A special workshop will be held for teens and adults who want to learn how to crochet.
The first in-person meeting will be held at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, April 11. Subsequent meetings will occur on Thursday, April 13, and Wednesdays April 19 and 26, at the Palisades Library Community Room, 861 Alma Real Drive.
Workshops will last about an hour and a half. If possible, participants are asked to bring a larger crochet hook (6.8mm) and bulky-weight yarn.
Extra hooks and yarn will be provided during the workshop. Those who attend this free workshop are asked to bring water and patience. Participants are warned that “crocheting is very exciting to learn, but it takes practice to master specific stitches.”
The program will only focus on crocheting. A teen volunteer will be teaching the basics (double crochet, chain).
After participants have learned the specifics, simple hats and scarves will be made that will be donated to PATH, a local organization that helps those in need.
The main purpose of the project is to create an environment in which the community is working together to help others.
Open to all ages, especially if one already has experience with “needles,” even if it is with knitting.
Note: This is a different program than the Pali Knitting and Crocheting Group. Those participants already know how to knit and crochet, and this month will meet at 2 p.m. on April 12 and April 26, at the library community room. They meet to share individual projects and for companionship.
This a great idea and I hope the library repeats it with advanced notice. Thank you!
