Learn to crochet at the museum

| January 23, 2013

COSHOCTON – Three Intermediate classes in crocheting will be offered at the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum on the first Saturday of the month, beginning Feb. 2.

Participants will begin a new project in each class. A pattern and tips on how to read the pattern will be included. Classes run from 9 a.m. to noon. Participants should bring a crochet hook and a skein or two of worsted yarn – acrylic, wool or a blend. The class is informal and fun. The coffee pot will be on.

The instructor, Jessie Tubbs, has more creative ideas than hours in the day. She has made a name for herself making whimsical animal hats, which can be viewed on her business’s Facebook page, Hooked on Hats and more.

Topics for each month are:

Feb. 2: The Ripple Scarf: Learn to make a zigzag stitch while you make a ripple scarf. This is also a popular design for Afghans.

March 2: Stitch-Sampler Bag. Practice old and new stitches while you make this bag. A range of bag styles will be offered, such as market, purse and clutch.

April 6: Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize! Have fun as you learn to make hearts, stars, flowers, snails and jewelry.

Cost is $9/class or all three for $24. (Friends of the Museum, $1 off each class.) Enter the museum at the back door on the lower level. To register, contact the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum at 622-8710 or e-mail [email protected] The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is located at 300 N. Whitewoman St.
