Crocheting, Knitting and Needlepoint are terrific ways to unwind and relax while creating something handmade and beautiful. Students will learn the basics of needlepoint and such stitches like Cross stitch, Half Cross stitch, Basketweave, Box stitch, Diamond stitch and more. In needlepoint, students will start out with a small canvas and, with practice and proficiency, move on to designing their own creation if desired and time allows. Additionally, students can opt to learn to crochet and knit using needles, a loom or even their fingers! There are endless creative stitches to learn to make scarves, hats, pillows and more! This class is designed for beginner and intermediate crocheters, knitters, and stitchers. Simple crochet and knit stitches will be taught and students can advance at their own pace. More advanced stitches, patterns, and projects will be taught to meet varying skill levels.

Crocheting, Knitting and Needlepoint are creative hobbies that can be done anywhere (think waiting rooms and airports). With so many stitches to learn and projects to make it can be a lifetime hobby. Students can continue at their own pace and level in session two, if desired.
