"I loved this class—Jennifer is an excellent teacher and the projects were well designed for learning Tunisian crochet. I found her instructions, tips and discussion very helpful. The class was worth it on so many levels ... I've taken other online classes, but this was my first intro to the Craftsy platform and I like it a lot!"
