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!

Great class! The instructions were clear, and Susan took time to show everything she was talking about. Plus all of the 'extra' info, such as hook size with yarn size, and the blocking are included, which helps a lot. Thanks!

I enjoyed this very much, and followed along easily. Was very happy that my first doily turned out so well. Will make several more! Thank you for the clear and concise instructions, and the ability to play little sections over and over again.

Not bad for 4.95. I have not yet completed the project. I have watched it to its entirety. I would like to do the doily; then expand it into a larger project. I just need to see what the progression is in order to do so.

Great class for beginners as well as good way to remember what you have forgot. I got what I needed after not crocheting for several years. Well spent money!

I never thought that I would be able to make such beautiful work like my Mother used to make, until I came across this class.
