Loads Of Crochet

I have been busy giving crochet workshops in Denmark and busy in my regular crochet classes here in Ireland too. So busy I have not been able to get my web page updated which is a disgrace as I have loads of news to share.

However, I will not be able to get to that until tomorrow afternoon, but I can tell you that it involves the mention of an article in the current edition of the new UK magazine SIMPLY CROCHET in which I’m delighted to feature – have you seen the magazine? It’s bright and cheerful and if nothing else, check it out for the paper quality alone – having a background in printing – I’m a sucker for nice paper!

I will also roll out my new regular classes as well as making suggestions for one day workshops that might be of interest to you. And then there is a whole other crochet venture which involves sales of select pieces of my crochet too.

In the meantime, I share a couple of photos form the workshops I did at the wonderful library in Skive, Denmark. As you can see, they were a busy lot! Unfortunately, I forgot to take photos of the beginner class on the Friday. They were a great and came through in flying colours with a great grasp of more than just the basics on the day.
