Welcome Inside Crochet readers!

You are here because you read Inside Crochet Magazine’s review of my Craftsy.com class on reading crochet symbols! Thanks for stopping by.

Some nice things have been said about the class, and I hope you are interested in taking it. The amazing thing about a Craftsy class compared to watching a video from another site is that you get to interact with the teacher in the video and ask questions. Charles crochet symbols at CraftsySo if there is a gap between what you want to learn and what is in the video lesson, you can always ask.¬† And I promise to provide all the help and additional information you need if I know the answers, or to research it to the best of my ability if I don’t know the answer right away. There is also a speed management tool. You can speed up or slow down the video or you can ask the last 30 seconds to be replayed if you’ve missed anything I’ve said.

There are two advantages to having arrived at this page because you are an Inside Crochet Magazine subscriber: A] you get the 50% off introductory price by clicking on the banner picture at the top of the screen, and you don’t have to wait for Craftsy’s semi-annual sales, and B] if you would like to enter your name to win FREE enrollment in the class**, I just simply would request that before the December 15th (2014) random draw, you enter your email in the form near the bottom of the screen. I’ll tell you a bit more about my request for your email further down.

A third bonus¬† is that you will find links to some of my fellow crochet teachers’ classes at Craftsy, and at a discount. See them at the bottom of this post.

I will not give or sell your email to any individual or company as I value privacy and security as much as you. I will send periodic news bulletins about crochet and knitting news and resources, but at the moment, I only send them about 6 times per year, so your mailbox won’t fill up with emails from me.

instructorbadgeAs a teacher I am always looking for learners’ questions, because I love giving or finding the answers to questions people have about all the mysteries and intricacies of crochet. So my news bulletin will mostly be my answering crocheters’ questions.

At any time after the giveaway is over, you can unsubscribe from my news bulletin, and I won’t mind a bit. (As a Canadian citizen, I am also governed by some very strict anti-SPAM laws that I don’t want to break, so never fear, you won’t be spammed, as the laws protect the rest of the world from Canadian spammers…pretty cool, eh!?)

And, as I mentioned above, to get a 50% off price from to December 5th to 31st, 2014 (or earlier if you don’t enter the draw), please click on the horizontal banner ad at the top of the screen.
