Crochet Lessons (whangarei or nearby areas)

Interested in learning Crochet? or how to read a Crochet pattern? I enjoy crochet and I enjoy helping! I have been crocheting since I was a teenager (there have been long time periods where I have not crocheted however, and I have done few large projects!) I have made many small items to patterns and I have also made many small items by just improvising.  If there is a crochet project you would like help with or some company while you do it let me know, I would love to crochet alongside you or assist if desired :) I am available Mondays, tuesdays and weds/thurs mornings generally, or another time can be arranged potentially Happy to travel up to 30mins outside Whangarei, I would prefer closer but we will see what turns up! Look forward to hearing from you ♡

Games day! Maunu

Keen to connect with others who enjoy playing card games and board games! We enjoy a range of games including: Yaniv, last card, shithead, scum (arseholes and presidents), risk, monopoly, euchre, cribbage, rummy (including a variation called "may I" a form of contract rummy), we also have other board games (backgammon, checkers, snakes and ladders, that's my fish).  We can host a small gathering in Maunu (we don't have many chairs and only a small table - unless the group is happy to sit on the floor on pillows!), or to meet out somewhere local if we can get a babysitter for our 6yo (we would still have our 1yo).
