We have just finished our first Crochet for Beginners course which was led by our lovely teacher Gaelle. it was really successful and everybody learned loads.
We will be repeating the course in September but this time the sessions will be held in the evenings.
You will learn about the tools and techniques used in crochet, how to begin your crochet, choose the right yarns and hooks and how to work different techniques.
The course takes place over six, weekly sessions beginning on Friday 11 September from 6.30 pm till 8.30 pm
and costs £65.00. Gaelle provides hooks and yarns for the first session and Ammonite Yarns provides tea, coffee and biscuits.
The Beginners course is restricted to five places so either come into the shop to reserve your place with a £10.00 non-refundable deposit or phone 01443 520200 and reserve via credit card. The last course booked very quickly so don't hesitate.
Look what came in today -- lots more Drops stock. Safran, Muscat, Paris and Belle (all in the cotton edition sale) and some extra colours of Delight.
We have just re-done our window to show our 'Best of British' yarns. Come down and take a look in person.
We have also set up a corner of our shop with the Best of British. The Ammonite and the boxes below contain wonderful British Breed wool -- Ramsdale, Blue Faced Leicester and our newest yarn Wensleydale Longwool. The Wensleydale was bought with our crowdfunding money so thank you to all of you who contributed. The British yarns come in amazing colours -- they really glow.
Our home-grown yarns are beautiful and although not dirt-cheap are well priced with all of them coming in at under £5.00 for 50g. Now all of we've got to do is find space for the yarns that we moved out of the ammonite!
