I thoroughly enjoyed Belinda's online class. I am an average cross stitcher but found her informative and relaxing. And I picked up a few tips.
Thanks

I think the class was good....very basic. I have taken Annie's classes before and I really don't like that the teacher appears to be reading from a script. I much prefer a more relaxed spontaneous presentation but that's me. I have taken a beginning cross stitch class elsewhere and the content was so much more comprehensive. The project offered in that class was more complicated which provided opportunities for additional teaching beyond the very basic instruction offered in the Annie's class. I think I got more value for my money elsewhere than in this class but it was a good first step.

I had done some counted cross-stitch many years ago, self taught from the instructions in craft magazines (back in the 1970s!). I decided to take this class as a refresher and was very pleased with it; not only did it review the things I had learned in the past, it covered some things that I had never encountered and also gave me some good ideas for helping my granddaughters learn this beautiful form of needlework. At this point I have not stitched any of the projects but have watched the entire class; now I'm planning to do the beehive, the autumn greeting card and the seasonal sampler, before tackling a couple of more advanced projects. Thank you, Belinda (and Annie's)!
