Learn Crocheting Basics At Library Program  

Learn the basics of crocheting at Fort Bend County Libraries’ Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library on Saturday, April 21, beginning at 9:30 a.m,. in the Meeting Room of the library, located at 8100 FM 359 South in Fulshear.

In this hands-on adult craft class, “Introduction to Crocheting,” library staff member Marie Picon will describe essential tools, materials, and techniques used for crocheting. Learn about the different yarns that can be used for varying effects, and how crochet hooks differ from other types of needlework tools. Those attending the program will begin by making a simple square. Get ideas for making a variety of items, such as scarves, bags, or blankets.

Crochet hooks and yarn for the class will be provided thanks to the generous support of the Friends of the Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library. Proceeds from the Friends of the Library book sales and annual membership dues help to underwrite the costs of special programming and various cultural events at the library.

Samples of the library’s instructional books, crafting magazines, and websites on the various sewing arts will be available.

The program is free and open to the public. Seating is limited, however, and reservations are required.
