Learning to crochet with Makedomenders
Posted on: September 29, 2014
As you may have gathered, I love making. Sewing, embroidering, knitting and crocheting. Can’t stop and there isn’t a day goes by when I’m not doing one of those activities, even two or more! It’s not that I’m particularly talented, just hyper-active/creative. I love to see how our craft party workshops express this love to many who haven’t thought in these terms. Pass the love!
Not so long ago, I taught crochet at the wonderful knit emporium and world famous yarn shop, Loop, in London. I loved enthusing to anyone who wanted to know that crochet is the best thing for creating, relaxing and all round enjoying. I also blogged about my passion for the craft at Chaincreative and, if you do want the definitive word on how to crochet with as much information about everything surrounding the craft as I could snuffle out, then it’s the place to go.
As autumn and winter are just round the corner, it really is an ideal time to start thinking of whiling some of the darker hours of the year in a productive fashion on bus, in armchair or standing on the tube with hook in hand. It’s possible to crochet everywhere and anywhere and is, perhaps, the most portable of crafts.
If you’re looking to extend your creativity with a lovely bit of yarn and a handy crochet hook but don’t know where to begin, the Makedomenders are organising a few quick beginners’ classes before Christmas and will be announcing dates in the next few days. They’ll be based in London and Brighton and we’ll be able to offer refreshments so it can be a really cosy, friendly event. If you’re interested in the idea, please contact Bee at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you all the info.
