beginner basics (cast on, knit, purl, bind off, change color, and more!). Be ready to start on a beginner project! Additional $15 supplies fee.
  • CROCHET BASICS: Learn all the beginner basics (chain, single crochet, double crochet, treble, and simple edgings). Additional $15 supplies fee.
  • CUSTOM KNITTING or CROCHET CLASS (Any Level): Tell me what you want to learn and I will teach it! Whether it's how to read a pattern, how to knit a sweater pattern, learning to knit lace, learning to knit cables, seaming and finishing a project, altering a written pattern, etc. I can help! Whatever we can cover in a 2-hour session is fair game!

Private classes can be scheduled on weekday mornings (and some evenings) and some weekend mornings/early afternoons, open to availability.

"I just wanted to say thank you! I took your group class and had so much fun. I've been wanting to learn to knit for years but avoided it because I was intimidated and had some weird belief that I would be completely incapable of picking it up. Your class was so great! You made me feel comfortable and capable and your instruction was so clear and specific. You made knitting feel real and possible for me. Thank you for helping me do something I've wanted to for so long. I'm sure I'll be signing up for more lessons in the future." -- Heidi K.

"I had a GREAT time learning things from you. I think mostly, it gave me the boost in confidence that I needed to really get cracking on making things. I decided to use some scrap yarn I had to do a practice baby sweater before I do the one for my cousin. As I go through row after row, I'm amazed that it's actually looking like a sweater! And that I'm making it no less!" -- Anita M.

"Thank you for the pattern and also for the lessons. I really had a great time. I started working on the baby beanie the minute I got home. I would have started in the car, but Louise insisted I keep my eyes on the road while I was driving :-) Louise already finished her beanie and was wearing it around the office today... Hopefully we will get to take another class with you. We will keep a lookout for your class schedule. Please include me on any mailing list you might have." -- Leanne A.
