Description

Learn to Crochet a Granny Square Bag!

If you’re a fan of vintage and granny chic and know your crochet basics, you will love this class!  

Specifically, you will learn how to make a bag in “Granny Square” style. You will be provided with a pattern and you can either bring your own 8ply Cotton or choose from a variety of colours available to purchase on the day.

The pattern is provided free as a PDF file and will be emailed to you a day or two before the class. A hard, colour copy of the pattern, the bag handles and “the kit” (which includes the pattern plus two 4” Bag Handles) are available to purchase in-store or can be bought at registration checkout.

You need to know your crochet basics such as making a chain and treble stitch. If you have recently learned to crochet this is a fun project to enhance your basic new skills.

The class runs for 2 hours.  If you need further assistance for finishing the project, there are future Granny Square Bag classes available as well as private lessons.

You will also enjoy the relaxed vintage ambience of Unwind Craft Cafe where you can have a house made Devonshire tea, browse the various artisan stall holders as well as stock up on craft and wool supplies.

Unwind Craft Cafe

Vendor since 2016

Unwind Craft Cafe is the dream creation of Robyn, to provide a warm and inviting place for lovers of vintage, retro, handmade, and anyone who enjoys good old fashioned cafe treats that are made with love, our barista made coffee and tea selection are a good enough reason to just pop in and Unwind.

Why not grab a friend or someone special and enjoy our delicious house made Devonshire tea, fresh whipped cream, house made lemon curd (you may lick the jar as many of our customers do) home made jam with organic fruit from a family property in Rushworth, all served up with an appealing retro vintage feel, vintage tea cups and a tea cozy of course.

You will be greated by our lovely staff and an amazing colourful wall of Bendigo Woollen Mills Yarn, the store is a buzz with all the handmade wares for you to purchase or order.

You will often see someone learning a new craft, or selecting the yarn for a new project, which adds to the special atmosphere at Unwind.

We have a dedicated space for private functions, crafty catch ups for those who want to linger longer, retirement village outings or any other use we may not have thought of yet. With food and beveridges provided from our fantastic menu, let us organise a special gathering for you, add a teacher and we can incorporate a lesson or fun craft activity, perfect for team building or getting your guests involved and making it an extra special event.

With our stressful busy lives, the ever increasing screen and device time, knitting and crochet are back in vogue not only for creativity, also for their fantastic ability to help us relax and Unwind, do not under estimate this truly magical side effect of these time honoured crafts.

Children aged around 10 or older benefit greatly from Knitting and crochet, it is also something that an adult and child can do together, it builds lasting connections and fond memories, not to mention great for manual dexterity and mindfulness.

A great selection of yarn, books, knitting and crochet tools are also available, with someone who actual knows what they are selling and how to use the products (very rare today) so nothing left for you to do, other than book a class, pop in for a cafe treat, or organise that special function.

Let us help you Unwind real soon, we no you deserve it!

Terms & Conditions

Unwind Class Terms & Conditions

Payment for Classes:  Our classes are kept small in order to maximise your learning experience. This means you will receive individual attention during class, but it also means that places are limited.

In order to reserve a space in a class you must pay the full registration fee in advance. Payments and bookings are via We Teach Me (our preferred booking and payment system), in the store, or over the phone on (03) 9336 0687, using PayPal or a credit card.

Booking and Cancellations:We understand that things happen and sometimes you are unable to attend a class. However, in order to cover our teacher and class costs, please be aware of the following when booking your class.

Cancellations or changes of date made with 7 or more days notice will receive a full refund less $10 administration fee. This can be a refund or a credit to another class.

Cancellations or changes of date made with less than 7 days notice may forfeit 50% of the class fee*. This can be a refund or a credit toward another class.

Cancellations or changes of date made with less than 48 hours notice may forfeit full fee*. No refund or credit will be given.

Missing a second or subsequent session of a multi-session class there is no refund for missed session. Make up sessions are generally not available, however our teacher may be willing to arrange another date for session, or attend one of our social events (assistance may be offered if teacher is present or from fellow participants) or book a private class.

*All reimbursements are made at the discretion of the shop owner and are determined on a case by case basis.

Occasionally, Unwind may cancel a class* due to low booking numbers. We really don't like doing this as we love to teach people to knit, crochet and scrumble, but if we don't cover our costs we can't run the class. If Unwind must cancel a class, enrolled participants will be notified 24 hours or more prior to the scheduled class and will receive a credit for the replacement class or a full refund as required.

Our lovely teachers realise this may be disappointing for some participants (it's disappointing for them too!), and are willing to provide a Private or Small Group Lesson** if a cancellation due to low booking numbers occurs.

*Cancellations are at the discretion of the teacher and Unwind Craft Café.**Private (one participant) and Small Group (two participants) Lessons cost a little more, however you benefit from the individual attention from our teacher.

Supplies/Materials:To avoid the disappointment and frustration that occurs when using inferior tools, we ask that any specific materials be purchased from the shop and you do not substitute.

Students may be able to purchase supplies via We Teach Me when booking a class or from the store. Please arrive at least 15-30min early to purchase supplies if you have not already done so prior to class.

Please support your local yarn store and purchase your supplies at Unwind Craft Café.

Patterns: A link to Ravelry for any class patterns will be included on the class booking page on We Teach Me. For customers that are not familiar with Ravelry, patterns can be brought in store and sent to you (or someone you nominate) via email.

Like an earlier comment I am self taught in crochet and coming to the class helped refine a few points. It also gave me confidence to change colours and venture outside the scarf and afghan projects. I am halfway through my bag in 3 days after the class, and am very excited to finish. The teacher was lovely and patient.

The class was great fun. The area in which it was held was perfect. I will be back again for another class. Thanks Guys.

I really enjoyed this class. Being self-taught it was good to learn some finer points to obtain a better looking project. Our teacher was a lovely person who instructed to everyone then spent individual time with us as we needed it. I would certainly attend one of her classes again.
