Ready to learn crochet, want to brush up on some forgotten skills, or just need help with a project? I have been crocheting since i was 9 years old and teaching all ages for nearly 15 years and would love to get your (yarn) ball rolling! Specializing in pattern reading and writing, troubleshooting, improvisation, and more. No question is too big or too small! I believe that crochet is easier to pick up than knitting, so this is a great place to start for kids or first time yarn crafters and I encourage anyone to learn crochet as well if they want to pick up knitting someday.

About Elizabeth S.

Hi there! My name is Elizabeth and I was 9 years old when my grandma taught me how to crochet - and I've been writing patterns and making custom creations ever since. With over 10,000 downloads of my published knitting patterns and a flawless five-star rating I'm sure I can find a solution to what ails your knitting or crocheting! Aside from the fiber arts I love to hike, dirtbike, snowboard, bake, and practice yoga. I'm published author, accomplished musician, and certified crochet and knitting instructor, but most importantly I am a full-time stay at home mom! I also consult part-time as an administrator in civil aviation.

Elizabeth is extremely patient and thorough. She made sure I understood each stitch she taught me. I came to the first class frustrated by trying to be self-taught. By the end of class I was excited about my project again. I look forward to finishing the blanket I’m working on so she can teach me to do another.

After just one lesson I went from being a frustrated knot maker to a happy knitter. Elizabeth offered me simple but incredibly practical guidance that immediately improved my self-taught (terrible) knitting.

Elizabeth was a great teacher, very patient with my 7 year old. Flexible in teaching whatever we were looking for, which was the basics. Sent videos and material suggestions as well. Would recommend.

I reached out to Elizabeth to help me with an afghan pattern that used a graph instead of written instructions (which I had never done before) and she explained everything super clearly. She even helped me modify the pattern to be exactly how I wanted it. She cleared up some confusion I had on how to work with it and gave me some really helpful tips! Thanks again Elizabeth!

This was a 2 person class we had set up ( friends wanting to have class together) w/ Elizabeth.
I cant speak enough of how informative Elizabeth was prior to class & during class. Elizabeth is very friendly and easy to talk to, explained each step & stayed at our pace ....very patient & flexible with her schedule.
We had our 2nd lesson and she was even more helpful with our many questions and critiquing our work. Can't wait to finish our project and have a third class.

I needed help starting a project called Winter Pillow using Judy’s Magic Loop. I had viewed many YouTube videos on the subject that were only partially helpful. Elizabeth got me on the right track with the project and provided extra tips to use as worked through the rest of the pillow. She was also very accommodating with scheduling.

Elizabeth is an awesome teacher! Prior to taking the class I spent 4 hours trying to learn how to knit through youtube and could not figure it out. In my first class Elizabeth taught me how to cast on, knit stich, and pearl stitch! I really enjoyed her class and will definitely be taking another one. Thank you! Also, she is great to talk to.

Elizabeth was very helpful and went above and beyond to modify a pattern I was struggling with to make it something in my skill level. Would definitely have another lesson with her when I need help!
