Tunisian Crochet 101 ~ Saturday, 9 May 2015

(Beginner) 1:00 – 3:00 pm
$45.00
Instructor: Lynda Forgues

Kinda like knitting with a very long crochet hook. Kinda. Tunisian Crochet (aka Afghan Crochet) is often described as a hybrid of knitting and crochet. But however you choose to describe it, it sure is fun! And relaxing. And unique.

Learn the basics of this unusual and increasingly popular technique as well as a few tips and tricks and you’ll be sure to mystify and delight the uninitiated with the beautifully distinctive results. (No doubt, you’ll enjoy them too!)

No previous crochet or knitting experience required.

All materials included in the cost.

Knit and purl using a crochet hook? That’s right! Without even knowing how to knit you can produce fabric that looks exactly like knitting (at least on the good side). It’s sneaky like that!

Instructor Bio ~ Lynda Forgues, also known as “The Snowflake Lady”, has been crocheting for more decades than she’d care to admit to—ever since, as a teenager, her mother passed on the skills learned in a crochet class at night school. From that point on Lynda was, as you might say, “hooked”.
