Payal is a wonderful teacher. Her knowledge of this yarn craft is exceptional. I am a total beginner and it was great to start to learn with this very patient and knowledgeable teacher. I highly recommend that you purchase a kit from her. I had my hooks and yarn and they were of very inferior quality which made learning a lot more difficult. Spend the extra money - it’s worth it. Landed up purchasing an excellent high quality set of hooks which definitely make a difference! Payal has a good selection of crochet accessories for sale. Enjoy - I sm living my classes, highly recommended.
