Having talked about getting creative for years I have finally taken the plunge to get my craft on and booked into a three part introductory crochet course at Threads and More Indooroopilly.
I arrived for my first class feeling somewhat nervous but was warmly greeted immediately by class leader, Anissa, who ushered me to one of the creating tables. Assisted by Anne, Anissa showed my fellow newbie crocheters and I how to create the traditional granny square. I seemed to take forever to get the hang of it but Anissa and Anne patiently examined my work pointing out where I'd gone wrong and helping me catch up. In the following two weeks we were taught different stitches, tips and tricks all in a warm supportive atmosphere.
Threads and More offers a range of knitting, crocheting and felting classes as well as times to work on your current project with other crafters. The shop sells a range of beautifully coloured natural yarns, felting supplies, needles, hooks and anything you might need for a yarn related creative project. Plus you can get a lovely coffee, tea and sweet treat to sustain you as you wrestle with crafts our grandmothers did without thinking.
The shop has such a great atmosphere of women sharing old time creative skills, news and giving each other lots of support that I was reminded of being with my mother and grandmother years ago as they tried to teach me various skills.I was so impressed I've signed up for a more advanced crochet class and a felting class.
