    Hello: My name is Donna and I speak English only. I have a friend who speaks Spanish only and wants to learn to crochet. I don’t think she uses a computer. I am trying to find a Learn to Crochet book or something similar to get her started with crochet. I live in San Diego, California. If you know of a crochet class, group or store that my friend could use to get supplies, please let me know. I am on Facebook as Donna Marie Roberts so you could Message me. My friend does gorgeous embroidery work. I showed her my crochet things and she was hooked. Thanks in advance for your help, Donna

      Hi Donna! It is so nice to see that your friend wants to learn to crochet! There are books in Spanish for crochet, but I can not recommend any because I have not used them, so I don’t know what is the best. On the internet there are a lot of videos, I have a YouTube channel with videos for absolute beginners but if she doesn’t know how to use the computer it is not a good idea. I am pretty sure that there are crochet lessons near her, maybe in a yarn store and it is ok if she doesn’t speak English because she just needs to see and then practice. I don’t know of places to buy things in the US because I live in Spain.
      Thanks for contact, have a good day
