Next meeting will be Monday, April 20, 2015 in the large meeting room at Joplin Public Library, 5:30pm – 8:00pm or any part of that time you can make it.

Class - Quilting Basics

I will come back here and post what to bring when the teacher lets me know. We might just have handouts with instructions. What would be nice for those that do quilt already, please bring some of your UFOs, quilt blocks, quilt tops and/or quilts that you have made. It would make a great show n tell.

You are always welcome to BYOP that you are working on, even on a class night. Plus bring any of your projects you would like to for Show n Tell.

Each month I will edit this post to show the next meeting.

We had a small group for our Arm Knitting class. One worked on her sketching, one worked on her own crochet project, 5 worked on Arm Knitting. Personally I think casting on was the hardest for me. I did manage to finish mine (blue & gray below) the next day. It took just under 3 hours to complete. I wonder how the others felt about Arm Knitting after learning how to do it.

We had our meeting last night and everyone was working on a different type of project. Crochet, plastic canvas, quilting, drawing and hairpin lace. Though I did not do much hairpin lacing during the meeting and did not take a picture of what I was working on.

This first group of pictures are from 2014

Yes, I know, where does the time fly by. It’s the end of June and I have not posted any Show n Tell for the last to months. Unfortunately I have not taken pictures of everything that was brought. If you were at one of those meetings you would have seen more then what I am able to post here.

We have some wonderful examples of Mosaic Knitting make by one of our members who went around and helped everyone with tips and tricks on how to do it. Thanks Lorene
