Heritage Crochet Techniques: Thread Lace Crochet

Mar 11, 2023 1:30PM—4:30PM


SEFAA Center 3420 W. Hospital Ave Chamblee, GA 30341



Thread lace crochet encompasses any crochet technique you can work with fine thread and very small hooks. In this class, you’ll practice using small metal hooks for tight projects and large hooks for lacier looks and you’ll explore several different techniques including filet crochet, Irish lace, the bullion stitch, and working in the round. Since any stitch or pattern can be adapted to thread lace crochet, there are no limits to interesting applications!
