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 thought the class was fairly well done I have only done the first project so far, but I found sometimes the instructors fingers were in the way of seeing exactly where she was putting the hook and I found the forward and back arrows don't work and you have to use the slide at the top and it is hard to back up to where you wanted to see the step in slow motion I am a beginner and having lots of fun learning to crochet.

I loved this class; it is so easy to follow. I have always wanted to learn how to crochet, and I am very confident about mastering the basic stitches and creating some wonderful projects. I also love being able to watch the video over and over to catch a step or process I may have missed.

I am a first time crocheter, first time online class. I was skeptical about an online class and was surprised by how quickly it made sense. I am a visual learner and the camera angles where perfect. The best feature is the pause button, especially when you get overwhelmed.

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.
