Crochet Club

crochet n. - needlework in which loops of thread or yarn are interwoven with a hooked needle. 

The Crochet Club was founded in 2011-2012 by faculty member, Mrs. Hickman. She learned how to crochet at the age of 9 and she enjoys sharing this beautiful form of needlework with Shafer students.

"Many of us had grandmothers who sat in a favorite chair, with a ball of yarn at their feet and a crochet hook in their hand, crocheting hats, afghans and baby blankets. I wanted to share this skill that has given me so much joy! Founding the Crochet Club seemed lke the perfect way," says Mrs. Hickman.

There are many educational benefits to crocheting! It teaches higher level thinking skills, self-discipline and eve math and problem solving skills! Mr.s Hickman says the club also helps students with social and communication skills and builds self confidence.

Crochet Club continues to inspire students to be creative! 

The Crochet Club meets on Thursdays form 2:45-3:45 pm. The cost to join is $20 and inclueds a t-shirt.
