Here’s what students are saying about this online course:


“The amount of detail in the written directions as well as the videos is outstanding. The group support and monthly Zoom meetings is icing on the cake. I have thoroughly enjoyed this process which has expanded my colour confidence as well as brought me joy with each component addition. Sue is an amazing teacher and I cannot recommend this course highly enough!”

Carol Garland

“I would like to thank you for the wonderful 6 months of joy that this amazing project has given me. Not only has it developed my crochet skills but it has given me a fantastic opportunity to experiment with colour and texture. Your easy to follow tutorials and clear written instructions makes this an enjoyable process for even the most inexperienced crocheter. I would whole heartedly recommend this course to anyone who loves to work with yarn and colour. I am so thrilled with my Wallflowers Blanket and it will take pride of place in my home. I will definitely be signing up for another of your courses.”

Linda Evans

“An easily accessible course with clear instructions, videos and pdf's. Sue's approach to teaching is encouraging, patient and supportive. The time spent on color selection is invaluable although it is a challenge to wait to start. This course is suitable for beginning and experienced crocheters. Thank you for your guidance, patience and encouragement.”

Mary Pat Aust

“Every aspect of Sue Maton's Wallflowers course is truly outstanding.  It begins with an extraordinary design, unlike any I’ve seen before.  In clear, concise written and video instructions, Sue guides you through colour exploration, the choosing of your own personal palette, and finally to the step-by-step construction of this exceptional piece.  It is quite a journey and a huge amount of work, but Sue keeps it all accessible and in perspective throughout.  She also offers the opportunity to share with others around the world working on the blanket in a supportive community through Zoom calls and a Facebook group. Without reservation, I highly recommend this rewarding course to anyone with a basic knowledge of crochet and a desire to create something truly unique.”

Veryl Clark

“I think this an amazing course, it works at a perfect pace and the learning experience is fabulous resulting in a wonderful piece of crochet art ….it really stretches the pupil but in very safe and easy way!”

More From My Previous Students:


“For me Wallflowers started off as an interest in making a beautiful blanket I came across online with the hope I would also learn a few new skills along the way. I had no idea it would become this awesome journey of crochet, support, and inspiration. Sue is an amazing teacher and creates a learning environment that is filled with joy and encouragement. Her well orchestrated videos and coordinating PDFs provide all the technical details necessary to complete each motif. Her choice of music combined with patient instructions enhances the experience. This course has taken me on a journey that was nothing short of spectacular.

I will be forever grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of a network of others that brought me so much enjoyment. Thank you so much Sue for creating this whole experience for us all. My completed blanket will be a constant reminder of this amazing course.

Karen Moon

“A joy to complete a complicated unique project broken down into manageable, easy steps. Well-paced thorough tuition and encouraging support throughout. I have loved the whole course and found the videos easy to follow (pausing & rewinding several times in some places!) It has become a bit of an obsession and I will be quite lost in the evenings once all those ends are sewn in!”

Helen Hartley

“I am REALLY enjoying the course.  I love to crochet.  I have friends and family who appreciate that I crochet and knit, but they are not crocheting with me.  It has been a joy to see everyone’s colour choices and progress so far. That fact that I have new acquaintances working on the same project really adds to the enjoyment.  The videos are absolutely lovely and your tutorials are very helpful and clear.  I am an advanced crocheter, but I always learn something new or am reminded of something important when I watch tutorials, even those meant for beginners.  Thank you for working hard to make this course of such high quality.

Jerilyn Boos

“I’ve love the course. You always made me feel relaxed on my progress which was slower than others. I felt quite anxious in the first week that I wasn’t keeping up, but at the first Q&A you said that we should all take our own time. The videos are excellent and mean I don’t spend ages or angst trying to understand the pattern. I’m so proud of what I am creating – thanks for providing such a great course. It’s lovely in the Q&A sessions to meet people around the world and in my own country. I couldn’t recommend your course more highly.”

Cathy Aboud

“Sue, Thank you sooo much!!! I can’t begin to tell you how much I have thoroughly enjoyed your courses. You are such a wonderful teacher!! The videos are incredible and so well made!!  I adore the music you use too!  You have a very special talent and I am so happy that I was able to finally be involved in your courses and the zoom meetings!! The pace for this course has been spot on for me too!  I feel that you have balanced it out perfectly!!
