There’s still room in both classes. The beginner’s class begins tomorrow. Don’t miss out.

Saturday March 5th, 12th, & 19th 2 – 4:
• Crochet in Three Sessions by the notable Peter Franzi! Class fee: $65. This is an incredible opportunity to learn the foundations and beyond of crochet with designer and instructor, Peter Franzi. Peter has an article which appears in each issue of Interweave Crochet and his designs can be found in major publications. We are fortunate he resides in the Bay Area and is available for local teaching. This special class will be held in three parts. During your first session you will learn at least 6 of the basic stitches including: single, double, triple crochet, chain, and slip stitch. Starting in your second class you will begin learning pattern reading by making a granny square. And, in your final session you will begin making a scarf and will enjoy a “yarn course” in which Peter will teach you the best choices for yarn for garments and other items. If you’ve had crochet on your mind and would like to learn do NOT miss this amazing course! Sign up early to secure your seat!

March 16th, April 13th, & May 11th 6 – 8:
• Top Down in the Round Crochet Sweater with Peter Franzi. Class fee: $65. Materials: you may choose a yarn in fingering, sport or DK weight. Prereq: Swatch with chosen yarn and hook appropriate for yarn. Come in on March 2 at 6 to consult with Peter about choosing a yarn which will allow us time to order your yarn should it be necessary. What a great workshop to expand your crochet skills! For your first session you will be working the yoke to the chest, the second session will be beginning sleeves, and the last session will concentrate on proper finishing of your garment.
