Fun Class - Crochet?!?
Created By: Gwen Curtis

In 7th grade (1970) we had a little fun class for 20 minutes at the end of the day. Every six weeks we chose a new class. When I saw that crochet was one of the classes offered I was thrilled. I had always wanted to learn how. When I saw who the teacher was I wasn't quite as enthusiastic. She had been my 4th grade teacher and was known as the strictest teacher in the school. I talked my best friend into taking the class with me. She was NOT very happy about it. We were shown how to make lace with size 30 crochet thread (TINY!!) and we had to make two lengths and attached them to pillow cases for our grade in the class. I loved it and got mine done and ended up making my friend's as well. (She's never even attempted to crochet since!) The only problem was that we were shown what to do but not taught how to read directions. I had lace on every pillow case I owned for years and I would go to flea markets and craft shows and buy something crocheted to look at so that I could make it.

I finally taught myself how to read directions about 6 years later. I had bought a book called Crochet For The Home and really wanted to make one of the projects. I ended up making it after many months of trial & error & tears. It was a crocheted basket of flowers that you framed. You actually used the six strands of embroidery thread (lots of colors available) and 32 years later it still hangs in my bedroom! I later realized as I became better at reading and understanding crochet directions that this was probably the most advanced project in the entire book! Gwen Curtis, Odessa, FL
