Ellen Gormley has been crocheting since she was about 10 years old, but didn't begin her design career until 2004 when she began staying home with her children. She stitched more than 80 afghans before becoming a full-time crafter who "gets paid to play with yarn!" Within the crochet community, Ellen is particularly well-known for her stylish bead crochet and join-as-you-go crochet and motif designs. Ellen has more than 200 published designs including garments, bags and accessories, and home decor.

Ellen has been published in numerous crochet magazines and has written two books, Go Crochet! Afghan Design Workbook, published in 2011, and the recently released Learn Bruges Lace, published by Annie's. She is the instructor of Annie’s Learn to Crochet and Learn to Bead Crochet video classes and is also one of the crochet experts featured on Knit and Crochet Now! which airs on PBS. In 2013, Ellen was named editor of Annie’s Crochet! magazine.

I thoroughly enjoyed the class and thought the teacher was great. I know it is not realistic, but I wish she could take us through a whole class making an item. I did start a granny square based on what I learned. Will revisit and take another class soon.

I loved this class. Ms. Gormley is an excellent teacher; I would take other classes taught by her when the time comes. Her teaching is straight-forward, the videos are slow enough that they are easy to follow. Thank you Ms. Gormley for teaching this class and thank you Annie's for offering it.

It had really been a long time since I had crocheted and I now make jewelry. Some of the jewelry that is popular now, uses crochet stitches with beads added. I wanted to refresh my memory and the class certainly did that. It is very easy to follow and I love being able stop and start as I needed to.
