Answering your questions . . .

How do the crochet-a-longs work?

Each Saturday morning during the crochet-a-long you’ll receive an email with what to do during the week. You can either download the crochet pattern or follow the detailed video tutorials (right and left handed) where I show you exactly what to do.

Pop into our Facebook Group anytime to share your progress and ask for help, and come along to our live Crochet Help Sessions for one-on-one support.

 

What if I have questions or need help?

Crochet Help Sessions: each Sunday at 3:30pm (Melbourne time) during February I’ll answer your questions and help you one-on-one via zoom. Come along to Sunday Crafternoon afterwards for more crocheting fun.

Facebook Group: get help anytime in our Facebook group.

 

I’m left handed, is it suitable for me?

Yes, there will be left and right handed video tutorials available.

 

I’m not in Australia, can I still join?

Of course! While there’s ample time for our Australian customers to order their kits before the crochet-a-long starts, if you’re not in Australia you can still join in by ordering the online crochet pattern and then getting your tools and materials locally.

 

 

I’m looking forward to helping you during the crochet-a-longs!

With love, Lynda.
