Several people at the fair were wondering where to go to learn how to crochet. Members of Crochet Twin Cities are always happy to help out, so feel free to come to a meeting or meet-up. For more formal instruction, there are several places which offer classes.
Below are two yarn shops that are offering classes this fall. The schedules may not be posted yet, so if you don't see an upcoming date, feel free to call the shop and ask.
All About Yarn (Coon Rapids)
Offers Beginning Crochet with 8 hours of instruction.
Darn Knit Anyway (Stillwater)
Offers a Crash Course Crochet for beginners. They also offer Basic Amigurumi and Queen Anne's Lace Scarf classes.
Please note, it's a good idea to pre-register if you are interested. Classes with low enrollment are subject to cancellation. Please check policies of the individual shops.
This is NOT an exhaustive list, nor is it endorsement of the classes. Just some ideas to get you started.
