Hi there! I'm Christin, lover of knitting, robots, cupcakes, scifi, and many other things. My love for teaching stems from my love of learning.
I have experience teaching small and large groups, students, faculty, and corporate suit-types. I teach with a bright, cheerful personality, plenty of patience, a love of hands-on-learning, and with random sci-fi examples whenever possible.

"I took a class with Christin and it was perfect for someone with butter fingers like me! She is patient and adjusts her lessons to the individual, depending on their experience level. She is incredibly knowledgeable about knitting, very creative and has terrific ideas. She will get as intricate or basic as you need. She also plays fun music. :D"

"Christin did a knitting team building exercise for our team. She was prepared and had extra supplies. None of us knew how to knit and by the end of the session we were well on our way. Some of us made scarves while others decided to get adventurous and made slippers. Christin knows her stuff and can teach anyone how to knit. "

"Christin Upshaw brings a new, fun, and creative touch to keynote and powerpoint presentations. During the course of her class, Christin inspired students to express themselves through design, resulting in a powerful, effective, and captivating presentation. My slides would not be what they are today without her help!"

"I was lucky enough to get an opportunity to get schooled by Christin on how to knit. She moves quickly, but makes sure you understand fully. She's a complete doll! I would recommend her services to anyone. (and not just knitting!--photoshop and slide design as well) She's the best!"

"I had the pleasure of attending a Photoshop Basics Course with Christin in January 2011. The intimate course was structured around what the students wanted to gain out of the experience. In the quick 90 minute session, I gathered more information from Christin than the numerous tutorials I have viewed over the years.
Now, I am able to edit files to fit my needs as an educator and for personal use. Photoshop has many tools within the program and is a bit overwhelming. The course offered by Christin breaks down the elements into an easy to digest format. Now when I open Photoshop, I feel confident that I can use the tools effectively.
Great course for new users to the software or if you just want to get better acquainted with all the tools. "

"Christin did a private knitting party at my house back in November 2010. She came prepared with additional supplies, knitting books and spunky personality.
Through her guidance, we learned how to complete several different styles and had so much fun doing it! We left with the knowledge to get started on our own and received a follow up email from Christin with additional resources/tips.
It was a great experience that made learning to knit fun. I highly recommend hosting a knitting party! "
