Crochet is easy to learn and an inexpensive craft, and is suitable for men as well as women -- ever heard of the Crochet Dude? Seriously, come one, come all, and be enthralled!
All you need is a hook, some thread or yarn, and a pair of scissors to get started. In this introductory session I'll provide the tools and materials and teach you the basic stitches to create some sample swatches that you can use for coasters. Or frisbees. There's no pressure to "get it right" so don't worry.
I'll also present some history of Victorian crochet and we can decide what kind of projects we'd like to tackle for future meetups. I'm suggesting my house and we can provide some wine and cheese snacks, but other snackies are welcome. Bring soda if that's your thing, but we also have some awesome home-roasted coffees. One caveat: we have two cockatiels so if anyone is allergic to birds you might not be comfortable. We can put the pests -- er, I mean pets, in another room.
