Despite the web pages having not been refreshed for 4 months, Crochet Design is still operating. The Diploma, its assessors, and all connected with the company have been active behind the scenes, as enrolled students have continued to send in their work to be assessed.
Two workshops were run between lockdown and taking the greatest care to follow all regulations with washing, spacing, hand gel and when necessary wearing face masks. The bi-monthly newsletter was issued and sent to the relevant people. Hard copies had hand-written envelopes as Helen who does a lot of the administrative work for Crochet Design could not get to the office due to the travel restrictions.
During this period four more of the 10 vintage books have inserts with up-to-date information regarding materials, and explanations of any unclear passages. These will be added to the “Items to be Purchased” page next time.
Pauline Turner’s new book “The Art of Tunisian crochet” has been completed to the point where it is now at the typesetters. It is scheduled to be on the shelves in hardback form late summer, early autumn.
