Great class! Ellen is a wonderful instructor. I learned a lot and can't wait to complete several of the projects. The only parts that seemed a bit odd were when the camera angle switched to facing Ellen - those parts don't help at all and I had to turn away from the screen because it confused me. Other than that it is an awesome class. Will be signing up for more online classes as well. Thank you for making learning so quick and easy!

I'm a returning crocheter from a couple of decades ago. So, it's like I'm starting all over again. Very good, concise instructions, & again, the instructor does not go too fast...easy to learn again.

Awesome instructor who takes the time to show each step and explanations are very clear. Highly recommend this class for a beginner as the instructor seems to "keep the stress level" down on learning the new techniques and you don't mind practicing!

I was taking classes in a craft store & the instructor was going so fast and I didn't understand anything. That I went home very disappointed, that I never went back. But these Classes are awesome I already made 3 things from the classes and I learn the name of ever basic stitch. What I liked is that I could go back and hear it again anytime. I'm so happy, thanks so much for taking your time and patience. I will be purchasing many more classes.
Anyone thinking on buying these classes, don't think about it twice. You will love them too. The instructor is AWESOME!!!
