Who am I?

My face

First things first: in case you’re wondering about my weirdly spelled name (it’s French!), you can pronounce it like ‘Gail😉

I’ve been teaching crochet since 2014.

It all started quite by chance, when my local library ran a craft group and I was asked to teach others to crochet.

I quickly realised that knowing how to do something and knowing how to teach it were two very different skills!

Why? Because you need to totally deconstruct what you know in order to not just show how to do things, but also put it into words, as well as being able to spot and troubleshoot mistakes.

Now I’m known for demonstrating crochet techniques in a super easy way. I also make sure to give feedback to my students every step of the way, so that they know where they may be going wrong and how they can make things easier for themselves, giving them the confidence they need to tackle projects on their own!

Some of the lovely things my students have to say about working with me

Testing the Sophie Twirl Raglan pattern

When was the last time you did something for the first time ever? This summer I volunteered to join the testing team for Amber Zumbrun’s latest crochet design. It was actually a double first for me: I had never done pattern testing for a designer, AND I had never made crocheted clothes where fit...
