I had the opportunity to review two online crochet classes from Annie’s Crafts! If you don’t know, Annie’s Crafts is an online place where you will find all kinds of fun things for different crafts like knitting, crocheting, paper crafts, beading and jewelry, sewing and more! They have supplies, patterns, books, videos and lots more tools that are all easy to access on their website. Signing up is free! I was very excited when they contacted me. I am a big fan of the show Knit and Crochet Now. They sell all the DVDs on their site. I have learned so much watching those DVDs! I will pop one in if I need inspiration as I’m crocheting or knitting
One of the great features from Annie’s Crafts are the online classes. They are great for anyone who wants to be able to visually learn a craft. I am a visual learner myself so online classes are awesome for me! I was able to learn and try the Crocodile Stitch class and the Tunisian Lace and Cables class. I knew a little about Tunisian Lace but not cables. The Crocodile Stitch was completely new to me and it’s a lot of fun! Click here to view their classes.
Each class is broken down into lessons. You can pick and choose which lesson you would like to work on. You can jump back and forth to which ever ones you would like. As you are watching, you can also add class notes for yourself. This is a nice feature if you need to remember a specific tip or anything else. You can go to your notes and it will bring you right where you need to go! The one thing I wish the videos had were a button to go back about 30 seconds at a time. I caught myself missing something while they were showing the pattern and wanted to go back quickly but couldn’t. Here is what your online class will look like…
As you can see, there are all kinds of easy to navigate tools.
Have a question while you are watching? Well you can ask the instructor of the class! The instructor will respond to your questions and help in any way they can. I think this is a great added bonus to these classes. When you sign up for you online class, you not only get a detailed video of the techniques but also patterns! Each class provides you with great patterns using the technique you are learning. Some are simple and others will be more advanced. The instructor will help you through all the patterns step by step. How cool is that? I know sometimes I will find a new pattern, stare at it for a bit, then feel overwhelmed and maybe even discouraged. These classes take that all away.
So overall, these online classes are such a great resource to have to help you with your crafting skills. I would recommend giving them a try! Annie’s Crafts is offering all of you readers 50% off their online classes! To get your 50% off code click here! 50% off Coupon
