Lace Crochet Workshop, part 1

Nov 02 Wed @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

$50

We all probably remember grandmothers or aunts who had “Antimacassars” or lace crocheted covers that protected the arms of chairs and sofas from wear and tear. This lace is created by working chains and other tall stitches to create beautiful openwork patterns. During this two-day workshop you will learn about various stitches, tension, and work on two specific projects.
In our first class, we will get acquainted with the stitches to be used and practicing tension. Crochet tension describes how loose or tight your crocheting is. It takes a little practice to keep your stitches/tension even throughout your project. The first project we be making a dishcloth using a worsted weight yarn. This size yarn and a size “H” crochet hook will make it easier to see and work the stitches.
Longtime BCHS and  Nan Pearson leads this workshop imparting over forty years of crocheting knowledge and expertise. 

Part 2 of this workshop takes place on November 9

$50 includes both workshops and all materials. Reservations are required; call 413 442 1793 or email melville@berkshirehistory.org.
This workshop is sponsored by Greylock Federal Credit Union.
