The nicest knitting teacher in the world

Knitters who regularly read this blog know that I'm a great admirer of Helen Bingham, teacher, designer and knitting and crochet expert from Rehoboth, Massachusetts.  I've known Helen through her tenure at two Providence LYS, A Stitch Above and Fresh Purls, now both, sadly, closed. However, I wanted you-all to know that Helen will be running an amazing class in Providence during the month of June, at the beautiful Hamilton House on Angell Street. I'll let Helen tell you about this in her own words, and I hope you can benefit from her magical knitting intuition!


Hello Knitters in the Providence, RI area,
I am offering a series of “Help Clinics” at Hamilton House during the month of June. Hamilton House is located at 276 Angell Street which is on the corner of Hope Street on the East Side. There is street parking available. Jessica and Anna are allowing me to rent space in this beautiful building so I may continue to teach after Fresh Purls closes on May 31st.
Every Tuesday from 10:30 - noon we will be meeting in their beautiful sitting rooms. This is a chance for you to receive lots of help with a wide array of knitting or crochet related items. Do you need help reading a pattern? Do you want to learn how to knit? Have you made a mistake and need assistance getting back on track? Do you want to learn how to do cables? Do you want to learn how to do the Magic Loop? These are just some of the things I can help you with.
To sign up for all four Tuesdays (4, 11, 18, 25) it will be $30. If you want to commit to one Tuesday then it is $10 per session. These Clinics are limited to fifteen students. To reserve your spot please go then continue to “Hamilton House” to pay in advance. To learn more about Hamilton House please go to
Please contact me if you have any questions via Ravelry or
Thank you


  1. All who can should take advantage of Helen's teaching!

  2. Three cheers for Helen - I'm a fan of hers, too! Holy cow, did I just agree with Deborah Newton?! And so glad to hear Helen touting Magic Loop. It gets such a bad rap but it really, really (she claimed breathlessly) changed my life.
