    Techy stuff is a good idea – though there’s ‘many ways to skin a cat’ – so it’s a big subject to cover. But Reverse Image Search, Refining search options – that would be useful for everyone. Being your own private detective helps but there’s always value in learning a new way.

    Hi Ian,
    Congratulations on working with The Crochet Crowd. I’m sure it will be a mutually beneficial experience.

    From reading comments on other posts, I think it would be very beneficial to have videos on the best way to upload pictures, to where they should be uploaded, etc. Also a video on navigating the website might help those who are having issues.

    It would be easier to give you more accurate feedback if we had preview sampler of what you had in mind. 🙂

    All the best,

    Hello there, I am still kind of new to the Crochet Crowd!!! I have been loving it so much, and finding so many great idea’s and it is so great that I’m not alone in my love of different kinds of crochet. I may never make the item, but I love seeing different points of view. Everyone, is so nice, it sounds like all of you do this for your love of crochet. And I need a friend that enjoys things that I like to do. I think that if you would like to try a video, I’m all for it… 🙂 I thank you for all of your work, because I don’t know how you do all of these things…. I need to have a friend that enjoys making things, sadly most of my “crafty people” have moved away, or past on. So, I really want you to know that you are helping, more than you will never know…Love to you, Lori Patterson 🙂

    Would love to learn all that you are able to teach. Always looking to learn something new. Would love to learn about staging finished products for pictures and what is needed to post a picture online. Love what you are doing now. And can tell how much you are enjoying working with Mikey and Dan. Keep up the good work it we all appreciate the hade work you are doing.

    Go for it!

    Love you ideas Ian!

    Thank you Ian and glad that someone is going to do this. My giggest interest right now is learning how to use yarn bobbins. I am working on a throw where I have to change yarn several times in 1 row and I understand that using the bobbins will eliminate all the weaving of the tying off and weaving in all the ends on each row.

  13. Valerie McClintock says:

    Ian! What a terrific idea. If you have the time and energy, go for it!

  14. Deb says:

    I just learned to crochet in January with the help of a friend and Mikey’s tutorials! I’m a visual learner and I think its a great idea!

  15. Linda Koehler says:

    I think this would be great.!

  16. Ian, great idea! How about a video that shows the less computer experienced how to open a new window, or how to do a google search? A video that would show how to navigate the website and or facebook. You are talking about a forum, what about a video to show how that works? Just a thought!

    • Yvette says:

      I very much second the idea of a Tutorial video on searching for patterns through google. I personally do not need it but there are many many others who do. Having said that I bet with all the Internet savvy and technological know how, Mikey , has told us you have, Ian, I bet you could teach me a thing or three anyway.

    • Carolyn says:

      I like this idea, too!

  17. Susan says:

    Ian, you know before your internship is over. . .we need to see YOU crocheting in a video! That is a must : )

    • Lala Chappell says:

      Yes! Excellent suggestion! I agree!

    • Evelyn Overman says:

      How great would that be? A video of Ian’s learning how to crochet. That would show all of the people who don’t crochet that it can be done. GREAT IDEA!

  18. Anne C says:

    I would love to see all kinds of crafting tutorials… my first love will always be crochet, but learning lace making using a tatting needle and shuttle… its just another way of being artistic… it just might not be pretty, lol…mikey is very artistic and perhaps would be willing to do different crafts… i would love to see beads introduced with his yarn work, for example… just an idea… i loved his ‘pet peeve’ chat… i thought i was the only one, lol… i just love the fact that after all these years of fumbling through my idea of a pattern…(im a visual learner)… i get to SEE how its done, slowly at my pace and with humour thrown in for good measure… who knows, im becoming more open to the idea of trying more expensive wools, watching mikey’s results… shhh, don’t tell my adult children,lol…

  19. Linda says:

    Hey Ian…glad to hear you are enjoying yourself…It sounds like you have lots to do…keep working your magic thru the summer…continue to enjoy and I am looking forward to hearing more from you..
