Truly a fantastic learning experience. I so appreciated the step-by-step practice and the fact that the instructor took a breath or two between instructions (so many just run right into the next step). I would have liked to see how to edge the broomstick lace projects; although, the written instructions are clear. Also, the Shawlette pattern calls for a CYC#3 (DK) yarn, but the instructor said Worsted (I have requested clarification from the instructor). All in all, a terrific class. I would like Ms Gromley to produce a longer class on broomstick lace and cover crocheting in the round - perhaps with projects such as a beanie and fingerless gloves.

I thoroughly enjoyed this class. I had tried to teach myself hairpin lace many years ago but failed dismally. Now I'm on my way to being an expert! I have made two of the gentle waves scarves, and the triangular scarf. Now I'm working on a decorative scarf of my own devising, perfect ways to use up those lovely yarns you buy on a whim. Ours is not a table runner type house, but I'm itching to try some Bruges lace. I love the way you show how the techniques work in heavy yarns as well. The video is beautifully produced and presented and the accompanying instructions couldn't be bettered. Many thanks to all involved, I'll certainly be keeping an eye out for other classes.

Such an interesting class, you are an excellent instructor. I have wanted to learn this for many years and NOW I KNOW HOW! It is so helpful the way that you go over each step several times to make it very clear. Keep up the good work and hope to see you again in another class. Thank You!!

I've wanted to learn Broomstick and Bruges lace for several years now and with this class, I also learned Hairpin lace. I would highly recommend this class and teacher to anyone wanting to learn a new crochet skill!
