Happy Hookers Hub
Welcome to Happy Hookers Hub! A monthly meetup for crochet enthusiasts.
Join us online every second Sunday of each month at 11 am to share and discuss all things crochet. Discover new things, admire each other’s projects, and of course help each other with any problems you are having with your current WIP before frogging the life out of it!
We also like to include fun quizzes, pattern sharing, charity drives, and any upcoming craft fairs or markets that may be of interest.
Everyone is welcome, male or female, young, and not so young, beginners and experts. Come and join in with like-minded people who care about this amazing hobby as much as you do!
Every second Sunday of the month 11 am – 1 pm.

Happy Hookers Hub meetings are held on a Sunday at 11 am – 1 pm (unless otherwise stated)
If for any unexpected circumstances, the above dates have to be changed, you will be notified and sent a new Zoom link to join where possible, or deferred to a future meeting.
Online via Zoom.
We’d hate to leave anyone out, so we’re taking our Happy Hookers Hub online so that anyone and everyone with a device that can connect to the internet can join in. It’s not as difficult to set up as you might think if you’ve never used Zoom before, and we would be happy to help you set things up if you’d like to get in touch.
Who can join Happy Hookers Hub?
Absolutely anyone can join in! If you love crochet as much as we do, you are welcome to join in. Even if you are just starting out and have only just learned the yearns, dont be shy, come and learn from more experienced crocheters who will have a wealth of knowledge, tips, and tricks. Or share your learning journey with others who are also beginners and may be facing the same challenges as you.
We welcome everyone!
How much does it cost?
There is no membership or joining fee, but we ask for a £1 donation per person, per meeting to help to cover the online delivery cost.
As there is a limit of 99 places per event, we also want to make sure that anyone who registers to join in is committed to doing so as much as possible.
Do I have to know how to crochet already, or will you teach me?

Crochet is good for your health, FACT!
The act of crochet encourages the body to be in a ‘flow-state’. This is similar to meditation and is defined as being completely immersed in your activity.
The repetitive counting of crochet has even been shown to serve people with anxiety associated with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), eating disorders, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and insomnia. It’s even called the ‘new yoga’ because of it’s relaxing meditative qualities.

Serotonin and dopamine are two very important chemicals for mental health and are known to be natural anti-depressants. The repetitive movement of crochet has shown to increase serotonin levels. Furthermore, matching your breathing to the repetitive action also helps to slow down your heartbeat and increase dopamine.
The release of these chemicals can reduce blood levels of cortisol – the stress hormone. This in turn lowers your blood pressure. Once your body can prevent and manage stress levels, your immune system is strengthened and you have a better ability to cope with illness, both physical and mental.
This beginner’s crochet workshops are delivered online via Zoom which eliminates any risk associated with the recent COVID-19 pandemic.
