If anyone from the Intermediate class has a specific technique they'd like covered, please let me know and I will schedule it in.

Each class costs £35.

Practice wools and hooks will be provided and a chance to see some work in progress from some of my projects for the new Baby Crochet book I'm working on.

There will be a free pattern for each session included.

Hand Piecing Hexagon Workshop
This will run from 9.30 to 12.30
We'll cover cutting out the paper templates, fabrics and learning how to piece them together. It's a hand sewing technique and is suitable for both beginners and intermediate sewers.
If you'd like to book for any of these workshops, please email as soon as possible as places are limited.

I really hope you can come, it's a great opportunity to spend some time learning to crochet or sewing either with a friend or on your own with other like-minded people in a relaxed and friendly environment.

Classes will be held in Radlett, Herts.

How serendipitious that I should have found your blog! I'm currently working on your Springtime Throw from your lovely book which Santa brought me. Would it be ok if I posted a link to this post about your classes on the Ravelry Discussion Board 'Crochet Liberation Front'? The Americans seem to be beating us Brits to it as far as classes are concerned! lol
