Crochet retreats, lessons and walks around Florence for crochet and yarn lovers

“I learned so much and saw so many things that I wouldn’t have seen if I hadn’t done this tour. Very unique and fun experience” Lisa on Airbnb

If you’re visiting Florence, come to my group. It’s a fantastic occasion to meet locals and fellow crocheters.

Monthly event hosted by a book shop right in front Florence Cathedral (Libraccio, Via De’ Cerretani 16R). Contact me for more info and next date.

Walking Wool

In 2019 I’ve started Walking Wool, Florence guided tour for yarn lovers. Participants discover hidden gems and legends of Medici town, walking around Florence with me and Eleonora Galardini, a certified tour guide. At the end of the walk we visit one of oldest yarn shop in downtown (of course!) and we crochet in a caffe with breathtaking view! Walking around Florence and share my passion for architecture, yarn and crochet it’s a dream come true! Fill form below to receive full program, availability and prices.
