I went to a beginner’s knitting machine class and I am totally hooked. Princess is a lovely, patient teacher and so helpful. She showed me how to cast on and cast of, knit hems, strips, use a punchcard and I could try different yarns. I made myself a scarf I really love. Princess provided me with information about what we did, which machines are good for beginners because I am considering to buy one. I can’t wait to go back for more classes and get more experience. Thank you Princess!!! I wish I could upload a picture of my scarf.

Princess is an amazing teacher I can't wait to go back and learn more about how to use my knitting machine. I have had my machine for so long but did not know where to start, but she made it calming and simple for me. I learnt to make a hem, to cast on in two different ways and to cast off. I made a beautiful scarf with the wool she provided which I am so grateful. I really cannot recommend her enough.

I did several days of workshop with Princess working on refreshing my machine knitting skills. She was very knowledgable, patient and answered my numerous questions! She has plenty of room and resources to help you on your machine knitting journey. I would recommend Princess wether you are a beginner or not. She is a rare find!

Princess is a really great teacher! She has taught me a lot about how to use the machine and different techniques in only a couple lessons, as she explains everything really clearly; she has also helped me with my projects for college. I have really enjoyed my lessons, which have caused me to fall in love with knitting. I will be having more lessons in the future!
