Weekly Crochet Group: Do you Crochet? Would you like to learn? Do you fancy having coffee and chatting one morning whilst working? We are a multilingual (English, German, Spanish) group of ladies that meet every week in Algarrobo Costa. (We used to meet in Torre so you might have heard of us) The group has been meeting now for 5 years and more and we would love new members to come along and join us. And if you really don’t fancy Crochet but like to Knit, well come along with that instead. We meet at Ri Jo’s Cafe Bar on the front from around 10-10.30 ish to 12 – 1pm ish every Thursday. Need more information?
