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!
