Building Community By Teaching and Inspiring Others

Feb 24, 2018

I spend many days and hours at home crafting, crocheting, painting, and creating music. I have a true love for the arts! I found out that there are many people interested in crocheting, but they didn't know how to, or where to start. While riding the bus or train to different places, as well as into work each day, I enjoy the long ride by working on my crochet projects. There was always someone complimenting me on my work and saying how they wished they knew how to crochet because it looks so relaxing. I would always offer to teach them because it's something that I enjoy doing.
