The directions were confusing to me. Also, for left handers, the instructions left a LOT to be desired...sad, because the finished pieces are so beautiful.

Hi I am Jaya from Malaysia. This class was just excellent. I felt as though I was sitting in a classroom. The tutor is extremely knowledgeable on her techniques. I have seen the hairpin lace and the broomstick crochet. Have already done the broomstick crochet scarf.It is a gift for my friend in Canada.

Want to start on the hairpin next. I have understood it quite well.
Bruges crochet I have not seen yet. Will comment later.

Will recommend to others. View this before Utube
