I have been an avid crocheter for the last decade, designing my own patterns often and teaching kids ages 5-18 in person crochet classes for the last 7 years with over 250 students learning to crochet. I am a published crochet author on Amazon, Etsy, and Ravelry. My passion lies in teaching other this wonderful craft which has brought me so much stress relief and joy!
Crochet is hard and usually frustrating in the beginning. I empathize with students and help them make light of it, often telling them frustration means they are doing it right or if you feel like you need to have 8 arms like an octopus you’re on the right track. Learning new things take time and practice. Students should expect to spend at least 20 minutes a day at least 4 days a week practicing. I encourage students to get through the difficult part and find the joy in fiber arts. I have had many students tell me thank you for not letting them give up, often these are the students who have stuck with the craft to the advanced levels.
