Perfect class for beginners; perfect teacher
This a great introductory class for beginners to crochet! I can’t recommend Lisa, the teacher, enough. She is a fabulous, very patient, and very encouraging teacher. Having previously taken a similar class at another college, I struggled awfully in that class and felt defeated. Four years later, I’ve picked up the class again and I’m hooked. I get it now and can happily crochet away while relaxing in front of the TV in the evening; a perfect activity for the darker, colder nights when we withdraw to our cosy sofas. Pick up those hooks and yarn, you won’t regret it…
