Are you a beginner who has never touched a hook or do you need help following a pattern? Do you need help finishing a project? Do you want to make gifts or special things for yourself? Have you seen a project on Ravelry or Pinterest that you just love but are afraid it is beyond your skill level? Don't worry, you can call on me anytime to get you through a tough spot. I will even help you find, fix and prevent mistakes. Crochet with confidence.

Work on a project of your choice or I will help you find something you will like. Be inspired, improve your skills and learn to read patterns.

I am familiar with every crochet technique. If you find something I do not know, I will master it before your lesson (except Freeform.) I am also a Published Designer, CYC Certified instructor, over 9 years teaching experience.

Students are expected to provide all tools and materials but I will help you find what you need for your project. Recommended duration for in-person lessons is 90 ...

About Kim
For creative people and makers, crafting is like going to the gym. You will find great fulfillment and a sense of accomplishment if you set aside time on a regular basis to nurture this very important part of what makes you who you are. Think of me like a personal trainer. I will encourage and inspire you while you develop your skills and express yourself through a variety of textile based media.

Private and group lessons or classes are provided in locations around the NYC area, in my space or via webcam. My focus is on providing an entertaining, relaxing and enjoyable experience as you learn a leisure time activity. I am extremely patient and detail oriented. When you let me know what you would like to learn or make, I will guide you through everything from selecting materials to fine tuning your technique. Take a lesson with me to fi
nd out why my students love me.

Teaching is a wonderful extension of my work as a professional crochet and knit designer and technical editor. A web search will reveal some of my published work over the last decade. As a craft teacher in the NYC area for over 8 years, I have worked with individuals, groups and classes of all ages and skill levels. Most of my experience focuses on working with older adults and people with special needs. Minors must have a supervising adult present. I do not work with groups of young children.

I have studied the history and mastered the skills to make and teach a vast variety of textile techniques. Please see my experience.

If you are using this site without the assistance of a TL Rep, I recommend the schedule as you go option. I often have openings in my calendar sooner than the site allows. After we make contact, we can choose the best date and time.

*** Lesson Details ***
Please let me know what you would like to learn or make before your lesson so that we may be fully prepared with any materials, tools, equipment, books or handouts. Students are expected to provide all their own tools and materials unless other arrangements are made.

Recommended duration for in-person lessons is 90 minutes. A surcharge may be added for travel outside of areas accessible by one MTA fare or expected travel time exceeding 90 minutes.

*** Specialties ***
Textile based crafts including crochet, knitting, embroidery, sewing, patchwork, plastic canvas, needlepoint, counted cross stitch, bobbin lace, historic textile and costume conservation and storage, and more.

I also love to research and develop craft projects for classes or master techniques students would like to learn.

I had an awesome learning experience with Karen. She is patient and knowledgeable and I definitely knew how to crochet when I left after just one lesson. She showed me how to make a scarf and showed me how I can take those stitches and make a blanket. She taught me how to read the symbols and patterns and I can crochet!!!

I have been teaching crochet since 2013, with levels ranging from beginner to advanced. I can teach students the basic stitches to some of my favorite, more advanced techniques, including crocheting in the round, charts, lace, and colorwork.

About Rhiannon
My name is Rhiannon and I am a third generation crafter. Originally I went to school for art history, all the while crafting. Eventually I had enough of studying other people's work and instead wanted to make my own and empower others to do the same.

I consider myself to be the "Swiss Army Knife" of crafters. I have delved into nearly every craft and love passing this knowledge onto my students. For these reasons I have a diverse range of crafts I can teach, including: knitting, crochet, embroidery, hairpin lace, needle felting, and shuttle tatting. In addition to my passion for a variety of crafts, I also love teaching a variety of skill levels, from students beginning their first stitch to someone who wants to redesign a pattern.

With a positive attitude and a willingness to learn I can teach you any of a variety of crafts.

Myself and a co-worker spent 3 lunch hours with Rhiannon learning the basics of crochet. Rhiannon taught us the various stitches and patiently worked with us until we were comfortable with each one. She also directed us to an online resource to support her instruction that we could refer to as needed. This was our first online lesson of any kind and we were extremely happy with what we learned and the convenience of learning it online. Thank you Rhiannon. :)

Simple visual and vocal instructions, chart reading, decoding patterns, and stitch assessment tutoring.

About JESSICA
Having spent my entire (short) life in choirs, music classes, and private lessons, I learned one thing to enforce above all else: it’s okay to be wrong. You’ll hit wrong notes, your fingers will slip, you’ll need to work on posture. And that’s okay. I was privately trained in the Belle Canto style for 10 years, but to this day I forget to breathe properly. It’s not the end of anything. It’s rarely even the end of the song.

I’ve coached professional and amateur singers for 3 years, coached diction and pronunciation for 4, and worked for a local opera company for the past 4 years as well. If it’s something you choose to do, I’m prepared to instruct proper technique as applied to a multitude of languages.

But above all, I strive for you to be comfortable and happy with your instruction. Music is for the soul. It should never make you fee
l worse to make it.

I see hobbies as a way to relieve stress , meditate and spend some quality personal time alone or with friends/family.

Crocheting and even knitting can be very therapeutic if you love seeing things you create come to life.
It's also satisfying and brings with it a sort of pride from seeing a project through.

About SUNESIS
For as long as I can remember, friends and family have always described me as the girl with a book 📖 in her hands because I am almost always reading something. I love to read and write (creatively and even academically). My nieces and nephew started reading ahead of their class because of all the time we spent reading and learning words and sounds together. It’s always exciting to learn new things and open up yourself to a world of possibilities through books and other written materials.

I write poetry, manage my growing blog and crochet /Knit also. I try to reach myself something new as often as I can and hopefully we will be learning together.

I've been crocheting for 5 years now, there isn't much I don't know about the crochet world, this is what I love to teach, I try to teach in a fun and encouraging way, I offer group sessions for those who want to get out the house and enjoy some adult conversation (the parents know what I'm talking about) not only do I teach a skill that can save you money but I also teach a skill that can earn you money. Those who join my class whether it be online or in my group sessions, will get a copy of my lesson plan and will be able to track their progress. Come craft with me!

About Karen
Hi everyone! My name is Karen, and have been teaching for four years, I'm a strong believer in teaching a student at their own pace. You can't rush learning! I started crocheting at first as a hobby, but now it's how I make a living. I recently became a mother and I know how hard it is to get out of the house, so I host group sessions twice a week, mothers and fathers are welcome to bring their childern. I do online teaching for students 10 and up and for those with special needs. I believe crocheting should bring people together, there is nothing more satisfying than making something with love stitch by stitch!
