I’m teaching six of my favorite crochet topics at the end of this July, in Manchester, New Hampshire. The occasion is the Crochet Guild of America’s annual national conference AND its 20th anniversary!
Each of the classes listed below is three hours long, with a break halfway through. That break is a good thing because these classes are more in depth and thorough – even for advanced crocheters – than the usual classes available locally. For class descriptions and images, click the CGOA link above, or go to the Knit and Crochet Show site here.
The first two classes I’ll be teaching focus on two types of Tunisian crochet lace, diagonal meshes and classic filet nets. Both of them are scheduled on Thursday, July 24th:
- T100C ~ Tunisian Eyelet Meshes: How to Turn Tss Into Lace (9 am – noon)
- T200C ~ Tunisian Filet Lace: Skill Building Basics (2 pm – 5 pm)
The third and fourth two classes I’ll be teaching each focus on a special stitch type and all that you can do with it: Star Stitches, and Lover’s Knots. Both of them are scheduled on Friday, July 25th:
- F100C ~ A Star Stitch for Every Purpose (9 am – noon)
- F200C ~ 21st Century Love Knot Adventures (2 pm – 5 pm)
My fifth and sixth classes are both about Slip Stitch Crochet: and intro class and then a shaping/special effects class. Both of them are scheduled on Saturday, July 26th:
S101C ~ Introduction to Slip Stitch Crochet Technique (9 am – noon)
S200C ~ Slip Stitch Shapes & Shaping Effects (2 pm – 5 pm)
I’ve also done newsletter issues on all of these topics. You can see the most recent ones listed in the Vashti’s Crochet Inspirations Newsletter archive.
