Polymer button by LynnH

I'm Lynn Hershberger.

I've been explaining and encouraging for my entire adult life. LynnH Demonstrating a Technique It's no surprise, then, that I've been a professional instructor since 1994. This is my "day job," it's my primary focus.

It doesn't matter if the subject is knitting, feltmaking or polymer clay... students in my classes don't just follow instructions, they learn to understand.

May I Teach for You?

I'm a passionate explainer. There is nothing as satisfying as seeing the light go on in a student's eyes.

My students are knitters, crocheters, weavers, basketmakers and other fiberartists. For those who create garments, buttons are particularly important, which is where polymer clay fits in.

"...At Sock Summit, the knitter found a sage who specialized in lifting Pooling curses.

"This kind woman, known as Lynn Hershberger, was wise in both the ways of color and in the ways of keeping distraught Pooling Curse-afflicted knitters from stabbing themselves with their needles out of sheer frustration.

"She shared the magic needed to banish the Pooling Curse...
...the magic by Lynn was good and true...

"And the socks were beautiful."
