About

What could be better than creativity and cookies?

In collaboration with The Cookie People…

Did you know that you can crochet pretty much anywhere? It’s a great exercise in creativity and mindfulness and all it takes is a single tool and some yarn which need almost no space. To prove that point, we’re creating a series of crochet workshops in places all over the Raleigh area, from parks, to coffee houses, to cookie bakeries!

For this workshop, come spend some time with Suzy Hasanin, lifelong crochet artist and all-around wonderful person. Suzy believes that if you can crack the code to the fundamentals, you can crochet anything and she wants to show you how. You’ll be given your own ball of yarn and crochet hook (to keep!) and beginners will be taught the fundamental building blocks of turning crochet stitches into patterns. If you happen to be a veteran, Suzy can offer some great expert pointers and project suggestions to take your craft to the next level.

We will be hosting this experience at the adorable bakeshop of The Cookie People: a local, family-owned, small business run by two of the sweetest people around that make the best cookies in town. Learn about their made-from-scratch cookies and choose some to try from their great selection of flavors: Lemonade, Peanut Butter Cup, Molasses Crinkle, Butterscotch Caramel, and more!

*Ticket includes a crochet tool, a ball of yarn, two large specialty cookies of your choosing, and a drink
