Crochet and Knitting Instruction


Classes in Northern Virginia/Washington DC

crochetclass websizeGeneral Information

In my home Northern Virginia/Washington DC area, I regularly teach beginning and intermediate crochet throughout the year, so there's always a class going on.  These are group sessions. See below for dates/times.

I also offer private lessons for those who want them. Less regularly, I offer occasional classes in continental knitting; special weekend courses, and workshops.  These will be announced on this page. 

Classes are currently being held at Knox Presbyterian Church, 7416 Arlington Boulevard (corner of Allen Street and Rte 50), Falls Church. The church is on the opposite side of Rte 50 from Loehmann's Plaza.  There’s a big parking lot in back of the church; enter by the ground-level door facing the parking lot.


Cost:  $80 in advance for four class sessions (cash or check at first session please).  When you pay, you have 8 weeks from the date of payment to complete four class sessions without forfeiting a class.  Once you have attended four within that 8-week window, you pay for another four. Once the 8 weeks passes you will then owe a new four-week fee (again, with 8 weeks to use it).  This plan is fashioned to help alleviate the problem of forfeited lessons when you have to miss a class or two due to other activities. Hope youi'll like the flexibility. 

Here are the dates for my sessions going forward: 


Beginning/Intermediate Crochet Classes -  TUESDAYS 10:30 - AM - 12:30 PM  

New students may start at any point.  Beginners please bring one ball or skein of smooth worsted weight yarn in a light or bright color; a crochet hook (size I-9, or 5.5mm; small scissors, a ruler; and locking stitch markers.

$80 for any four sessions attended within 8 weeks (details above).  Current dates are: 

     January 2, 9, 16, 23  [no class Jan. 30)

     February 6, 13, 20, 27

     March 6, 13, 20, 27

     April 3, 10, 17, 24


 Private Lessons

Just want a refresher?  Need help with a specific project?  Or don't feel like a group just yet?   I can offer private sessions by mutual agreement.  $35 per hour.
