Disclosure: I have graciously been given the opportunity to review an online crocheting class through Annie’s Crafts. All opinions that I write about are 100% my own.
I have always wanted to learn to crochet. I’ve tried picking it up a few times but have never followed through. You see, I’ll have some one teach me, like my sweet mother in law. Then I go home to start the project and will get stuck with a question or I will get frustrated and there is no one there to help me!! So I quit every time! 🙁 So sad…
So, when I was asked to review this beginners crochet class I was so excited to try again!! Once you decide on which class to take, you purchase the class, and then it shows up under your classes tab and it’s yours to start anytime you are ready.
This is the class I chose below. Once you download the class it is yours to keep. You can go back to it anytime you need to watch a section again.
Each class has an instructor that walks you through step by step on how to begin. The instructor for this class was very thorough and would repeat herself a couple of times in the difficult areas. On the right hand side of the screen the lessons are broken down into segments. This way I was able to start a new lesson each day without having to start over. Or could go back and just watch what I needed refreshing on.
It was so nice taking the online class because I could go back and review any section that I needed to. I also could pause the video when I wanted more time to work on something. Look how clear the picture displays what she is doing. I was always able to follow along well.
Below, is a picture of me crocheting!! YEA!! I think it looks pretty good so far. I’m only starting by practicing different stitches with this tutorial, but I will then start on a project. I’d love to make baby blankets for friends and family.
I am a very visual, hands on, and auditory learner. I have a difficult time doing projects like this if I were to just read it from a manual. It helps me to see someone demonstrating it, explaining it, and then allowing me to practice while I’m learning. You can email the instructor anytime with a question and they will get back to you shortly. That’s really nice! So when things get difficult you are not alone and you can have someone to walk you through where you are stuck.
Look at me go!! I am so proud of myself and having so much fun. This class has made learning to crochet easy. This is only the beginning folks. Stay tuned for more projects! 🙂
