My name is Ron. Last year my 10 y/o twins took weekly origami lessons from Haggit for a period of 6 months. They are both doing origami diligently since then, and proudly teach origamo to their classmates. Origami became a fun family activity in our house.
In march 2019 they invited their friends to celebrate an Origami birthday party. Haggit taught the guests how to fold several models. The children had a great time. They were all talking about their experience the following day at school. I highly recommend Haggit for teaching and leaading Origami parties

I love...love...love crocheting. It's so much fun and a relaxing creative time. I have been crocheting since I was 9 years old. I am left-handed. I started out making chains. My mother taught me a few stitches like granny squares and octagons. And then I began teaching myself to read the patterns. I have been reading patterns for over 10 years now. I would love to share my love of this craft with you. Contact me and let's get started!

My mom taught me origami when I was little; during the communism we did not have much to play with but our imagination was growing wild. So, just like in the kitchen when few ingredients can make good food, the same crafts can be done with whatever is handy around the house.

Note: My favorite project is the carton doll that has a dozen colorful dresses in her wardrobe.

About Isabela

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 teachin

"Edward and I had a horrible time trying to connect via the Take Lessons interface. I could see and hear him but he couldn't hear me. This being interactive doesn't work. We futzed with it for about 20 minutes and then went to Skype, which worked perfectly. Take Lessons needs to get their act together on their interface.

Once connected via Skype, we had an almost instant "buddy" connection. Eddie is really pleasant and very good at working with what you have, which in my case is not much. We spent the first ten or so minutes with me hitting simple shots with the cue ball only so he could study my "technique." He immediate spotted about three flaws and we spent the next thirty or so minutes working on grip, alignment, open and closed bridge (left hand use for a right hander) and ball striking for an on line shot. From there he had me shooting a simple cut shot explaining how to aim it, hit the spot and pocket the ball. I must have hit that shot for him 30 times with only ONE miss. The whole time he was giving me feedback on minor corrections and positive reenforcement when I got something right. We finished the hour with him giving me practice instructions for the next week and a brief conversation about sticks and tips. It turns out I lucked out and bought what he called "an excellent entry stick".

I played a match with a friend right after the lesson and applied what Eddie had given me in our lesson. I made a lot of shots I would normally not have expected to make utilizing Eddies instruction. I still lost the match (my friend is highly advanced) but gave him more of a game than normal, and won two out of five. I'm very pleased."
