We are a group of fiber artists of all ages, levels and backgrounds, who meet on a regular basis to practice our crafts. Our goals are to have fun, encourage, and inspire one another!
If you are a beginner crocheter or knitter, you are more than welcome to join in the fun! Please note that our meetings are not classes, and we will not be able to teach you. However, below is a list of resources to get you started. I would recommend that you check them out to get an idea of what is involved, see if it’s for you, and gain some practice in the quiet at home. Then join us at meetings to practice!
Looking forward to meeting you to share the love of yarn!
Recommended beginner resources:
• YouTube: search for “crochet/knitting for absolute beginners” - that’s how I learned! Some favorite channels are: Simply in stitches (knitting), Very Pink Knits, Simplydaisy (crochet), Crochet Hooks You, HappyBerry Crochet
• Craftsy.com: high quality paid-for classes in crochet, knitting and many other crafts. I’ve taken several and was never disappointed.
• Brick and mortar stores in Dubai: Craftland have classes and practice sessions for both crochet and knitting. YarnsDubai also have started offering classes.
