I devote my time to promote the values and benefits of knitting and crocheting.
I learned to knit when I was five years old. My grandmother taught me my first stitches. I learned to crochet on my own and then, I taught my grandmother to crochet. It did not take me long to start designing and making my own sweaters and dresses. It was then when I developed my passion for knitting and it has brought me to open my own yarn store and studio. Come join us for an afternoon, it could change your life.
Knitting is a social craft. You can knit and talk about anything at the same time. And when everybody leaves for home, we feel much better after sharing our problems. I designed my store with a table and chairs in the front, inviting anyone to sit and join us while we knit.
Knitting is relaxing and can be meditative. It is therapeutic, both in it's social aspect and it's relaxing qualities.
Knitting is my way of expressing my creativity and originality. Everything I make is an original work, because it is one of a kind, and nobody else has it. You do not need to be an experienced knitter to achieve great results.
You possess the power of giving! Make a hat or blanket and give it to a friend, or to a non-profit organization. By knitting and giving it away, it is a great way to practice your craft, and you give something to others they will cherish forever.
I have a degree in education, and I offer many classes in my studio. I cater to beginners and experts with a variety of projects. Sign up for our newsletter to find out about our latest classes!
