The class is great, but I am having difficulty viewing it on Safari and even on Google Chrome.
It stopped several times and now when I tried to click to continue watching. I see nothing but a black video screen with a note that the class is currently unavailable try later. Very frustrating.

This was a terrific class! The way Ms. Gormley has structured the curriculum you receive an excellent foundation in how to crochet. She is very thorough! Her manner of teaching is very clear and encouraging. Also, the camera work is excellent and complements her demonstrations perfectly. I look forward to taking more classes from Ms. Gormley in the future!

I am very pleased with my beginner Crochet pack. This book is easy to read step by step instructions with pictures of the various stitches. Crocheting is new to me and to date I have engaged in about 5 projects. I am getting really good at making the sassy hats and dish cloths. I find it relaxing to be able to make pretty things and I plan on making Christmas gifts for my family and friends. Ellen's class is easy to keep up and understand. I like the opportunity of being able to go back to various parts of class and re-review, stop, start as I go along. I plan on purchasing the DVDs on further projects.

I thoroughly enjoyed this beginner video. I used to crochet years ago and haven't picked up a hook since, busy life I guess. My last project was making Barbie Doll clothes for my young daughter that was over 30 years ago. I was pleased that a few projects came with this video and you follow along with the instructor, Ellen, to make each project. That helped refresh my memory, how to read by the instructions and what the acronyms meant. Ellen also teaches how to read diagrams which are actually the instructions but in a different format. Diagrams are new to me. They are fun to use. Ellen has a pleasant voice and is very clear in her instructions. Just like having a personal teacher, at your pace, at your convenience.

I just finished watching Learn to Crochet with Ellen Gormley. Ellen is an excellent teacher, and so enthusiastic. She makes learning fun. I have learned so much from this class, never having picked up a crochet hook before. I used to watch my aunt crochet slippers all the time and now I feel confident enough to tackle just about anything. Please keep the classes coming, this is a fabulous way to learn new skills and practice on some old ones. Thank you so much!
