Spring/Summber 2006 Crochet Classes: Stamford, CT

Store:  KnitTogether
Location:  111 High Ridge Rd, Stamford, CT
Contact: (203) 324-YARN

" ‘Some 53 million people know how to crochet and knit’, says The Craft Yarn Council of America”. And, reportedly, for every one knitter there are three who enjoy crocheting.

Crochet is hip; it's the fashion rave; it's now! And interestingly enough, it's one of the last remaining fiber arts that still must be created by hand. With its liberating qualities you can change fiber, hooks, stitches, directions, or dimensions anywhere in your work! (And it's faster than knitting too!)
