    Enjoyed this podcast, I love kids craft. What I am intresting in are Craft Retreats. How do you plan one? Do Lion Brand do Craft Retreats? What types of projects would you do on a CR? I’d like to hear more about that.

  • Harriett A Bromell

    Oh, I forgot, maybe in another episode of your podcast, could you talk about the Crochet Along. To hear about other crocheter’s progress. I know it’s a blog on it. But I’d be intrested to hear what the crocheter’s will do with their finished projects.

    Hi Harriett,

    Lion Brand doesn’t have craft retreats, but if you do a little searching on Google, there are quite a few websites with articles about how to plan a CR and what kind of activities you might do. You may also want to listen to episode 17, in which we talk about crafting in groups.

    As for the CAL, we’ll certainly talk about it, but the Lion Brand Notebook is the best resource, as you can leave a comment on the posts to ask questions like what other crocheters will do with their projects, and other participants can answer.

    Hope that helps!
