Private Crocheting Teacher

I'm a Home Economics teacher with 30 years crochet experience. I have skills and strong foundation in handicrafts and specialize in fundamentals of crochet. I typically use inspirational ideas around me and modify them according to my students' needs. I structure my lessons in a way the students will learn what they want to learn without feeling bored.

I'm available for eager students of all ages and experience levels. I would love to work with you and help you learn to master the basics of this needlework. I will also help you build a crochet portfolio that you can use any time as a quick reference guide (and inspiration as well) so you can comfortably make your very own DIY crochet projects!

Loudel was such a patient teacher when I was learning Tagalog. She catered her lessons to me, as she was aware that I grew up with tagalog speaking parents. In addition, growing up as a Filipino-American, she provided me with a short history lesson in the beginning to help me understand how the language was derived. I really appreciated this! Loudel is also patient and sends you lessons and documents to use and practice with! I would recommend Loudel to anyone who is trying to learn Tagalog!
Abigail Villagomez
Loudel does an amazing job of helping me understand the lessons. I've only started recently but I really enjoy learning with her and she is definitely helping me understand the language better!

Loudel was a pleasure to work with. She was very patient, helpful and knowledgeable about crochet. I would definitely book with her again!!

I've been teaching Crocheting for 10 years and my students have gone on to make things as small as bracelets to something as unique as jumping rope. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to make a pencil pouch and as time goes on you'll be able to make your own blankets. I specialize in making gift like ornaments to winter apparel, typically use patterns from books and online, and have the 22 different crochet hooks and yarn available for your lessons. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I'm not completely new to crocheting but I ran into a pattern that didn't seem to be working up correctly. Salma worked through the beginning with me so we could compare outcomes and talk through next steps. That gave me the confidence to go on, and I'm now half way done with a warm shawl that will keep the winter chill away on days when I have to go into the office.

I have a LOT of patience! All you need is the desire to learn to crochet. If you never have crocheted before, I will get you crocheting. If you want to learn, but believe you can’t learn because someone told you can’t learn to crochet, I will prove that you can crochet. If you have crocheted a long time ago, but forgot all of it or most of it, I will bring it back to you. If you already know the basics of crocheting, but don’t know how to get beyond the granny square, I can get you to the next level. If you know crocheting basics, but gave up because you make a lot of mistakes, I will show you tricks to avoid them and show you how to read your work so that mistakes are found sooner rather than later. If you know the basics, but want to learn a different technique such as color work, post stitches, or more, I can teach you. Do you have trouble reading patterns or charts, I can take the mystery out of them.

Because of COVID-19, I only teach online for now. I use Zoom for my teaching ...

I have to update my review now that I've had a bunch of lessons with Amy. People who can do something well and also teach well are rare and Amy is one of those. Before I started with her, I had been doing crochet using YouTube and had taken a couple of local classes. I was pulling things out and starting over frequently because i'd realize i didn't understand/had totally missed something, which was getting frustrating. Even in the live classes the teachers were nice and skilled but they didn't take the time to make sure we understood certain fundamental facts about crochet and what we were doing, focusing more on just getting it done. Amy makes a point of expressing the basic things one needs to know about the stitches we are doing, as much as helping me get the final result.

I looked up online lessons because the quarantine had started and I had purchased a sweater pattern that I really wanted to make, and thought i should be able to accomplish. Many people on Ravelry had complained about the pattern's shortcomings -- some had given up on it, though the people that did complete it, had great results - over 95 people posted pictures of their results, though some aren't quite like the advertised picture. I really wanted to make that sweater though, so I thought it was time to get some real lessons, and found Amy. The way she talked me through the pattern and other patterns, I totally got how to look at patterns and think about them. She lets you know her thought process so you can think it through yourself. Now, when i rip something out to do something over, it's not because i don't know what i'm doing so much as i now know what i'm trying to accomplish. The sweater is almost done and btw, looks just like the picture!! I've realized that it's a great idea to tell Amy whatever i'm thinking and she will give the best advice. Oh, and from the first lesson, she got me getting straight edges easily (now, it makes so much sense but at the time it seemed like a fluke whenever i had a straight edge!)
Barbara N.
Amy is a very experienced knitter which is what I am looking for. She is patient and answers questions so I can understand. She lets me choose my projects and encourages me to tackle harder patterns. Most important to me is I can call her during the week and ask for help when I need it and don't have to wait until class.
Scarlet
Awesome 1st lesson, Amy is a fount (font?) of information, I can't wait for the next lesson!

I'm enjoying my classes. I've been bringing Rhiannon stitches I want to learn without any notice, and she is always able to help me on the spot to learn them. Her flexibility (both in what I want to learn and in scheduling) makes private classes a pleasant and worthwhile investment. Highly recommend!

Private Crocheting Lessons Near You

The word crochet comes from a French word of the same spelling that means small hook, and the crochet needle does, in fact, resemble a little hook. Crochet needles are used to hook yarn to craft different textiles from interlocking loops (stitches).

While it's most common to crochet using yarn, you can actually use any long, skinny, and pliable material, such as string, tinsel, or even cooked noodles if you're inclined to play with food. Using the art of crochet, you make blankets, socks, sweaters, scarves, mittens, dish towels, tea cozies, and more! Your imagination's the limit!

Why Learn to Crochet?

Crochet is a very fun pastime. You can join a crochet group to socialize and make new friends. You'll enjoy making beautiful creations to enjoy yourself or to give away as heartfelt gifts. You'll also find that crochet is a great way to keep your hands and mind busy, helping you avoid other habitual behaviors, like snacking when you're on a diet or even smoking if you're trying to quit. 

Crochet's also great for your brain and body. It helps your mind and neural pathways stay strong and active to prevent age-related memory loss and cognitive decline. It improves creativity and your ability to focus. It's also deeply relaxing, helping to relieve both mental and physical stress. Plus, when you learn to crochet with a private teacher, you'll avoid all the unnecessary frustration of trying to teach yourself!

The Best Way to Learn to Crochet and What You'll Practice in Lessons

Sure, you can find lots of free crocheting lessons and tutorials online, but the best way to learn is with a private crocheting teacher. In private lessons, you'll receive your teacher's undivided attention and the sort of personalized instruction that simply isn't available in online videos or a larger class setting. With immediate feedback, you'll improve quickly, while you focus on the types of crochet projects and designs that interest you most. 

Plus, every private lesson is different. Teachers fully customize courses, while keeping in mind the student's goals, interests, existing knowledge, and preferred learning styles. For example, crocheting classes for adults differ from crocheting lessons for children in terms of course content and teaching methods. Your teacher will keep you motivated and interested while you learn to crochet at a pace that's comfortable for you. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Crocheting

If you've never crocheted before or only have a little experience, then beginner lessons are for you. In these lessons, your crocheting tutor will introduce you to all the fundamental skills you need to get started creating some basic crochet projects. In beginner lessons, your teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Match needle size with yarn weight
  • How to hold a crochet needle
  • Get started with a slip knot
  • Learn the basic stitches (chain stitch, slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, and treble crochet)

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Crocheting

If you have some experience crocheting and are familiar with some of the more common stitches, then intermediate lessons are for you. In these classes, you'll be introduced to some more challenging stitches and patterns, as you apply these new techniques to increasingly difficult projects. Your teacher might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Practice reading crochet patterns
  • Learn to make a granny square
  • Crocheting blankets with row systems
  • Count your stitches like a pro

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Crocheting

If you know your way around a crochet hook and ball of yarn, then advanced lessons are for you. In these classes, you'll have the opportunity to take your crochet skills to the next level, while working with a professional. Subjects taught in advanced crochet lessons depend on the student's individual interests and goals, but your teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Learn to design your own patterns and unique creations
  • Create multi-piece designs
  • Turn craft to art by thinking about composition, color theory, and meaning
  • Making a business of crochet (how to share, sell, and market your patterns and creations)

How to Find a Crocheting Teacher Near You

When you sign up for lessons with a private crocheting tutor, you'll learn to make beautiful, snuggly creations from simple skeins of yarn. Luckily, finding a private teacher on TakeLessons is easy. A quick search will direct you to a list of experienced, qualified teachers who offer lessons online and in-person to students of all ages and abilities. Before choosing a teacher, we recommend browsing several profiles and reading reviews left by other aspiring yarn artists. 

The cost of crocheting classes varies, but most teachers base their rates on the length and frequency of lessons. With so many tutors to choose from, you'll have no problem finding one who fits your budget and schedule. Plus, you'll find that investing in private lessons pays off fast, as you pick up new techniques, gain speed and skill, and learn to make beautifully crocheted pieces after just a few lessons!
