I am pretty new to this site, but from what I’ve seen so far, seems to be wonderful, and definitely a site I will always continue to use. I started learning how to crochet about five years ago, but with three kids, husband, and working, it was pretty much on and off again. But I love everything about crocheting, the yarn, starting a new project, and of course finishing one. It’s like finishing a good series. You can’t wait until you get to the end, but then once you do, you kind of really miss it. I haven’t crocheted as much as I would really love to. I am 34 years old, and have been wheelchair bound for the past two years. So now I actually do have time, and would love to get in knee deep working on different projects. However, because it’s extremely hard for me to leave the house, I am looking for an online group/ classes where I am able to work with others on the same projects, while being able to communicate on progress, questions, ideas, and so forth. Please let me know if the classes you offer are taken individually or within a group setting, and if there is a monthly or yearly membership fee for these classes, versus per class. If this site doesn’t offer a group setting, I would highly appreciate it, if you can provide me with the names and websites where I may find this type of group setting. Thank you so much, I appreciate your time.
