Can I learn to crochet at a Charlotte Crocheters' meeting?
Yes, if you would like to learn to crochet, then you can learn at the meetings. We have free instruction for anyone who wants to learn beginning crochet, advanced crochet, or pattern reading. I will help anyone read their patterns but I don't guarantee that I can decipher all patterns but I'll give it the old college try!!
Since there is
are there classes and what do I need to do to enroll?
My name is Sue and I am the one doing the teaching.
It is best to let me know if you are coming in so that I can be
prepared if you are wanting to learn to crochet. I recommend
using a size 'H', 'I', or 'J' hook and a light colored solid
worsted weight yarn.
I will sit with you one on one as much as I can during the
meeting depending on how many are needing help since it is not a
formal class. We have several people that are willing to help
any and everyone that needs help with their crocheting and / or
patterns as well.
I believe that crochet is not hard to do if you have patience, are
able to practice a lot, and have a willingness to learn. The
hardest part is learning to hold the yarn in one hand while
learning to work a hook in the other and then get them to work
together. Once you can do that, then everything else will
fall into place pretty quick. Each stitch is pretty much just
a variation of another so once you get the hang of a single crochet
stitch, it gets easier after
