"I just joined and already took the Pattern Reading Course--I wanted to crochet more than a blanket or wash cloth--as soon as I was done with the course, I had the confidence to follow a pattern and make an owl cocoon for my niece--now, I'm starting a sweater for my grandson--so glad I found the American Crochet Association--can't wait for the next class to start!"
