Virtual crochet retreat 17th October 2020


Why miss out on a little crochet indulgence? We'll bring the retreat to you.

From the comfort of your own home you can share a day with us and the lovely Coastal Crochet aka Eleanora. We'll be bringing you two workshop sessions plus penty of time to get all your crochet questions answered,  tackle your troublesome issues and have a  chance to hear what its like to be a crochet designer.

Here' s how the day wll shape up;

10am Welcome

10:15am Workshop 1 - Mosaic Crochet with Sarah. A contemporary stitch with a modern vibe. Work on a small piece building you knowledge of the mosaic crochet technique, stitch and the pattern reading skills. This can be big enough to make a small project from.

12:45-1:15pm  Lunch (inc time to continue crocheting!)

1:15pm  Crochet top tips

1:30pm Workshop 2 - Tunisian sampler with Coastal Crochet.  Some call this afghan stitch a mixture of crochet and knitting. Work on a small sampler using 3 different Tunisian corchet stitches and colour changing techniques.

4:15pm  Q&A/Trouble shooting

4:30pm (approx) close.

Materials required:

For the mosaic crochet morning session you will need 2 colours of any DK weight yarn and your preferred crochet hook for this yarn (usually a 4mm or 5mm hook)

For the Tunisian crochet session in the afternoon you will need 3 colours of any DK weight yarn and a 5mm Tunisian hook

Places are limited and the retreat will be run using Zoom so you will need to have this downloaded onto your chosen device. Prior to the event you will be sent full log in details. Sessions will be recorded for viewing at a later time should your day be interrupted or you wish to rewatch the workshops again.

Whilst we hope to get through as many questions as possible on the day but please feel free to drop us a line beforehand so that we can make sure we  respond.
