Creative Crochet for beginners- CALAT Thornton Heath


Had a full workshop of about 12 people. Most were complete beginners, but a couple were returning to crochet.I had simple projects for people to try , to learn the basic stitches and get used to using a hook!



 One returner shared the beautiful crochet doilies she made many years ago
By the end everyone had learned to do at least chain stitch and double crochet.  It took that bit longer to get around to see everyone, but some progress was made, I hope!
