Yes, You Can Crochet

Yes, You Can Crochet

Published: January 09, 2020

Do you ever wish an aunt or grandmother had taught you how to knit, crochet, or embroider when you were young? If you didn’t have that experience, or if you did and it gave you a longstanding appreciation for fiber arts, you’ll want to join us for the next installment of our Craftsman Collaborative series.

Local artisan Maggie Lou Alice Carter will talk about her experience with crocheting, provide instruction about the basics of proper technique, and walk us through creating our own version of a quick crocheted bookmark that even beginners can tackle and proudly complete.

The Craftsman Collaborative program focuses on a different artistic pursuit each month and shares the interests and passions of local men and women. It encourages county residents to share a love of crafting, art, ideas, and talent through ongoing conversation, networking, and creativity.

If you’d like to showcase your own love of crafting for an upcoming program, please contact the library at 828.466.5108. (Look for presentations on taxidermy, moonshine, and farming in the new year!)

The crochet program takes place at 6 pm on Tuesday, January 14 at the Conover Branch Library. Registration is required; please call 828.466.5108. You’re welcome to bring your own yarn and crochet needles, but supplies will be available.
