Instructor: Ellen Taylor
Instructor Bio: Ellen is an amazing knitter. Ellen was encouraged from a young age to be creative. As a child, she was taught to cook and sew by her mother. Her family renovated and maintained four homes, and as she was growing up, she learned lots of things including drywall, painting, wallpaper, flooring installation, garden overhaul and lawn maintenance. Somewhere along the way in Indian Guides, Girl Scouts or 4-H, she learned to crochet. When she was twelve her grandmother tried to teach her to knit but it didn?t stick. As Ellen worked on her bachelor?s at Western, she took up cross stitch and continued to crochet to fill her time between classes. As a young professional, she stitched and crocheted many gifts as friends got married and had children. These included wedding thank you gifts for her parents and in-laws. As her own children were growing up, Ellen tried again to learn to knit. The book she was learning from didn?t replace the personal attention required to diagnose what she was doing incorrectly. A personal touch made the difference. Her instructor watched, she was able to point out and help her correct her mistakes. Since then Ellen has created many handmade items, both knitted and crocheted. Her enthusiasm and love for fiber arts has led her to design her own garments and patterns. She has taken classes with Sally Melville, Laura Bryant, Sarah Peasley, Deb McDermott and Galina Khmeleva. She worked previously at Artisan Knitworks. Ellen leads our Thursday morning group from 10 to 12, working on finishing up individual projects.
