Michele has been an avid knit and crochet designer for Annie's since the 1980s. As she says, "There is nothing I'd rather do!" Michele's grandmother taught her and her sister to knit when Michele was just 5 or 6 years old. While Michele loved knitting right away, she didn't know much more than the knit stitch until she was 19. Her motivation for learning more about knitting came when another girl gave her boyfriend, Dick, a pair of handknit mittens. She knit Dick a new pair so he'd have to throw out the other pair. Her hard work must have paid off, as she and Dick have been happily married for many years and have three grown children and six grandchildren.

In her early 20s, Michele taught herself how to crochet, and now she equally loves both crafts. She has designed 100s of patterns and has been published countless times by Annie's, Better Homes and Gardens, Coats & Clark, Universal Yarn and Herrschners, among others.

For a "Learn to" class I was disappointed. The very first instruction for the first character was wrong. Then there was a lot of bouncing back and forth in the instructions to get the different pieces. The instructor is easy to understand and prompt on returning emails. Her directions were correct as well as I could tell. I learned that I think I'll skip the Amigurumi aspect of crochet.

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.

Michele Wilcox is a wonderful teacher. Her love of crochet comes through the screen and you're "hooked". I've been crocheting on and off for forty years. Needle arts are my passion and this tutorial was so much fun. Michele has a way about her that makes the class so enjoyable. I did have to tweak some of the outfits just a little, but that was no big deal. Would most definitely take another class if she offered one. If you want to feel the free spirit of being a kid again, take this class!! Will crochet these treasures over and over.

I LOVED this class! This was my first online class experience, and it far exceeded my expectations. It was such fun! I made all four animals, and they all came out looking just like the photos -- they are super cute. My favorites are Li'l Piggy and Daisy Duck. I highly recommend this class if you're at all interested in amigurumi. The camera angles were great, and everything instructor Michele said was very helpful. I asked Michele a couple of questions, and she was very gracious. I learned new techniques and tips that I can put to good use on other projects. Thank you, Annie's, for providing a terrific class from a very talented designer with projects that were fun to make. I can't wait to give my finished animals as gifts.

I finished the Fox! My grand-daughter's favorite song is "What does the fox say". The fox is adorable! I'm going to start on the pig next. Excellent pattern!
I didn't really need the video as I'm experienced and the pattern was good, but I will go back and look at the videos later.
