New! Learn How to Crochet

  COME LEARN HOW FUN AND RELAXING CROCHETTING CAN BE!  Not only does it help with relaxation techniques, it is for both genders.  This Fall we will learn the basic stitches in crochet, by creating a Stitch Sampler Scarf.  In our second class, we will learn crochet in the round, to create a Beanie Hat, a Basket or a Market Bag of your choice.  Our third class, we will continue on and I will show how to read patterns, abbreviations, introduce you to different ways of crochet, crochet lace and Tunisian crochet, and most important, the yarns, the differences, the options, and how to read the yarn labels and know what to choose for yarn, after you choose a pattern.  Whatís online, tutorials, you tube and Facebook.  You will receive plenty of handouts and step by steps instructions, bring a Notebook to jot down more information.  Please bring with you for your first class any 2 skeins of worsted weight acrylic yarn. (Bernat, Red Heart not jumbo, Red Heart Love, Loom and Stitches, Vanna White, not chunky or baby) these are a few of the name brands.  Any color or colors or variegated you choose.  I recommend you stay away from black and dark colors or any yarns that are fuzzy, fringy, lacy or puffy. 

  You will need a crochet hook size I/5.5; it can be aluminum, plastic, wood or bamboo. The plastic or aluminum is usually the least expensive for starting out. Many love the bamboo which you can change to as you continue on.  Itís a personal choice. These items can be found at Walmart, Michaels, JoAnn, AC Moore or your local yarn shop, or online.  We will discuss more about online in class. So come for a relaxing evening.   Once we get going you wonít want it to end!
