  • Is your crochet missing that elusive Wow Factor?
  • Do you lose interest after that initial buzz of starting a new CROCHET project?
  • Would you like to become better acquainted with your creative, intuitive soul?
  • Are you bored of your favourite ‘go to’ colours and lack colour confidence?
  • Do you miss learning with a supportive group?
  • Do you want to develop your skills but find it difficult on your own?
  • Do you tell yourself you’re not a creative person?

If you can answer YES to any of the above questions- you’re in the right place!

  • Use multiple methods of teaching to suit all learning styles
  • Help you stay on task through motivational audios and just being there to support you through the project
  • Challenge you at every step!
  • Provide you with a friendly, global, community of crafters all on the same curious journey

“The essential ingredients for creativity remain exactly the same for everybody: courage, enchantment, permission, persistence, trust—and those elements are universally accessible.”

- Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

“Sue’s workshops are master classes filled with so much wonderful content. Her approach is like no other I have ever experienced in any fiber-related course I’ve taken. They are so much more than blindly following a pattern. I’m so inspired by Sue and the community of other students — they become a virtual family”

More From My Previous Students:

 

“I made steady progress and looked forward to each pattern update. The instructions were really clear and I'm very proud of my lovely blanket.”

Sharon Mulberry- Rookes


To those on the fence (like I was): I signed up and started and it's my happy place. It's not a rigid course/how-to. It's so much deeper than that. I can see how these lessons I've already learned will be useful in other areas of my creative life. The lessons are there, absolutely, but one can always just go to YouTube to get a lesson. This is an invitation to learn and create and embrace beauty. Forgive me for gushing - I'm just so happy with my decision to sign up for this!”

Constance de Martino
