So, we whine,bitch and complain about crochet not being represented at various events, fiber festivals, and in local yarn stores. Here’s the rub, when they do offer crochet classes, often those classes get cancelled because of lack of sign ups…so what’s the deal?
Recently Myra Wood posted on the CLF message board that her classes had been canceled at the Oregon Flock & Fiber event to be held next weekend (not this weekend). I am so bummed! I was looking forward to seeing her, I am driving down from Camano Island, WA to Canby, OR to check out the event. I’ve heard it is fabulous. My dear friend & I are driving down to drool, and oogle over fibers, animals and yarn!
I am not a big class taker. I’ve had a few classes, including one by the fabulous Myra (and believe me you want to take her classes), and enjoyed myself. But, for me most of what is offered is stuff I have learned over trial and error…What I do want to learn is often not represented in the class lists, or even in my consciousness. I mean really, there are things out there I don’t know about that I may want to learn, I just have not heard of them!
So why don’t you take classes or go to these events? Why are we allowing the thought the crocheters are cheap, or don’t take classes etc to keep going? What is the deal? I want to know! Reply here people…
And speaking of crochet classes, Karen Whooley of KRWKnitwear Studios is offering a free trial class Crochet A Long on her website!
