Starting in April, classes will run 6.30-8pm.
Bring a project of your choice to work on. Do you need help starting a new project, finishing a WIP (work in progress), or some fresh ideas for something new to work on?
A new twist to Open Project classes: to celebrate Spring and Summer seasons, part of each class will be devoted to learning to crocheting flowers. With a new flower each week, soon you can collect your very own bouquet ;). Additionally, during each class, students will have the opportunity to learn new fancy stitch. You are welcome to join in on the learning or to work on your own project.
