I’m so thrilled you want to work with me!
When I started Yarn Obsession it was to sell crochet. I simply wanted a way to sell the pieces that I was frantically making so I could make more!
Along the way I ran into obstacles: Not enough sales, scattered focus, not enough time to complete projects, not getting paid enough, frustration with lack of know how, etc.
So, I began reading, taking courses, devouring all the information I could and shifted the focus of my “Brand” to create patterns and less completed items. That way I could make a ton of different things and keep the crochet fire burning.
One day in 2011, I created a video. Yarn Obsession TV was born (although I didn’t know it yet).
Today, my passion is to create tutorial videos on crochet stitches, completed crochet projects & selling crochet tips.
You may be wondering why I told you all that information, right?
Well, it’s because last year I decided to completely streamline my business so I could not only deliver exactly what you need, but I could do it with very little stress and overwhelm. You see, I know that’s been a struggle for me as my business has developed.
I’m guessing it has been for you.
I’m sure you don’t want to have to take a course that will require you to sit at a specific time to do a specific thing because, if you’re like me, your life doesn’t work that way.
You’ve got a home, kids, work and a significant other that all demand your time and attention. . . not to mention the need for a social life and those pesky friends! 😉
Thing is, I have the same thing and I don’t want to look back in future years and wonder why I worked so hard, missed so much just for a career.
Don’t get me wrong, I believe in having a career, but I also believe in having first things always come first and allowing myself to work within the parameters of letting everything else go.
That’s why right now I have two work with me options to help you build a business selling your crochet without destroying your hands, relationships and love of your art in the process!

The fastest, easiest & best way to work with me is by being a V.I.P.!
When you become a V.I.P. you have my ear. I’m tuned into your questions, your needs & your business. You’ll have access to exclusive business, crochet & tips tutorials that won’t be available to the general public.

When I started we were struggling financially and I had to wait a few years before I could finally pay for some of the training I received. I want to make a lot of that information accessible to you even if you’re not yet making any money selling crochet.
As a member of the Yarn Obsession V.I.P. Community you’ll hear about new offerings, receive discounts on courses that are outside the community (not many) and have first views of new offerings.

6-Week One-on-One Coaching – Coming Soon
When I first started on Facebook I couldn’t figure it out.
I thought everything I was doing was wrong because I just didn’t see any engagement.
Right when I was about to give up, I talked to my mentor and asked what he thought.
He took one look, told me to hold the course, I was doing exactly what needed to be done to build a thriving community, gave me a few tips and a much needed pep talk.
Within 6 months I had people talking to me, engaging with my content and learning more about my business.
That’s what I want to do for you. I want to be the extra set of eyes, the sounding board and the “coach” to your quarterback.
Yes, we can all learn a lot for free on the Internet. But having someone to help organize, sift through and put into perspective what you’re learning is key to confidently growing a thriving business.
Who this will work best for
- Someone who has already started a business and needs some direction
- Someone with a social media presence that may not be working as well as they’d like
- Someone willing to take a closer look at their business and make necessary changes
- Someone who would like to make more money on a monthly basis
- Someone motivated enough to work intensely on their business for 6 weeks
- Someone who is ready to push themselves to reach their goals
Does that sound like you?
If so I’d love to work with you! I know what it’s like to really want something and feel it’s elusive. Let’s make it a reality.
I’m not going to tell you it’s going to be easy, it’s not, but I want you to know that none of this is easy, but it’s all worth it in the end.
What we will commit to doing
We’ll be connected for six weeks. In that time I’m going to give you a lot to think about, act on and learn. It’s important that you’re committed to the time we’ll spend together. Here are a few things you can look forward to:
- Three (3) 30-minute One-on-one coaching calls
- Brainstorming email sessions
The coaching program is still in the works, but if it sounds like something you’d like to do CLICK HERE to complete a very brief survey and you’ll be on the list for notification!
