Even Craftsy employees have gotten down to the business of learning how to crochet!
While our Craftsy employees are generally crafty, not everyone here at home base is familiar with the art of crochet. So, Linda Permann recently led a workshop at Craftsy headquarters and taught a group of enthusiastic Craftsy employees the wonderful and addicting activity of crocheting a chain. The Beginner's Guide to Crochet starts with crocheting a chain. Remember, even though the chain is just the starting point of crocheting, don’t underestimate it! You can crochet a chain to use as a bow on gifts, hair tie, or keep going and wrap several layers to make a necklace. The possibilities are endless!
The workshop drew people from all areas of the company (even Craftsy founder Josh Scott learned something new!), and everyone enjoyed picking up this new skill.
