Join me at the Northwest Needle Market this September as I walk shops through several classes to help them bring in more crocheters!
Bring Crocheter's Into Your Shop - Learn from award winning Teacher and designer Karen Ratto-Whooley what it takes to get crocheters in your shop. In 90 minutes Karen will go over why you want crocheters to visit your shop, how to get them to visit, and how to find the right yarns and employees. The last 30 minutes will include a Q&A session.
Cuff Down Crochet Socks - Intimidated by knitted socks? Learn to make easy crochet socks from the cuff down. Use your favorite sock yarn and learn a new stitch to create a softer fabric with toes and heels that are a bit heavier to prevent wearing out quickly. Learn the heel flap and gusset way of creating socks as taught in Karen’s book, “I Can’t Believe I’m Crocheting Socks”. They are made all in one piece with just 2 ends to weave in when you are done. In the class you will be making a child size sock due to time constraints.
Tunisian 101 - Tunisian Crochet is the hottest thing happening in the industry. This is the perfect class for knitters to learn to crochet! Learn the 3 basic Tunisian stitches: Tunisian simple stitch, Tunisian knit stitch and the Tunisian purl stitch. I will teach you tips on how to prevent curling, ending oﬀ, and picking up stitches.
