I am very happy to reccommend this class for any beginning crocheter! It clearly illustrates all the basic stitches that have previously puzzled me. Knowing that this reference remains at my disposal gives me the confidence to begin a new project at once!

I am thoroughly enjoying this class! I took a class at my local shop and it was good; however this technique of watching up close videos that u can repeat and slow down is really good better than attending a class. The instructor has a very nice way of teaching! Totally recommend this class!!!!

Its a very good class to review all basic stitches and where to put exactly the hook,
I feel I have gained much more confidence to develop new projects, and I am very
happy to have this class as a reference guide in my library. The teacher as well
has a very gently and pleasing manner to explain all the class, thank you.
