I want you to enjoy crocheting! Let's smile, make jokes, and learn a new hobby together! After your initial lesson you will have a grasp on basic stitches. From there, I will help you develop your crochet skills so you can venture out and begin creating for yourself or for gifts! Nothing beats a hand-made gift!

After each lesson, I will give you a small assignment to work on that will help you develop. I will let you lead the pace. Crocheting is fun and should never be stressful!

About Melissa

I have been crocheting since I was 12 years old. Throughout the years I crocheted blankets, granny squares, Character hats, beanies, scarves, amigurumi, baby clothes, and so much more. Crocheting has been an outlet where I de-stress and unleash my creativity! I always have a can-do mind! If I can i

I offer patient guidance and encouragement. I see knitting as a process of growth and development- moving forward at a pace that the student is comfortable as we cultivate confidence and technique.

About Kim

I am a hoarder - most notably of yarn and can be seen knitting or crocheting in 90 degree weather. I began my craft journey as a child when i was taught Crochet by the other woman in my fathers life. I learned to knit later - but I would hone both these skills well into adulthood looking for a wa

I teach hand embroidery, hand sewing and machine sewing to students of all ages. Beginning students can learn hand sewing stitches that are used in conjunction with machine sewing to finish items.

Embroidery is like painting with a needle and floss. Students can learn basic embroidery stitches to use on pre-printed kits or to create their own drawings.

I teach beginning, intermediate and advanced sewing. I have been sewing since before I can remember, for over 40 years. I teach sewing after school for several local private schools and privately at home for 10 years. I also teach for the City at the Cultural Arts Center. I have been fingerprint

Tracy has been a wonderful teacher. She's extremely patient, and informative, and always accessible for questions.
Jamie Y.
I came to Tracy with some very specific questions concerning the assembly of a facing on a lapel and a slight adjustment on a sleeve sloper. She was direct and to the point and helped me with exactly what I needed. Would have no hesitation whatsoever in going to see her again with my next question. Thank you!
Lina
Very helpful. Clear explanations. And went above and beyond to make sure I understood. Thanks

My teaching style is progressive and tailored to the individual student. Each lesson builds on what was learned before. We go over games that the student has played, especially losses to higher rated players. For beginning players and juniors I teach the fundamentals and build from there. Suggested books are Comprehensive Chess Course, for beginners, and Chess The Easy Way by Reuben Fine, for more advanced players.

About Chris

I'm a patient and experienced chess teacher with 8 years of experience teaching children and adults. My teaching approach is practical and fun. We look at the chess games that you've played, and I teach the fundamentals of chess strategy and tactics based on these games. I have more than twenty

Chris is an excellent teacher and he's really helped me improve my game. In one lesson he showed me an opening that I used to win against a strong player. We go over games that I've played and he always has helpful suggestions. I highly recommend Chris as a chess teacher.

Mya is AWESOME! My 10 year old daughter is loving the lessons she has been taking it for a month now and has learned so much. I have purchased her own machine so now she is being taught with her own machine. I have signed up for more lessons, definitely worth the money.
Delma
Mya is an awesome instructor! She helped my mom sew a quilt for her great-granddaughter and then wanted to sew another for her new great-grandson but was overwhelmed and unsure how to get started. Mya was nice enough to come over and guide her through the completion. Mya is intuitive and understands right away how to explain the different quilting techniques and sewing machine use. This has brought my mother immense pleasure especially since her limited mobility and pandemic have limited her activities greatly. I will be forever grateful.
Ruth
She was very patient, professional, and knew what she was doing.
