About My Inspired Crochet Article

JulyCover Inspired Crochet

The article that I wrote for July’s issue of Inspired Crochet is all about how to start a crochet book group; you can see that it’s listed right there on the front page! In this article, first I explain what a crochet book group is:

“A crochet book group is a group of people who all agree to read the same craft-related book and then get together to discuss it. The books aren’t crochet pattern books but either fiction or non-fiction books that relate to crochet in some way. During the discussion they also bring their crochet work and craft together as they talk. Some crochet book groups do a CAL where they are all working on the same project during the sessions whereas others opt to work on their own individual pieces.”

Then I go on to explain in detail the benefits of being part of a crochet book group, tips for starting a crochet book group and suggested crochet books for the group to get you started. I will admit I included my own book, Crochet Saved My Life, in the suggestions but there are lots of other fiction and non-fiction suggestions as well, which you can see in the full Inspired Crochet article.
