Very Good Review by Carolyn

I have been crocheting for a very long time, but found that I could still learn a thing or two from Lily Chin!

So many tips, so much info Review by Diane

I thought I knew it all about crocheting, but Lily is the true Guru! Now every time I work on a project I'm doing things better than before! So many good tips, tricks and techniques. Every crocheter should see these videos before they start another project.

Something for Everyone! Review by Anita

I loved watching it. Some techniques were familiar and some with a new twist. Short cuts and time savers are through out this video. I have been crocheting for quiet a while and I learned a new thing or two. In time as I apply some of Lily Chin's techniques it will save me in time and make some aspects of crocheting more enjoyable.

Excellent & great fun! Review by Carol

I loved this DVD. I had recently bought Mosaic Crochet by Lily Chin & enjoyed it so much that I thought this one would be worth getting, even though I hav been crocheting, on & off, for years. As one of the other reviewers said 'why didn't I think of that?" over some of the tips, when the suggested technique was so obvious when explained & demonstrated. Other suggestions confirmed what I have been doing wrong or wasn't sure about, & everything put across so well & with humour. This is something I will watch over & over, not only to remind myself of how to do things but just for the enjoyment of watching Lily at work. (The only thing missing is how to join crochet strips and motifs without dreading the thought of doing it & putting it off! Perhaps Lily is still working on that one!)

Ingenious Suggestions Review by Leane

There are many tips and tricks, it is hard to keep track. I have watched twice and will watch again to glean some more.
Most of her tips are so easy, I thought, "why didn't I think of that?!"
You won't regret purchasing this download/DVD. If you follow her suggestions, you will become a better and faster crochet crafter.

Simply explained, Great tips Review by Angie

Lily Chin's tips are great - esp. for a beginner. She does a wonderful job explaining steps in a simple way that's easily understandable...and entertaining. I would definitely recommend this video to any crocheter, at any skill level.

Thought-provoking and Fun Review by Sarah

I had not had the pleasure of seeing Lily Chin in action previously, so I was happily surprised at her easy manner and fun delivery. Her humorous asides and personal stories add depth to the information, which, while fairly basic in some instances, was all good technique that I could use quickly and with confidence. There was only one technique (for reinforcing buttonholes) that I was not immediately interested in using on a project. Nicely done.
