Crochet is enjoying a revival at the moment and is no longer confined to lace doilies and old-fashioned shawls. The explosion of indie dyers producing vibrant wool skeins in a glorious range of colours has helped this revival and there are now so many avenues for us to explore.
If you would like to share ideas with fellow crochet lovers or just take some time out to sit and crochet and chat, then do join our Crochet Group. If you have never tried to crochet before, you will still be welcome and, in the U3A spirit of sharing skills, one of the group’s participants should be able to show you how. You will be amazed at how simple and quick it is!
Beginners will usually start with a simple cotton dishcloth and then patterns will be available for you to browse through. Sessions operate on a ‘drop-in’ basis so you may register at any time to be put on the contact list to receive the latest news.
Group Convener : Jacqui Osley
The Group is continuing to meet in the convener’s garden in Elmfield Avenue, N8, weather permitting, but it is hoped that sessions can be arranged later in the Autumn in an external venue.
