Beginning/Continuing Crochet - Instructor Jo Sineath
This class teaches the basics of Crochet. Participants will learn about crochet hooks and available yarns and then the creation of foundation chains and a variety of stitches, gauge, and the finishing off of a project. As a class a simple project will be completed by learning to read a pattern and using multiple stitches. For any other individual projects, the instructor will assist in choosing a pattern of their choice and purchasing the yarn. Newcomers with no experience are welcome and can catch up.
My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was in the fourth grade. I didn’t really use the skill until my niece was born 15 years later. Thankfully, Gram was still around to give me a refresher allowing me to complete my first baby afghan. I have since completed dozens of projects for our home, as well as gifts for friends and family. My husband says that he doesn’t recognize me without a crochet hook and yarn in my hand. I have recently joined a group that knits and crochets items of clothing for World Vision, providing them for the needy, the world over. This group started as an ICL class over 20 years ago. I spent 47 years as a healthcare provider and have found crocheting a relaxing and fulfilling hobby.
