Learn to crochet a market bag
Market bags look great and are surprisingly easy and inexpensive to make. Join us and learn how to make one yourself!
Market bags. We all love them and we all use them! They look great and are surprisingly easy and inexpensive to make. What's more...they're fun to crochet.
In this class with Jane you'll learn to make our roomy market bag, including how to modify it for size. Quick and easy to make, market bags are a fantastic Christmas present or teacher gift! Alternately you can bring along your own crochet bag pattern and we'll help you get started on it.
We’ll also talk about different styles of bags and how you can adapt the patterns to get the bag you want.
Your class fee includes the pattern for the market bag pictured.
Suitable for advanced beginners.
What to bring: your yarn (DK / 8ply cotton is preferred) and crochet hook to match + your own pattern if that's your preference
Cost: $50 You're also entitled to 10% off any purchases made in store on the day.
If you're planning on purchasing your yarn for the class please arrive at least 20 minutes prior to the class start time.
Your teacher: Jane Downey
Inspired by her grandmother, who would crochet intricate tablecloths without even referring to a pattern, Jane learned to crochet as a teen and has been crocheting now for over 30 years. Jane is a member of the Knitters' Guild of NSW and has taught crochet both for Guild meetings and at the Guild's camp, as well as at several yarn stores in Sydney. Jane has won prizes for her crochet at both the Sydney Royal Easter Show and the St Ives Show. Jane loves crochet because of the variety of projects it lends itself to, and because it's a lot easier to fudge than knitting (mostly!).
