Susan Lowman loves to crochet -- especially with crochet thread -- and can't imagine a day without crochet! Susan learned to crochet in the 1970s and has been designing professionally since 1999. Her very first published design, Snowflake Doily & Coaster, was purchased by Annie's and sold as a kit in 2000. Since then, Susan has had more than 150 original crochet designs published in various books, magazines and leaflets. She is a frequent contributor to Crochet World magazine, published by Annie's. In 2012, a collection of her creative dishcloths was also published by Annie's in a pattern book called Wiggly Crochet Dishcloths.

One of Susan's professional achievements was receiving a "Flamie Award" in 2011 for "Best Crochet Design for 3-D Objects" for her Dragon Ship design, which was published as a web bonus in Crochet World magazine's February 2011 issue.

Susan is a proud member of CGOA (Crochet Guild of America), secretary on the CGOA Board, liaison to the Masters Committee, as well as co-chair and senior portfolio reviewer for the Masters Committee. As a Craft Yarn Council Certified Crochet Instructor and Teacher, she teaches regularly at the annual CGOA Chain Link Conference.

Susan owns and operates her own website,, where she blogs about crochet. You can see photos from her video shoot and trip to Annie's headquarters in Berne, Ind., at her website. Susan is also a technical crochet editor, having edited patterns for Crochet Today magazine for 5 1/2 years and for Creative Partners, LLC since 2004.

Susan is thankful for the gift of creativity that God has given her and cannot imagine a day without crochet in one form or another!

I'm new to thread crochet and this class has been a great introduction into thread crochet for me. I love Susan's style of teaching. It is obvious that she has been teaching for some time. I would love to see more classes from her. Thanks Susan and Annie's for a great class.

I love the idea of learning this, yet, I'm left handed and needs instructions I can follow.

I simply love this teacher! She explains and then executes, she is clear and soft spoken, she is not in a hurry, she gives explanations on everything she does so you understand why you have to do the step ... the camera gets every step very clear and I can see where I have to insert my hook (very important for me, as here is were a lot of times I get lost) simply wonderful. I am just starting my course and learning so much!! I hope she does more classes for us. PLEASSEEE Maybe learn to crochet the beautiful vanilla piece of wardrobe over her black shirt. It is beautiful ... GREAT TEACHER, GREAT CLASS!!

I have been crocheting for a few years, but this class helped me tremendously to see how to crochet along sides of rows, how to make my stitches more even, how to block, etc. I am looking forward to trying these on my own now. The instructor is very clear and well spoken.
