Teaching since:

I have been working with knitting and crochet since 2004. I am a craft yarn certified knitting and crochet instructor and have been teaching professionally since 2010. This includes locations such as Michaels Arts and Crafts as well as Bedford Stuyvesant Collegiate Charter School.

As my student, you can expect to learn basic through advanced skills crochet skills, including making a slip knot, single crochet, double crochet, triple crochet, how to make a granny square, crocheting in the round, and how to read patterns. In knitting, you will learn the skills of casting on stitches onto the needle, the garter and stockinette stitch, how to knit in the round using circular or double pointed needles, and how to read patterns.

No matter what your level, my goal is to make you feel confident and experienced enough for you to complete and create your own projects. Knitting and crochet are my passions and I am excited to help you reach your crafting goals. I look forward to working with you!

Erin is very patient and knowledgeable. I'm not new to crochet but learned by way of being shown what to do for a project. I am now learning how to read instructions and how to determine where I made my error (s) and how to correct it. I am very pleased with this instructor.

Erin was one of my trainers for an Online ESL company. She is vivacious and committed to her students. She takes time to thoroughly explain all new material. Student comments were always positive. I highly recommend Erin for anything that she teaches.
