I loved that Jennifer structured the class to allow us to work at our own pace. I felt comfortable taking my time to learn what I needed to know.
Great job with the worksheets – I liked that I was able to take notes and go home with extra resources.

About My Classes
My classes are offered at a variety of venues including fiber festivals, local yarn stores, online classes and videos.
When teaching, it’s important to me to set my students up for success – I want everyone to have a positive and fun experience!
I know that everyone learns differently, so my classes feature interactive elements and clear worksheets. I bring an awareness and ability to teach to different learning styles and levels to all my classes.
As an added bonus, I always bring my can-do attitude, high-energy style and ready sense of humor to the table.
… I really liked that [Jennifer] had a backup plan so I could work on something else when she realized I already knew how to work a short row heel.
