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!

Have you ever taken a lesson and the teacher move on before you fully understood? I have been teaching crochet for over 15 years and I know all the signs of a confused student and I know how to help. I don't just teach you how to crochet the stitches, but I give you ideas of what to make. My students love to make fun, quick, and easier crochet items that they can share with their loved ones.
I have crochet array of crochet stitches. I am great at explaining things so that anyone can understand. I have taught middle math for 6 years, so I know how to keep it simple but entertaining.
You bring the materials (I can help you find if needed) and I bring the help, knowledge, and confidence. By the end of the lesson, you will have a clearer understanding of your project and confidence to finish and share with the world.
I am available to do lesson in-person, in my home, or online. In-person lessons should be 90 minutes long and believe me once you get going you would not want to stop.
