Join me in Colorado in April!

In just about a month, I will be heading back to the Denver area for Yarn Fest.  I can't wait to go soak up some more of that sunshine while having fun with crochet.  I really hope you can join me!  There is room in all my classes, only a few are close to being full.  The festival will be in Loveland and has classes from crochet to knitting to spinning to weaving.  The Marketplace will be stocked with tons of lovely goodies too.

We discuss the joys of blocking, the ways around frogging some of the worst mistakes (like how to move a button hole and how to cut your crochet), finishing techniques that will make your garment look store-bought and how to add beads for extra sparkle.
