Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
Individual or group lessons are offered in our shop or your requested location. Prefer "G" or "J" size hook for beginners. You will also need to supply a starter skein or yarn (your choice) for your beginners lesson or project.

I'm used to individual or group lessons and most beginner lesson projects requested is a simple scarf.

I love teaching crochet to others. It is the one fiber art that fun and produces fast results!

I'm multi-media artist who offers various pottery, painting, fiber art (fiber processing, various types of felting, natural dyeing, yarn making, rug making, sewing, crocheting, knitting) jewelry, candles, and soap making and canning workshops in my art studio. We also have an onsite mini farm with llamas, alpacas, sheep and peacocks. We shear our animals annually and use our processed fiber in our workshops. Students learn the ancient traditions of naturally dyeing fiber with local plants and how to spin into art yarn with spindles.
