National Crochet Month
Countless crochet groups, popular retailers, yarn shops, and members of CGOA (Crochet Guild of America) are chatting about this timeless art. WOW! Now I want to climb on my rooftop and shout “I Love to Crochet”. OK, maybe that is a little extreme, so I will share with you how I am spreading the news.
Teaching: I taught beginning crochet for several years, which was personally rewarding. Last year I tried to teach my mother and lets just say she would rather read a book (and it’s not a crochet book). LOL However, I received an email from a friend asking me to teach her. Need I tell you what my answer was? ;o) If you would like to teach someone, the Craft Yarn Council has a helpful teaching guide. Click Here > Crochet Guide
Write a blog post: Last week I searched Handmade Artists for crochet artists and found enough artists to write a weekly blog post for more than one year. However, there is only 31 days in March… I better get started. LOL My first post is up – Celebrating National Crochet Month
Crochet for Charity: I belong to a charity group that crochets needed items for hospitals and women’s shelters. You can find all sorts of charities that need crochet hats, scarves, blankets…etc. Amy Solovay from About.com has a list of charities for your convenience.
