Meet Penelope, a wonderful crochet teacher that has joined our teaching staff. Penelope also offers private crochet lessons.
Penelope’s grandmother (Yiayia) crocheted every day and taught her how to crochet when she was young. Three years ago, Penelope was given her Yiayia’s crochet hooks by her aunt. With these “Yiayia’s Hooks,” she renewed her interest in yarn art. Crocheting has become like meditating for her - a great way to relax. Now that her sons are both away at college, she has found time to crochet with the slower pace of life at home. Penelope enjoys making gifts for friends and family, and is especially fond of making shawls. She enjoys challenging herself with new crochet techniques and stitches.
Penelope is an early childhood special education teacher. Her goal in teaching crochet is to make it easy and accessible and hopes others will find the same joy, relaxation and fulfillment from crocheting as she does
