NEW Beginner crochet class with Amy 


This week Amy held a class on crochet flowers.  WOW!! What a crowded class!   I guess Amy hit upon a winner here.  We will do this class again- and soon.  But for right now- we have to stay on crochet schedule...







So for next week- Amy will be teaching the treble crochet stitch by making these shamrocks.    Please bring a size G or H crochet hook and just a couple of extra dollars to purchase the yarn kit to make them.   We will have small inexpensive kits available in Fantasy Naturale and Encore Worsted.  They make a great embellishment or a lapel pin.  


This is one of the fastest growing classes we have.  Amy is terrific and she is showing how much fun crochet can be!


ALSO- please note...  Amy encourages all to work on a crochet project of their own choice.  The featured project of week is just a suggestion- and its usually a fun one too.




 Lavanya's class for Beginners-

Thursday mornings 10:00 - 12:00 pm


The Maria Hat


Lavanya will be guiding her beginners  through an Encore Mega hat.  Worked in the round with only knit stitches, this is the perfect first hat project!  You will need 1 ball of Encore Mega and  a 16" size US 15 circular needle.  You should get most, if not all of the hat knit up in just one class session!
