Ongoing Crochet Class
Our Krafters Korner President, Tammy and our former Treasurer Cindy have been holding a phone and email hybrid class teaching us to crochet. This is an ongoing class in which there is a conference phone call to discuss the techniques as well as a private email list for the class participants to discuss the techniques learned in class.
Our most recent project was a Gingerbread Man. These will be fun to make for the upcoming holidays.
These cute little Gingerbread Men were a nice quick project to make. I like making little projects like this to try a new technique or skill out without a large investment in time or supplies.

I am thrilled you are reading this post. Krafters Korner is a division of the National Federation of the Blind. We are crafters from all over the world. Many of us are blind or work with others affected by blindness. We all love crafting and sharing with one another.
One way we share info is through our listserv. We post on a wider range of crafting topics with the spirit of helpfulness. If you would like to join our list serve go to: listserv.
We also offer a wide range of fantastic classes for all abilities in many crafts. These classes are taught over the phone or email. The phone classes involve calling a chat line number on the given night. Here you will be able to hear both the teacher and your fellow classmates. We laugh a lot. We encourage one another and overall have lots of fun. The email classes help meet the needs of people’s busy schedules. Each class has a separate group and the instructor emails you directions on the craft. You and your classmates can email each other with questions or concerns.
In order to take these classes you will need to become a member of the Krafters division. Our dues $20 per year. These give you unlimited access to our classes and allows you to vote at membership meetings. If you are new to our group, your first class is free to help you experience our learning environment.
