We are launching something new and wonderful to our crochet repertoire

 Crochet Retreat Saturdays

The very first one will be on Saturday 9th June, 10am - 4pm

So save this date and book your place.

Our crochet classes are really popular and it is fantastic teaching everyone all the stitches and patterns, our crochet sistas monthly social is also hugely popular and we have fun trying out new things in a more relaxed informal setting.

What I have found though is that our time is always limited and we don't have the time to finish a project in one session.

So we are scheduling a series of retreat days, which I am thinking will be a 'mash up' of our classes and our crochet social, a kind of extended crochet sistas but with lots of new techniques and learning.

We will crochet something beautiful and aim to finish it in the one day. That way you will have our crochet expert (me) on hand to help you from beginning to end 

On our very first one we will be making edgings for pillowcases, hand towels and tea towels. Here is the sort of thing I am thinking of

I am just working up the designs at the moment, and trying out different ones to find out which ones work best, more photos below of the kind of thing that I am thinking we will make, the only difference being that we will be using Little Woollies sewing machines to sew the edging on, as I believe we will get a better finish.



Let me know what you think, and reserve your space !

Nicola Cockett:

I’m more of a knitter but I do crochet too: I’d love to come along to this retreat. Lovely idea. I know the basic stitches but I sometimes need to refresh my memory when doing a project.

Hi Trudy,
The crochet retreat sounds fantastic. Please reserve me a space. I love the crocheted edgings and have always wanted to add them to pillow cases and table runners. Just my cup of tea!
