Want to learn to crochet, but think you're too math nerdy? Scared of math, but want to learn to crochet? No problem! Becky Johnson (of Sweetie Pie Press) is going to teach us that math can make that dull old yarn look really pretty. Becky's also a fantastic instructor so if you've never handled a hook, have no fear.

Come out to Nathalie-Roze & Co.'s beautiful backyard garden at 1015 Queen St. E. on Sunday, July 15 between 1pm and 4pm. FREE.

[note from Becky: although we will have the church of craft collection of hooks and yarns on hand, you can also feel free to bring your own (just about any size will do). ]

a couple of things...

1) in regards to that pseudosphere pictured, props should be given to jen (toronto craft alert jen) for giving me that yarn.

2) speaking of which, i am currently happily accepting donations of yarn for my growing project of hyperbolic models. my rules for this are project are (a) it must be a solid colour (b) it must be a natural fibre.

if you have any wood or bamboo crochet hooks, they're easier on my hands and i could use them. but why would you want to dispose of those? they're great!

i know the church of craft is always happy to accept donations of supplies, too.

so if you have anything that would serve my project or the church, feel free to bring it along to the workshop.

but don't, you know, worry about it or anything.

love,

becky
