My crochet class went well last Saturday and my three friends seemed to really enjoy themselves. I was so pleased that they all managed to learn the basic stitches and even had the beginnings of a granny square to take home. I used Saturday as a trial run as I am thinking about running crochet workshops from home. I set my crafty space up as though it was a real workshop, with samples of crochet projects, books and magazines for browsing and inspiration. In advance I had hooked some crochet samples of the basic core stitches which was very useful. I also had some printed information which was kindly given to me by Chrissie.
Chrissie has been running crochet workshops for a while and was able
to give me lots of useful tips and advice and has kindly shared her
workshop lesson plans with me. I am always so amazed at the friendship
and support that is offered by the wonderful blogging community.
We also managed to consume quite a lot of coffee and cake amidst the chatter and of course crochet tuition.
I was so pleased with the crochet samplers that everyone managed to produce and the little granny squares..........
by the success of Saturday I am just putting the finishing touches to a
flyer advertising three x 2hr workshops in March. Please keep your
fingers crossed that I have some people sign up for them, I think I will
advertise on face book as well - you can only try.
Talk soon x
