Review quote

"Teresa Carter is a perfect teacher, blending her well-honed craft with a singular sense of style. In her techniques, crochet is artfully pared down to the essentials and the simplicity of stitch. It's her modern aesthetic and minimalist's touch that makes crochet accessible to anyone of any skill level."
--Martha Stewart Living, Alexandra Churchill "I was fortunate enough to participate in one of Teresa's workshops when she visited Etsy's HQ for a special event. It was my first experience with crochet and I immediately fell in love with it. I was able to create an intricate and beautiful piece of art by following Teresa's comprehensive tutorial. Her step-by-step photos provide excellent support and the guidance necessary to make everyone feel like a crocheting expert."
--Etsy, Alexandra Ketchum
