Hi there!
I'm Maria and so glad you found me! :)
I've been crocheting for more than 5 years now, self taught. I also knit(self taught ) and have been teaching others to crochet for more than 2 years.
I have such a passion for yarn work, that I ended up opening an online shop, selling what I make. I'm a fun, kind-hearted and caring person. I'm also a parent and a part time student attempting to go into nursing school and then med school.
Nothing makes me more happy than to see a smile on people's faces.

I come from a family of women who have crocheted and knitted, so you could say it runs in my blood and family. I'm a very patient person and like to make sure those I'm teaching understand directions and instructions. If a certain way doesn't work for a person, I'm always willing to find other ways to teach.

If you don't know how to crochet and would like to learn, I hope you give me a try and I will try my very best to help you learn this beautiful and relaxing art :)

Very patient and kind and all around a great teacher. She sat with me and took the time to actually explain things to me and teach me. I love crocheting now !
