Carolina Fiber Fest is one of my favorite events of the year and it’t right in my back yarn! How awesome is that?

This year the event is taking place on the 10th and 11th of April (that’s a Friday and Saturday  if you’re wondering!).

Last year I taught a bunch of knitting classes, the WWII Magic Socks was a favorite and the class quickly filled up. However, people really wanted crochet classes…so the organizer asked if I would be interested in teaching some crochet classes AND I SAID YES!!

I am teaching FOUR classes all about crochet! How exciting is that?

Here is a breakdown of my classes…just click on the photos to be taken to the sign up page!

The cost of each class is just $45 for the Early Bird price which has been extended for a week! Make sure you don’t miss out on these amazing classes!

Sole-ful Stitches

Socks aren’t just for knitters! That’s right…you can crochet socks!  They are quick to stitch and with some practice a pair can take you less than 6 hours! In this class, crochet designer and instructor Rohn Strong, will teach you how to work foundational stitches, ribbing, working in the round, extended stitches, how to work both a heel flap and short row heel, and even how to shape the toe for a personalized fit!

This class is great for beginners (you should as least know how to make a chain and single crochet).

Materials To Bring: Students will need to bring 1 skein sock yarn, wound and ready to work from and a hook to match! If needed I can always provide this!

Crocheters are famous for their love of crafting for a cause. Whether Chemo Caps, NICU hats, Prayer Shawls, or Teddy Bears each project is made with love and thought put into each stitch. In this class we will examine how to best work with these charities and organizations.

We will also focus on choosing yarns, washing/blocking our projects, sample projects, the Do’s and Don’ts of Charity Crafting. Lastly, we will take a look at some of crochet designer and instructor, Rohn Strong’s favorite organizations to help out!
