How to Crochet for Beginners

Athens crochet classes at the Winterville Center


Crocheting can be a relaxing hobby that can produce beautiful handmade items.

Crochet can look intimidating, but it is fairly easy to learn and start making items for yourself or for gifts.

Some crocheters are creating handmade items for charity. Others are "yarn bombing", or crocheting covers for trees, benches, and other outdoor spaces.

If you would like to learn more about crochet, or are looking for a community of fiber crafters, come visit the Threadworks Crafting Club every Tuesday morning at 9:00 a.m in the kitchen of the Winterville Center. Coffee and snacks available for a $1 donation. Winterville is in Athens-Clarke County, Georgia.
