I bought the hooks and yarn so everything was ready when five of us met at Deli cafe to begin our first project as a group.
Only one other person could crochet, which turned the meeting into a sort of beginner’s class. (I looked it up and the price for of the most popular crochet classes in Nottingham is £60. Ours is free and, by the looks of it, you learn a lot more too). It was really enjoyable.
We talked a lot, and ordered various pots of teas and far too much cake. I find it tiring doing the group, but this left me feeling mentally energised in a way I hadn’t felt in a long time. I was also genuinely impressed by how people learnt new things.
This project cost me £25 to buy the first lot of materials for. If you want to help fund it (or support the group in general) then you can donate here. Thank you!
