Curious About Crochet

One of the greatest things about crochet is that you don’t have to invest in fancy, new materials or find room in your house to store a bunch of equipment. With just a simple hook, a skein of yarn, and a comfy place to sit, you can begin enjoying all the benefits this craft provides. In the Beginner Class, we’ll get you started with a few basic stitches and show you how to read a pattern. Please bring to class a size K crochet hook and one skein of 4-ply yarn in a light color.  The Beginner 2 class is for those who know the basic stitches and can read a basic pattern.  You will learn stitches to crochet stand-up flowers and make different stitches for afghans and pillows. Bring your “yarn stash” (especially green for the leaves) and hooks.  Instructor: Berniece Wilkins. Ages 50+.  Registration deadline: September 4.  Min. 4. Max. 5.

Crop till you Drop

Tuesdays, 1:00-3:00 pm

Community Center, 233 W. Main St.

More people every year are discovering the joy of scrapbooking! When “scrapbookers” get together to scrapbook it is called “cropping.” This hobby is relaxing while at the same time creates unique family and friend albums to keep and share. During this time, you will have the opportunity to meet other “scrapbookers” and make new friends with similar interests. We will share ideas and work on our own projects; however, there will be some supplies available. If you’ve been considering scrapbooking for a while but were intimidated by the prospect of starting, this class is for you! With a bit of practice, you’ll soon be creating scrapbooks that will be the envy of all your friends! Ages 50+. There is no need to call ahead just drop in! Drop-in fee: $1
