Easy and Fun Ideas to Promote CrochetBy Rachel Choi – 10 Comments
Crocheting has been passed down from generation to generation. While the basics of crochet stay the same, new techniques have emerged along with even more creative projects. As time goes on, it is important to make sure that crocheting continues to grow. Crocheting should not become a hobby that is overshadowed. Here are some easy and fun ideas that you can use to promote crochet within your community:
Crochet in public. People love seeing others crochet in public. Have you ever tried it? You’ll get a lot of curious stares. But don’t worry, this is a good thing! Don’t be shy, crochet wherever you please, crochet at a baseball game, crochet while you wait at the doctors office, crochet outside when the weather is nice. If you don’t want to do it by yourself, take a friend with you for double the crochet fun!
Have a crochet party. Invite your friends who can crochet and those that are interested in learning. Make this a fun event where folks can share their projects and learn new crochet techniques. The party doesn’t have to be too elaborate, just make sure to create an inviting environment where your guests can have fun and crochet at the same time.
Wear something you crocheted. Have you ever wore something you crocheted and have someone come up to you asking where you bought it from? This is a great way to demonstrate the wonderful things people can create from crocheting! Nonetheless, you can make some extra cash by taking orders as a walking, talking crochet model.
Give crocheted gifts. Some may think that crocheted gifts are outdated. That it’s something grandma did. Well, grandma probably did give crocheted gifts, but that doesn’t mean it’s outdated. Just be careful who you give gifts to. A crocheted gift might not be right for everyone, but you probably know a few people that would love what you make. Do you give crocheted gifts?
Crochet something out of the ordinary. Unique and sometimes strange crochet items are so much fun to look at for crocheters and non crocheters! These are items that inspire crocheters to learn more and cause non crocheters to start learning. It is very eye opening to realize that people can crochet anything from teddy bears, hamburgers or even a urinal.
