Crochet truly arrived during 2014
Crochet Design is thrilled that this wonderful textile and craft is no longer the poor relation. Crochet is:
- Limitless in its versatility
- An easy way to create textured fabrics
- A simple yet stimulating way to explore colour
If Radio 2 want their listeners to hear what crochet is, crochet has arrived!
I was interviewed on drivetime 1st October.
Crochet is a practical craft and socially friendly because:
- Quiet in company (unless you drop the hook)
- Transportable (ideal for times you are kept waiting)
- Occupies the hands (keeping you away from snacks and drinks etc)
- Therapeutic (a simple project with repetitive movements, lowers tension)
- Breaks the ice if crocheting in public (great for shy people)
- Confidence builder (you can when so many cannot!)
- Does not need a computer, mobile, or television screen
Crochet design continues to pioneer the craft. In January we have
Arnetta Kenney - world famous crochet/needlecraft expert, author, designer, consultant
for one day on Sunday 11th January 2015 at the Clarendon Hotel, Morecambe
Cost for the day is £65 plus £9 for a buffet lunch. The following day is a one-day workshop with me, Pauline.
Diploma students have a £10 discount on the schedule one-day courses.
