I’ve worked in various yarn stores for the past 15 years and factor in the likes of my customers in my designs & classes.

Design

My designs are very wearable, the kind of pieces in your wardrobe you want to live in.

My patterns are clear and easy to follow.

Teaching

My classes are fun and welcoming. I teach with a sense of humor and share my joy of the craft. It is always a “judgement free zone”.

From Cornelia

I returned to knitting after a hiatus of 40 years. A friend who is a faithful member the Tuesday Stitch and Chat group encouraged me to come to the class. I did and never looked back! Pam's encouragement during those early days of learning new techniques and correcting mistakes made all the difference. Pam is always so patient and never makes anyone feel foolish when they have a basic question or a dropped stitch! From what I have observed, there is no problem she cannot correct and make good as new. This is a real gift which she so generously shares with our Tuesday group. Tuesday mornings have never been the same. I must add that the group we knit with is such a wonderful group and we share more than our knitting. We discuss books, movies, restaurants and even life experiences among other topics. Thank you, Pam, for making Tuesday mornings in Westport a highlight of my week. You are very special. ~ Cornelia

From Allison

I have taken a couple of project classes with Pam and am now a regular at Stitch and Chat. Her insights, knitting hacks and patience inspire me and have helped me grow from a "knitter" to a self-described "fiber artist". Pam's enthusiasm for the craft is infectious! ~Allison

From Kaede

I have been taking a private lessons from Pam Grushkin at the Westport Yarns. When I met her, I was a novice knitter, but with her encouragement and skilled instruction, I am proud to say I have become an intermediate level knitter in a short time. Articulate and compassionate, Pam is a kind of instructor that you can’t help to respect and adore. Encountering Pam was the best thing happened in my knitting experience. Thank you, Pam, and I am so privileged to be your pupil. ~ Kaede

From Eleanor

I just love Pam’s Tuesday Stitch & Chat class! First of all, Pam is an inspiring teacher who patiently guides us through our knitting projects and encourages us to try new yarns and patterns. She is a master knitter and designer, always working on something interesting. I don’t think there is a knitting problem Pam can’t solve or a new skill she can’t teach us. And she has the gift of making us feel like a community, having a good time, supporting and feeling supported by our knitting friends. ~ Eleanor

From Michelle

Ater relocating to CT 13 years ago and knowing no one I decided I would start knitting again. It had been a good 6-7 years since I had last knit. Little did I know that walking into the store where Pam had worked was exactly what I had needed. Pam was so easy to talk to and extremely knowledge. She helped pick the perfect "get back into knitting" project. I soon joined Pam's Stitch and Chat class and just loved everything about it. Sadly the store closed but lucky for me Pam started a weekly knitting group. The group consisted of knitters of all ages. I loved the weekly groups and did my best to not miss it. Pam is a perfect knitting instructor, she is extremely patient and a very good listener. No question was ever too big or too small to ask her. When projects I was working on needed adjustments Pam always had a solution. Thanks to Pam my knitting is better than I ever imagined and best of all I made a great friend. ~ Michelle
