Crochet is creative and fun! Keeping up with the trends is easy once you know the basic techniques.

This class is designed for people who have little-to-no crochet experience. Ambitious beginners are Welcome!
All supplies will be provided for you. Each project will use approximately 3 oz of yarn, a 5mm crochet hook, a yarn needle, and a button. All of these supplies will be yours to keep!
● Crocheting is good for mental health because it requires mindfulness. As you crochet, you need to pay attention to each stitch, the movement of your hook or needle, your breath, your stitch count.
●“When we practice mindfulness, our thoughts tune into what we’re sensing in the present moment rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future”
