Hi! I'm a mom and former high school teacher. I enjoy cooking, crocheting, knitting, and reading. It can be relaxing to create by yourself, as well as rewarding to make something for yourself or a loved one to enjoy. Prospective students should know basic slip knot, chain and single crochet stitches for crocheting, or a cast-on method, basic knit & purl stitches for knitting. Whether you want to learn new stitches and techniques, get a little assistance reading & interpreting patterns, I can give you a lot of information, introduce you to a variety of techniques, and help you create crochet or knit art. Bring a can-do attitude and an open mind to explore your abilities and we'll have some fun knitting and crocheting together.

Barbara was prepared for all my questions. I am now starting a lap afghan, which is really what I want to make. She gave me several options on how to proceed, and I learned a lot in our first lesson! Look forward to class next week! She's an excellent teacher!
Barbara is absolutely lovely and a delight to work with. She is patient, persevering, and skilled. I am off and running on my project now and I know where to go if I run into any snags. Very happy I chose Barbara out of the bunch. 🙂
Really enjoying my lessons with Barbara. She is so patient and it helps so much that she works the project along with me.
