I have taught in small groups and with individuals. I have even taught over the phone...before FaceTime. I can teach beginners that will help them with their confidence in learning this new skill. What sets me apart is my personality. I learned in an unusual way and I share that with my students. I have found sharing my path will show my students they can learn too.

About Carrie

I look forward to teaching you how to crochet. I love the art and have been sharing it with my family and friends for years. It’s a relaxing skill that makes up for a hard day sometimes. It’s also fun to. You will learn that there are patterns and then there’s inspiration. I can’t wait to meet you
