Get crocheting tips at Fort Bend County Libraries’ Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library on Saturday, February 9, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., in the Meeting Room of the library, located at 8100 FM 359 South in Fulshear.
The “Crochet Workshop: Edgings” is a hands-on adult craft class for individuals aged 16 and above. No previous crochet experience is necessary.
Library staff member Marie Picon will demonstrate how to apply decorative crochet edgings to blankets and other items. Learn multiple techniques and get ideas for using these skills in a variety of projects.
Those attending the program will master multiple stitches, practice crocheting in the round, and receive ideas for using their new skills in simple projects.
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.
