If you could feel an aliveness of the crochet scene in Cebu, I guess it’s just right to give credit to Casa Gorordo Museum. It’s nice to see that there’s an organization, Casa Gorordo Museum, in Cebu who is supporting the local artisans (you can find a lot of items made by local artisans in their souvenir cafe / shop), as well as working on preserving the handcrafting skills… of the Titas.
Cebu Crochet Group kind of started in Casa Gorordo Museum, last February, 2018, when they invited Sarah Palmares to facilitate a crochet workshop. (The Cebu Crochet Group has been created during the workshops for us and the participants to connect.)
Since then on, Casa Gorordo Museum has been like the “meeting place” for the Titas. It’s like the go-to place if you want to find someone who can relate to your kind of happiness, crochet.
So when Casa Gorordo organized a series of workshop last October, it’s like Coachella to the crochet addict in me.
Here are some photos from the last Ganchillo at the Azotea as organized by Casa Gorordo Museum.

I’m so happy to see a friend from running community, Liberty. =)
Me: Do you want to start on granny square?
Kid: Yes. My goal for today is granny square, then next is water bottle bag.
You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it. – Robin Williams
Adulting and such can somehow make us jaded to go after what could fire inside us, or sometimes we did not even know the fire has long gone. Adults always find legit reasons for excuses. Seeing and listening to the little boy’s determination was a big reminder to me to never ever lose that spark.
It may not be crochet, just don’t ever ever lose the will to find that spark… and #bloggerpose.
Here are some photos from the 3rd and last session of GANCHILLO at the AZOTEA, a crochet workshop organized by Casa Gorordo Museum:
Studies said that CREATING makes us more happier than consuming; and therefore makes us more beautiful. 🙂 (I kinda just made this up.)
Last Saturday (Feb. 3, 2018) was the first workshop session of Ganchillo at the Azotea, organized by Casa Gorordo. Sarah Palmares, the crafter behind Crochets by Tomatofire, led the workshop though she wanted to be described more of as a friend who just want to share her love for crochet.
I, being inlove with crochet, was so happy to be invited to assist the workshop (I hope I was useful though.). There are just so many things I love about crochet or knitting, but I’ll spare you from my boring sentiments. =) So I was just so giddy to see other people trying to make their first (or not so first) chains, single crochet, double crochet, to granny square. I wish it sparked some thing inside of them / us that will inspire us to create more out of life (not necessarily just in crochet though). =)
Another crocheter, Bernadette Dy of Hoopaholic Cebu, also joined to assist in the workshop.
Here are few photos from the Ganchillo at the AZOTEA:
Please join us in the upcoming Ganchillo at the Azotea crochet workshop sessions in Casa Gorordo. And, hopefully, we can work on more creative activities the whole year round. Because makers / creators are beautiful!
