About the Instructor:
I learned to crochet when I was 12 years old. My next door neighbor would always sit on the front porch and work on projects. I guess I “bothered” her enough until she decided to teach me. My first big project was an afghan for my grandmother’s 75thbirthday. I have crocheted countless items in the time since.
Knitting came into my life about a dozen years ago. I was managing the classroom in a major craft store and the knitting instructor had to do a knitting demonstration that seemed too complex for the time we had available, so I asked her to teach me to knit instead. So, in front of many customers passing by, I learned how to knit.
Since learning how to work with yarn, I have been creating projects for myself and others. I met the owner of a local yarn shop, A Garden of Yarn, and became the contracted knit and crochet instructor for the store. That was at least 10 years ago. I love to teach others new crafts and enjoy seeing the happiness when they succeed.
