Okay. Either you’ve been patiently waiting for the big announcement since I returned home from my trip to Berne, Indiana in January, or you’ve forgotten about it and gone about your day-to-day lives (which is probably more believable!). Well today is the “big reveal”, so to speak! The reason I went to Berne, IN was to film a crochet video class for Annie’s. It’s not just any crochet video; it’s a “thread crochet” video! You may have some idea of how much I LOVE thread crochet by now. I would be thrilled if more crocheters came to love thread crochet as much as me! There are some very talented thread crochet designers out there: Kathryn White, Patricia Kristoffersen and many more. If you’ve been thinking about jumping into the world of thread crochet, I hope you’ll consider taking my online video class through Annie’s. I would love to have some of my blog followers take the class so we can get to know each other more and I can help you advance your crochet skills and knowledge (isn’t that what blogging and teaching should be all about anyway?).
You can read all about my “Crocheting With Thread” online video class and watch a few sample segments of the video here. This is my first crochet video and I hope to do many more in the near future!
If you don’t recognize me in the video or in the photo, it’s because I’m wearing makeup in them (I haven’t worn makeup for years). They had a hair and makeup stylist named Amy who did my hair and makeup for the video each of the 3 days I was there. It’s a shock to see myself made up, but it’s probably better that way (I have fair skin and I’d blind everyone without the makeup, so it was necessary!). I’ve heard that when you’re doing photography or videotaping, the colors get washed out under the studio lights, so they added more color to my face to compensate for that! Amy was fantastic, as was everyone involved in producing the video. In the studio each day were: Laura Scott, the producer (the one in charge); Nicole, the video editor; Scott and Turner, the videographers; Allison, the production assistant and Amy, the hair and makeup artist.
Okay, just for fun, here I am before and after makeup:
I had a blast filming the video in Berne. Everyone on the set (especially the cameramen) made me feel relaxed. They were very professional and easy to get along with. We all had the same goal in mind: to produce a great video! I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Berne and filming the video. I hope you enjoy the free video segments of my “Crocheting With Thread” class at Annie’s and seriously consider taking the class (if you’d like to learn to crochet with thread, that is).
Here is another photo of my trip to Berne (inside the video studio):
This is the crew and me after the video was finished. From left to right: Turner, Nicole, Laura, me, Amy, Allison and Scott. Don’t we look happy that it’s all over?
I think everyone did a fabulous job. Thanks so much for the hard work that each one of you did, especially you, Laura! Let’s do it again some time!
I hope you enjoyed this little look inside the video studio at Annie’s and will consider taking an online video class through Annie’s to further your crochet skills and knowledge.
