Saturday, May 11,  from 1-2pm:  Crochet Techniques:  Learn a variety of methods for joining granny squares and other motifs.  Invisible and decorative joins are both taught, as well as recommendations for when to use each type.  HOMEWORK For the Crochet Techniques class, the student will need to bring 2 completed granny squares, a tapestry needle, contrasting yarn to completed squares, and crochet hook to match yarn.  You will have to  make the granny squares on your own, and should be an experienced beginner.
