I have been crocheting for some time now, and have done many different types of projects. I also sell scarves/hats online. I can help you with the basics of crochet to get you started on your crocheting adventures.
Hi, I'm Bri! I'm a graduate of North Central College with a BA in Music (Emphasis in Composition and Percussion) and a minor in History. I absolutely love music, every single aspect of it. I love to make music a part of everybody's lives who want and need it. I want to help you with your musical needs. I have been playing percussion for 19 years, singing for 25, and playing piano for 20 years. I was a member of a recording and performing Chicago band, Oblio and Arrow, where I provided backing vocals and helped with the song arrangements. I am currently a member of Trip City Lights, an LA local funk/soul band, where I provide lead and backing vocals. I also record vocals for different artists hooks, jingles, choruses, and songs (covers and originals). I have also composed/arranged various pieces for ensembles, bands, vocal groups, choirs,
plays, musicals, commercials, etc. I've worked with folks locally in LA, and all over the world. I love what I do!
History has always fascinated me. The way our world has developed and changed and continues to evolve is amazing. Everything can be tied back to the past, and I feel it's important to take a look back, put yourself in that time, and really study how things were to help understand why things are the way they are now.
Crocheting and knitting are a couple of good habits/hobbies I picked up about 10 years ago. I sell scarves online and I'm always working on some sort of project. I will have you knitting and pearling with the best of them!
Music, history, crochet, and knitting....I'm your girl!
I've been crocheting for 15 years and I've never had a student leave a lesson unhappy. Within the first hour or so, you'll be able to do the basics of a chain and a single crochet and as time goes on you' will be able to make almost anything and read patterns. I specialize in crochet toys, but have also made blankets, hats, booties, art installations, etc. You will require yarn and a hook for your lessons. If you wish to practice at home you can purchase both of these in most craft stores for under $5. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!
Hi! My name is Monica and I'm excited to meet you! I've been crocheting since 2000 and have loved helping my students learn a new relaxing hobby. Most of my students learn and are comfortable with the basics within the first hour. I'm a patient and kind person and my teaching style is relaxed, positive, and supportive. I look forward to getting you hooked on crochet.
From beginner to beginning expert level! Come in with no knowledge or just needing to fine tune your skills.
Located in the DC area.
I graduated from Howard University with a Bachelor in Music Education and am getting my graduate degree in Music Education from the University of Maryland. My primary instrument is clarinet and euphonium but am familiar with most instruments at a beginner to intermediate level. As a woodwind specialist, I have taught clarinet, flute and saxophone during summer camps and programs for multiple years. I'm currently the clarinet technique teacher at Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington, DC.
I have been knitting and crocheting for 12 years and have made a wide range of products from hair bows to sweaters.
I am patient and willing to teach all levels of students in a variety of subjects and am willing to cater the lessons to your needs.
Tyra is amazing. It was a bit hard to see virtually. We had to do FaceTime because your platform did not work which I believe was not a problem on my side but yours. Nonetheless I am looking forward to my next lesson. She’s a gem

Tyra is a wonderful teacher. My son (10) does lessons once per week. He has struggled in the group setting at school, but with Tyra he looks forward to his lesson every week and loves his time with her. Tyra has great methods of instruction, she knows her stuff, she's funny, kind, straightforward.

We love Tyra. She teaches in a selective high school for the arts, so is used to getting the best out of kids. And I love that she comes to our home!
I'm a former officer of the New York City Crochet Guild, and a current member of the Crochet Guild of America, a national organization dedicated specifically to crochet. I'm also a Craft Yarn Council Certified Crochet Teacher for over a decade; I earned my certificate and pin by donating hours to teach seniors. I learned the basics from my Mom, for whom I continue to crochet in her honor.
We will begin with a skills assessment and start with a basics refresher to get you back up to speed in no time, offering encouragement and lots of tips, tricks and tidbits along the way.
Crochet has come a long way baby! It's a great hand craft, good for motor skills, soothing for the soul and practical, too! Think of the one-of-a-kind gifts you could make for yourself and the special people in your lives!
Crochet is a part of my life that I enjoy doing, sharing, promoting and teaching. To the southpaws...you don't have to feel 'left' out...I can teach you :)
If you need to get back on the crochet wagon, let's refresh your skills and add some more to your arsenal!
Whether you are a beginner or looking to improve your skill, learn in a stress free, patient environment.
I have been crocheting, knitting and sewing since I was 8 years old. I studied fashion design at the Fashion Institute of Technology and design knitted, crochet and sewing garment.
Over the years I have taught adults and children and currently teach at an after-school program. Previously, I taught both group and private lessons at my yarn Slip Stitch Needlecraft. My years of teaching has give me insight on different learning styles, and adapt my lesson to each student so that they can learn in and enjoyable, stress-free manner.
Great crochet lesson from Claudette. I wanted more info on design and the lesson was tailored around specifics that I needed to help me design new garments and also improve my existing designs. Claudette is very friend and personable and hugely knowledgeable on crochet!

Claudette has a vast wealth of knowledge in crochet, knitting. and garment design and is able to teach at all skill levels, from beginners to advanced. As a fellow teacher, I've learned from her as well.

So patient and very nice. Hands on. And the i aslo learned about the history of yarn and the varous kinds. I would highly recommend.
My youth was spent in Eastern Europe which meant cold winters. With that came mom’s teaching on how to make a scarf, a blanket, socks and sweaters. Though nowadays it may be counterproductive to knit, there is no better way to show someone you love than something that is handmade by you. I’ll teach you what it takes to get started. Book your sessions now and let’s start crocheting.
Before reading about me, I'd like to share up front the honor that my newest student, R., has brought to me by choosing to learn Romanian. Nothing special so far except that he is 100 years old!!!! Yes, you read that correctly: a century old. He is the outmost inspiring person in my life by teaching me that age is just a number and that learning can happen any day if we choose so. R is a medical doctor, a psychologist, a chemist and biologist. Words can't even define how great of a man he is and how grateful I am to learn from him, too. For instance, about a famous language called "esperanto", a language created in the late 19th century.
I'm an enthusiastic learner even after 19 years of formal education (two Masters, one Bachelor) earned on two continents continued by US military education in various forms, and formally tested studen
t who needed to document skills that were not formally captured on paper (like the foreign languages I know).
I love interacting with people and pass on my knowledge from five visited continents, instill love for learning and continuous curiosity for any subject out there. Nothing is impossible when you set your mind to it. Failing once doesn't mean that you'll never win (proof in my athletic years and life ever since); determination, hard work, self-motivation and a good supporting system can bring to reality even the most insignificant dreams that we believe may not come true, and especially those in which we passionately trust.
I believe in breaking down a goal into objectives, assigning tasks to each one of them, and then sticking to achieve them.
I'm a Certified Instructor with the Department of Homeland Security. My hobbies include practicing foreign languages (and proper grammar rules which highly reflect on one's education) by speaking them, learning about cultures and slangs, etymology, watching foreign movies, traveling internationally, taking photos, reading (a lot), carefully planning with room for error and impulsive decisions (to take the boredom out of things), meeting with life long friends, drawing, painting, and spending time outdoors for inspiration and health.
I'm elated at the opportunity of brainstorming with you and giving you tools to be an independent learner.
Sharing my passion! I have been crocheting for 4 decades and I want to share this amazing art form with you! I have taught individuals from 6 years old and up, beginner to intermediate. Learn at your pace. Once you have gained the basics, there is no limit to the beautiful, quirky, and amazing things you will be able to create.
I am more than a crochet instructor, I am a self-professed craft-aholic. If there is a creative process, I am ready to try it. Even more than doing, I love sharing the skills I have learned.
If you have never held a hook or a skein of yarn before, or even if you have and didn't feel you were successful, I believe I can teach you this craft. There are basic skills you need to learn, but there are many ways they can be taught. If you have struggled in the past, we can try it a different way.
I believe everyone needs a creative outlet. I would love to be the one to help you find yours.
I keep it simple. Instead of hammering you with words you do not understand. I show you the way I learned how to crochet. I start off small and basically learn my way as I continue to crochet. I am still learning but I had to start somewhere.
I am a military veteran that love arts and crafts. I enjoy learning how to do different things like crocheting, making jewelry, drawing, learning foreign languages. I love to try anything when it comes to something I never considered learning how to do. Crocheting took over me and I stay on YouTube trying to better my craft.
