Hello, to all and thank you for viewing my profile. My name is Brandy. I love to sew and crochet. My all time favorite past time is crocheting challenging patterns. I love to draft patterns for clothes, mainly skirts because they are wonderfully feminine. I learned to crochet when I was 6 or 7 years old. I was taught by my grandmother who loved to make blankets. I have an extensive knowledge of crocheting because after my grandmother taught me I pursued crocheting with all of my being. I can read patterns, adjust patterns to include new and or different stitches, create basic patterns. I am learning to read tatting and Tunisian crochet patterns. I taught crochet classes in an after school program from k-8th. I utilize my vast collection of patterns and books to teach according to how the individual learns. I usually start by laying out basic information and then tailoring it according to your understanding of the information. We can go as fast or as slow as you want and I'll tailor the lessons based off what you want to learn how to do. So if, for example, you're interested in making clothing, I can tailor the lessons to focus on clothing and help you develop the clothing utilizing a crochet technique. I also indulge in other needle arts such as embroidery, knitting, hand sewing, stenciling and fabric painting.

Needlework

I have been crocheting since I was 6 years old. I currently sale my crochet locally. I have taught crochet classes to children k-8th grade as part of after school care program. I have advanced crochet skills and can crochet anything from a pattern. I am knowledgeable in reading patterns and changing patterns to incorporate new stitches. I can also work with multiple colors and sizes in the same pattern. I can also include other mediums into my design such as embroidery, painting, hand sewing, tatting, knitting, and fabric manipulation. And anything techniques that are related to this subject matter that I don't know I am willing to learn (because I love to learn and I learn through teaching others).
