1 hr crochet lesson

5


5 per hour

Working with yarn is a great stress reducer! Learn a new skill and keep warm too! I can teach you crochet, including how to read a pattern, basic and intermediate stitches, and pattern and yarn selection. I find that this service is best provided in person, as I can correct your form and demonstrate stitches to you more easily. I have yarn and hooks to teach with so it is not necessary to bring your own unless you have a specific project in mind. I have patterns too if you're looking for inspiration. I can help you if you run into problems, or teach you from scratch if you like. I'm very patient and I love teaching people. You can come to my house, or we can meet somewhere public if you prefer. I prefer NOT driving into Philadelphia as heavy traffic makes me nervous.

Training & Qualifications


I have been crocheting ever since I was little, and I have made several projects. I have made hats, scarves, blankets, and even a sweater once (see pic). I consider myself an intermediate crocheter as there is always more to learn, but I can do single crochet, double crochet, triple crochet, half double crochet, increasing and decreasing stitches and more. My grandmother taught me classic crochet technique and I aspire to one day be able to crochet without looking at my work like she could. (I'm almost there) I am a member of a casual group that meets twice a month for knitting and crocheting (and snacking and drinking and joking around) and I'm always looking for people who love working with yarn.

Availability & Preferences


I am usually free during the day and late evenings, but my schedule changes a lot. Let's chat and maybe we can find a time that works for both of us.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Kelly was kind enough to experiement with gluten free bread making for me. It was delivered warm, and it's been over ten years since I tasted fresh-b...aked bread straight from the oven! My kids (who are gluten intolerant) didn't even know bread could be soft and warm! I am thrilled with bread and Kelly's willingness to adapt her service for me!show more

I believe a new system that fosters cooperation is needed to counteract the negative forces instigating violence and fear today. I believe the competitive quest for money is killing humanity.

About Kelly Tamburello DVM

I am a retired veterinarian, with 6 years experience. I graduated from the University of Illinois in 2000. I used to enjoy surgery and animal behavior work the best. I retired in 2006 to become a mo...ther of 2. I currently have 14 years experience at that and counting. I crochet at an intermediate level. I am a very neat and precise cross stitcher even if I'm not very fast. I can do basic mending by hand. . I garden at a beginner level. I volunteer at my church's donation garden. I read extensively, particularly fantasy and fiction. Lately I've been reading a lot of non-fiction about progressive topics. My hobbies are organic gardening, sewing and crafts, themed kids parties, environmental activism, animal and human rights, and baking bread. I have been a Girl Scout leader and continue to assist with the area service unit. I am involved in Transition, Food and Water Watch, The Green Party, and the ELCA women's group at my church. I am home alone most days during the school day and busy as all get out at night and on weekends running mom's taxi service to after school activities. I am working on developing my computer skills and I'm interested in becoming proficient in database use, and using a Mac. I like to go camping when the weather is nice and walking (not running) outside when I can. I have an analytical mind and I love working on complex problems, particularly in my areas of interest. show more
