Patricia has always had a passion for knitting and teaching. As a person whose professional interests include engineering and computer programming, Patricia says the craft of knitting is the perfect means of drawing together her technical and creative interests.  In addition to being a seasoned knitting instructor, Patricia has worked in numerous yarn shops and owned her own store for 15 years.

Patricia has taught knitting to people from all lifestyles and levels of experience. “To be successful as a beginning knitter, I think it's important to understand that you won't be perfect right away—true for many things,” she says. “You need to keep at it. There will be frustrations so you need perseverance. The take away: don't give up.”
