New changes for the last year in our current library building (2016).
Next meeting will be Tuesday, February 2, 2016 in the large meeting room at Joplin Public Library, 5:30pm – 8:00pm or any part of that time you can make it.
We will be meeting the 1st Tuesday of every month.
This year, for those that want to participate we are doing a mystery crochet afghan. We started at our January meeting. The first month is 20 granny square blocks to do. The remaining months will be adding a new row or two and then assembling the afghan towards the end of this year. Each meeting approximately at 6pm I will demo the stitch and give everyone time to work on their blocks and everyone will receive the handout instructions for that month. After 10 months you will be able to have completed the afghan. Just in time for a Christmas gift to someone in 2016. If you are interested in some color variations or other info about it go to our blog post –
The only hint I am giving is that it is somewhat 3D when you are done.
For the rest of the February meeting we will be working on whatever project you want to bring, please bring your favorite crafting tool or tools and I will bring some of mine. It will be interesting to see if we have some of the same ones. I did not get pictures of some of the Show n Tell from the January meeting but we did have some beautiful pieces including the first “temperature” afghan that I have ever seen. It will be nice to see that completed.
You are always welcome to BYOP (Bring Your Own Project) that you are working on. 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.
