    I've wanted to learn how to crochet for years and I heard about Clair's classes through a friend. Clair has a LOT of patience and I really enjoyed her beginner class. I learnt how to make a granny square which I was really happy about! The class is small so Clair had the time to move around to each of us as we needed her help. Thanks so much Clair for such an informative and interactive class.

She dedicates her creative energy to crafting an array of wearable and utilitarian items, including cardigans, shawls, beanies, tops, pants, baby clothes, scarves, bags, floor rugs, baskets, and blankets.
