I mentioned earlier this month that I have an article in the July ’13 issue of Inspired Crochet Digital Magazine that’s all about crochet book clubs – what they are, how to start one, what to read … One of the things I discuss in the article is the benefits of being a part of a crochet book club.
Here is a brief look at eight of the benefits that you may experience as a member of a crochet book club:
- You’ll get a chance to meet and regularly spend time with creative people who also like to read crafty books.
- You’ll have motivation to read some of the books that may be on your book list as well as to work on some of the projects that you’ve wanted to crochet.
- You will be exposed to new things in both crochet and reading. This expands your world in many ways.
- The members of your club can be a great resource when you need help with a crochet project so this offers practical help as well!
- Some people are intimidated by book clubs because it makes them anxious to just sit around talking about a book. Having crochet to work on during the session can relieve this anxiety and make the book group more comfortable.
- Likewise, some people are intimidated by craft groups because they are afraid they won’t know what to talk about with this group of people. The book is the common factor here.
- The process may help you discover new things about crafting and what it means to you.
- Your crochet book group will likely end up being a great source of inspiration, information and support.
