Just finished watching this class, which is just brilliant. I have tried all three methods in this class before, but Ellen is such a great teacher she is inspiring me to get out my hairpin loom and large knitting needles again and give these projects a go. The pace Ellen goes at is perfect, not too fast and all directions are so clear, including the filming angles. I was especially glad to see the instructions for left handers in the hairpin lace section. I feel we are often a bit left out as almost all of the teachers at Annie's are right handed. It was a shame we didn't have left handed instructions for the broomstick lace too, but understand that this would have been a bit tricky for Ellen to do.
I would have liked to see how a border would have been added to the Bruges lace table runner to join or secure the arches a bit more, by using double trebles, triple trebles etc to "fill in" spaces and joining to the outer loops of the arch.(if, say your tapes were moving in the opposite direction to the runner in this video, meaning you had many more arches), Overall though I thoroughly enjoyed this class, would love to see more.

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.

Excellent teacher. Very clear instruction and attention to detail. I enjoyed learning three new crochet techniques and will definitely recommend this class to others.

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
