October 2012 Classes

I’m pleased to be able to announce the following short courses will be running:


Sensational Crochet Squares

Learn basic crochet stitches, changing colour, and pattern reading to make squares which you can join together to complete a project of your choice. All the materials you need to practise with are included, but you will want to choose your own project colours to take home. Possible projects include a bag, cushion, or baby blanket. No previous crochet needed – beginners most welcome!

Where? Hobbycraft, Preston

When? Tuesdays 9th, 16th & 23rd October 2012, 10.30am – 12.30pm

Cost? £30 for all 3 weeks (introductory price)


Introduction to Hairpin Crochet Lace

Use basic single crochet stitches (UK double) to make braids which you can join together into a sampler scarf or shawl. This course is more detailed than most of the instructions you find online, and you will learn different ways to make the braid, learn about shaping, at least 3 different ways to join them together, and experiment with borders. Hairpin isn’t as tricky as it looks, (and if I’ve taught you to crochet you’ll be fine).

Where? Starbucks, Fishergate, Preston

When? Thursdays 11th, 18th, 25th October 2012, 10.00am – 12.00pm

Cost? £42 for all 3 weeks, materials included and an adjustable frame to keep (introductory price)
