    I love the youtube videos of "Teresa Richardson" .
    I found her tutorials very easy to understand.

    chinnari, welcome to IL and to our crocheteers world. Regarding the materials, you try to enquire with the nearest fancy store for the crochet hook and thread. As and when I get across the material supply information of your area, will pass it on to you. In the meantime, check the index list of this forum where yo umay find useful threads including the material suppliers. Happy crocheting.:thumbsup
