Love this class. Instructions are so easy to follow
The instructor has an easy voice to listen to. Have taken classes where the voice is not good would take more of her classes

I am loving this class. I have been intrigued by Amigurumi for some time, but never tried it. When I saw this class and the sweet animals, just had to try it. Have made Li'l Piggy so far. I did have a little trouble with the fitting of the outfit (my fault) - but made some "alterations" and she is just soooo adorable. Cannot wait to move on to the next critter.

I love this class I also took the knitting class had a lot of trouble with it so I think I will stick to the first class. I loved the instructor Michele she made it very understandable.

Absolutely loved this class. Michele Wilcox made it easy & fun. I knit but have had trouble in the past trying to learn to crochet. This class helped me to learn & have tons of fun doing it. My 17 month old Grandson loved Lil Piggy. There was an error in some of the printed directions but Michele answered my question very quickly. I highly recommend this class.

Very clear instructions, even for me as a Spanish speaker in Mexico. Sometimes I would have liked that the instructor repeated the making of the head and body for the frog and all the animals that are crocheted the same way than the piggy, just for not going back to the right part of piggy when I'm making another animal, although I know that this will make the whole class longer than it is now.
