Welcome to Crochet Design
Crochet Design is the only known company whose founder gives a money back guarantee ensuring you learn the technique requested when you enrol for a one-day workshop.
Pauline Turner really appreciates the wide range of abilities with those attending a workshop, from beginners to Diploma graduates. There is also a chance to attend a weekend workshop in Morecambe or a residential longer stay crochet fun day at Higham Hall. You may find her taking workshops elsewhere – check the Calendar of Events.
The Morecambe weekend workshops give you a chance to get on with a project and get help if necessary plus learning new techniques. The 2018 October workshop covered triangles, beading, bullion stitches, and cutting crochet (yes you can if you know how). The next weekend workshop is in April 2019 and will offer demonstrations on Tunisian crochet, Irish roses, 2-colour crochet and Aran-style crochet.
2018 Has Been Special
Crochet is no longer the poor relation of needlecrafts. More people want to crochet, as we can see through facebook and social media. Once you get ‘hooked’ you get a thirst for more knowledge. Long before social media existed, Pauline Turner knew it could be difficult for people to learn modern innovatory ways to crochet and began writing modern easy-to-follow instructions. Having books published prompted her to began a distance learning course the ‘Diploma in Crochet’ soon to become and International Diploma.
2018 saw Pauline receive two honours for her services to crochet. These happened in July when she was inducted into the Hall of Fame and received life membership to the Crochet Guild of America. These added to the two she already possessed - Honorary Licentiate of the City and Guilds and Life membership to the Knitting and Crochet Guild.
