About Crochet Geek

Teresa has been crocheting for over 30 years, teaching crochet since 2006 on her channel Crochet Geek. You will find video tutorials for the beginner crochet stitches, caps and hats, stuffed toys, and a variety of other crochet projects and crochet tips.

Teresa does all her own video recording and editing, social media engagement and writing all crochet tutorials and patterns.

People around the world have created an income from the handmade items they make with crochet. Teresa has turned crochet in to her career.

Teresa created her channel on October 22, 2006, after moving with her husband to Savannah Georgia. She needed a place to show video of their new house. At that time, all she had was an avi camera that took some poor quality video. It served a purpose.

She uploaded videos for over a year before the partner program was announced and came out of beta for applications. She applied and was accepted to the partner program in December of 2007.

  1. Love your videos, so helpful in learning new stitches. Just watched the Puff Stitch Hat video and am going to make one immediately. My only problem with watching the video it looked like you made 5 loops yet you said you had nine loops on your hook. What am I missing? Could you email me at essjay6072@yahoo.com with your answer?
    Also am going to try your watercolor flower.

  6. Hi Teresa!

    I just found your YouTube Channel yesterday. I am sooo excited about exploring every aspect of it.

    I was wondering...What is the "partner program" that is mentioned in the last line of your Bio (above)?

    I'm looking forward to communicating with you further in the near future.

    Talk with you later.

    Until then...

It is somewhat like crochet but so far the videos they have are not very helpful. If you are familiar with Fauxchet tool, would you do a video? Thank you, Karen
