'Beginning Crochet' offered 2x Mar 18

Shake off winter doldrums by learning Beginning Crochet at the Fond du Lac Public Library. The class will be offered at 10 a.m. and repeated at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 18, in the library’s Idea Studio.

Needle arts aficionado Jan Stoegbauer will teach the very basics and some of the most-commonly used stitches. Each attendee will start a washcloth and finish it at home from a pattern they will receive in class. Each participant must bring one F, G or H crochet hook (metal preferred) and a small skein of yarn (avoid 100 percent cotton).

Crafternoon programs are free and open to adults and teens in middle school or older. Space is strictly limited. No walk-ins or under-aged children allowed. Registration is taken online only and begins at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, March 4, at the Calendar.

Upcoming Crafternoon programs are:

April 15: Beginning Knitting

May 20: Mandala Stones

June 17: Patriotic Light String

Crafternoon was inspired by a similar program at the New York Public Library that’s run by Maura Madden, who wrote, Crafternoon: A Guide to Getting Artsy and Crafty with Your Friends All Year Long.
