Meet our instructors

Deborah Stillwell

Founder

I knitted my first sweater in the fifth grade and continued on-and-off until my youngest daughter asked me to teach her. One thing led to another, Knit and Crochet Tennessee was created in 2009 and I’ve been organizing events, classes and donations for KCTN ever since.  I started crocheting in 2011 when I realized that it provides certain looks and techniques that knitting cannot.  I love them both!

Instructor & Vendor Relations

I have been crocheting as a full-fledged hobby since 2006. I learned to crochet as a child from my mother, but didn’t commit to the craft until I met my husband. I wanted to make him something to keep him warm as we were long distance dating at the time. My local Michaels held a crochet workshop and afterwards I was unstoppable. I learned to knit in 2009 as a result of having knitter friends who were relentless in their pursuit to make me a knitter. I’m glad I learned because it has made me a respecter and lover of all yarn crafting. Since my first scarf, I have enjoyed making projects for charity, gifts, myself, and my family. There’s just something special about making something for someone that will be beautiful, functional, and a symbol of your regard for them. As an instructor at the Big Stitch, I have enjoyed seeing students “get it” while learning new techniques, getting tips, and some learning for the very first time. My hope is that everyone who wants to learn will leave my class getting what they came for and then some. If I can offer any advice, it is to be patient with yourself. Keep at it, get help when you need it, and you will succeed.
