I love knitting, enjoying making a huge variety of items using many different techniques. I knit using the English style, having grown up in Cheshire, England, but also knit using the Continental style of knitting too. I have been teaching knitting in groups and on a one to one basis for a few years. My students have ranged in age from 8 years old to 80 years old.
If you need help with a specific project, learning a new technique or just starting out as a beginner knitter, please get in touch.

Dawn is a wonderful instructor. She is very knowledgeable. Patient and willing to answer my questions. I had concerns about my ability to learn sewing, but Dawn has helped my confidence greatly. I plan to continue my sewing journey with Dawn:)
Marie
Dawn has wonderful instruction and is quite patient with new beginners like myself! Explanation is clear and she has a freakin wealth of knowledge about sewing, patterns, tips and tricks to make the outcome much neater, and starts off with the perfect projects for a beginner. Def a five start rating! :-)

Dawn is awesome! Very thorough with her explanations and really customizes lessons to my goals. She’s very encouraging and always reachable for questions outside of classes. Her hardware set up was conducive to on line lessons so it felt as much of an in person class as it could get. The lessons have really prepared me and got me excited for many more sewing projects!

Clear, easy instruction and lots of patience. I love to teach others something new and bring them to a place of refreshing rest as they learn to create new and wonderful things. Adult Beginners and Intermediate levels are welcome. I will teach the basics for beginners - Cast on/off, knit/purl stitches, increasing/decreasing and we will finish with a project. Intermediates usually need help getting started again, finishing a project or help with a pattern, I will also teach you new stitch patterns to have fun with.

Bonnie is an excellent knitting instructor. She is very patient and astute. She pays close attention to her student’s work during the lesson and she is very knowledgeable about the knitting she teaches.

Genesis
Bonnie, taught me how to knit In a matter of minutes. I was a bit hesitant of taking an online course when it came to knitting however she is very tech savvy and placed the camera in a perfect position. I was able to see her and at the same time see where her hands were on the needles when she was teaching me how to knit. She is. very skillful teacher, calm and also very kind. If you have ever wanted to learn how to knit book a class with her and you will surely learn.

Erin was extremely knowledgeable and patient during our lessons. I'm a beginner and knew just one stitch and now know several more and have a better idea at following patterns, too! I appreciate the time and, again, patience she had for me when I dropped stitches, as well! I would highly recommend Erin to anyone who wants to up their knitting game!!

"Bonnie is the real deal. She's the BEST KNITTING TEACHER I've ever had - and I've had quite a few - because she actually knows how to teach!

I set up a Zoom appointment so she could help me with a project I started in a local class. She instantly identified an error in the pattern that saved me hours of frustration.

She then showed me how to do three new stitches using her Zoom camera and patiently watched me create them to make sure I understood.

Most importantly, she's the first teacher to explain how to read and analyze a pattern while showing me her process so I can do it myself next time. That knowledge alone was priceless. She then showed me how to write out the next steps of the pattern - including showing me how she did the math to calculate the stitch decreases.

But, I'm most excited about the fact that she also drew a PICTURE that demonstrated what the pattern was saying to do. She did this naturally - that's just her teaching style. I have to say, it's eye-opening.

I feel like I just learned in one hour with Bonnie what would've taken me years to pick up bit by bit with other teachers I've had or family and friends."
