Thank you so much. I know how to crochet it just made things more simple and more easier and detailed. Thank you Ellen, I learned how to crochet as a young 13 year old girl and taught myself through the years. I see I was doing everything right except knowing how to connect the motifs right. Crocheting helps me relax and think more clearly. I'd recommend your videos to anyone that knows how to crochet to sharpen up their skills, and even for the beginner. You make it so easy to learn thank you!!!

I am thrilled I found the online class. I took a short class years ago but I had forgotten so much. This class with Ellen has I enabled me to be able to pick the craft up at age 63. My grandmother used to crochet all the time so I know where the love for the art started. Thank you Ellen and Annie's for offering such a wonderful class. I crochet some everyday and hope to get good enough to inspire my granddaughter. I cannot think of anything to change except I would love to be able to take additional classes taught by Ellen.

I loved the simplicity with which Ellen teaches crocheting. I learned how to crochet when I was a child but didn't really know how to read a crochet pattern. After taking the class, at my own leisure which I love, I can now read crochet patterns and learn new stitches as I go along! The class provided many new stitches for me. Thanks.
