Hello! I have been crocheting for several years now. In your first lesson, I will walk students through selecting materials, learning a few basic stitches, and how to read a pattern. In your second lesson, we will begin working on a pattern from a few curated beginners patterns. In a third lesson, I will teach some additional stitches and provide an additional pattern for the student to complete.

My goal in my lessons is to teach students how to be successful in their crochet project, so they will feel prepared to take on more challenging patterns in the future. Crochet is relaxing, fun, and beautiful, and I want to inspire the same feelings when my students attend my lessons.

I have been crocheting for about 3 years, and I love to share my passion with others! I have taught several friends and family members but I joined TakeLessons to try to branch out and teach others. in my day job, I am a project coordinator for an IT company, so crochet allows a great creative

Hula hooping is a magical form of movement that is as much fun to learn as it is to watch. It is a great work out and stress relief. I have been studying hoop dance for 6 years and it is by far my favorite thing to do. I love to teach and guide others on their hoop journeys. My students experience immediate results and will build a good platform on which to build their own personal hoop flow.

About Morgan

My name is Morgan. I am a hula hoop dance performer and instructor for Spin Happy Hoop Dance in Cincinnati. I have been hula hooping since 2009 and take pleasure in sharing my art with others! I specialize in teaching both children and adults hula hoop dance. I have a ton of knowledge to share, so
