Hey all. I live in Malden, but have easy access to Boston and the surrounding 'burbs.

I have been trying to learn to crochet from book after book, and website after website, and I just cannot get it. Today I got Debbie Stoller's Happy Hooker book in the mail and even though I learned to knit from her other books I am still having trouble with crochet!!

So, I was wondering if anyone knew how to crochet and would be willing to take pity on me and teach me basic crochet skills? I cannot really offer money in return (except i'll buy you coffee if we go to a coffee shop), but I can offer knitting help if you want it (I'm not that advanced though). I was going to try to get help at the Boston Knit Out and Crochet, but it is not until September.

You can send me a message or reply to this message.

If you can't help personally, do you know of any crocheting groups in Boston that get together (like the Stitch and Bitch groups?) or any yarn shops that offer basic skill teaching (not necessarily classes, but might sit with me for 10 minutes to teach me).

Anyway, if this type of post is not allowed, I'll delete it.

Thanks Mass Craftsters!

Now, my story begins in nineteen-dickety-two. We had to say "dickety" 'cause the Kaiser had stolen our word "twenty". I chased that rascal to get it back, but gave up after dickety-six miles

Hi everything is free..
I know that the store Woolcott in Harvard Square teaches knitting, and Im pretty sure they would help you with crochet.  Everytime I have gone in there to buy yarn they have always been very very helpful, and many times I have seen them sitting down with someone to show them something.  Its a great store for really nice yarn too.  I think there are two letters or initials before their name Woolcott.  But if you know harvard square, you probably also know the store.  It's on JFK street, right next t o the Red Line bar , and across the street from Berks shoe store.  I would just go in there and ask what they can do for you.  They're really nice.  Let me know if you need anymore info on how to get there , etc..
