The Crochet Club 2012

Following the success of The Crochet Club 2011 - we are proud to announce that we are now ready to receive applications to join the club in 2012. Members of the crochet club will receive all yarns, beads and patterns needed to create the exclusive project which incorporates many crochet techniques and could act as an excellent learning tool for those wanting to enhance their existing skills and learn new methods of working a crochet fabric.

The design for 2012 has been inspired by traditional lace crochet and patchwork design. The project is made up of both conventional and contemporary crochet pieces which, when put together, create a lovely piece which could be used as a small bed cover or throw. The colour palette is feminine and pretty with pieces widely based on floral designs. Techniques used include beading, lace crochet and colour changing.

Club members will be sent a kit containing all yarn and beads in February 2012. Patterns will be sent over the course of the subsequent 6 months via email and club members will also be supported by a dedicated blog which will be updated frequently with tips, techniques and mini master-classes for those in need of a little help and encouragement.
Membership to the club will be limited so that the piece remains exclusive and the patterns will not be published elsewhere. All yarn used will be from the Rowan Cotton Glace range and all beads will be from the Debbie Abrahams range. Membership of the club is open to everyone regardless of where in the world you live and in 2011 we had 250 members from all corners of the world including China, New Zealand, Australia, Spain, France, Germany, Norway and the UK. We have tried really hard to keep the price of membership as low as possible, but the total price will depend on where in the world you live due to variations in postal charges.
