About the Tutor:

"I have been crocheting for some time now, which has taken over my knitting!! Starting with the obvious – granny square blanket and scarf,  and kept on advancing by challenging myself. I went to a crochet class locally to learn how to read patterns and I have never looked back- creating my own patterns and making items that I thought I would never do. I do also make items for charity and for friends and family. Crocheting is so diverse these days-  I am always learning myself! By sharing my knowledge will help you to create beautiful projects for your family and friends and also you too can share to keep crocheting alive!" Caren
