Three years ago I decided to try teaching crochet via the internet, with YouTube being my main outlet. At first I was using an old digital camera. The quality and angle was poor but despite the lack of 'high-tech' aids I managed to create video's that people actually wanted to watch and learn from. Since then, my operation has become a little more sophisticated. I use a HD video camera on a tripod To date, I have over 470 video tutorials on my channel, bobwilson123. I start with basic stitches (taken slowly so someone new to the craft can pick it up) and moving on to more advanced patterns, most of which I have written and created myself. My fan base has grown to over 50,000 subscribers and over 23,000,000 views! I have expanded my virtual fan base by adding a FaceBook fan page called, Bobwilson123 - YouTube Crochet Channel. The FaceBook page is a wonderful place to go for inspiration and chat with like minded people. With over 15,000 people on the page, there is sure to be someone that can help is you ever get stuck with your crochet project I really enjoy sharing my skill, and passion, with as many people as I can. I can't believe I get to do this every day and have met many wonderful people through crochet, many of which have become great friends. I have to thank my best friend Lisa for teaching me how to crochet almost 11 years ago and my fiance Kris, for all his support, as well as a few special ladies, who help me keep up with the 300+ flood of emails, and fan mail, I receive on a daily basis. You all know who you are. Without you all, I wouldn't be able to do what I do. Clare aka bobwilson123
