Next meeting will be Tuesday, March 7, 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 normally be meeting the 1st Tuesday of every month. But since we are opening a new building soon, this month will be the last meeting until we are in our new building. Our next meeting will be June 6 in our new building.
Our March class will be a c2c (corner 2 corner) graphgan pillow. You should bring a few crochet hooks- G, H, I, J if you want to get your gauge right. I know that I crochet tight so I will bring my I & J hooks. You will also need some red, white and a little bit of black and peach or beige yarn. Plus a background color that will look good with Santa’s head. Blue? Green? If you have some yarn bobbins, you could bring about 5 or 6 of those too. If you do not have yarn bobbins you could bring some wooden spring clothespins or you could just wind a few small balls of yarn that night.
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 so please check this blog page monthly.

As our new building gets closer and closer to completion, the excitement is thick. It is also keeping staff very busy, keeping the current library running and handling all the details of the new building. Many staff have hobbies of various types including handwork. The items below are from the January and February and are current projects working on as well as a few completed items. Some are from the crochet planned pooling class that we had in January.

These are the pictures of items brought to our last 3 meetings. Pictures can not show all the detail of their beautiful work. You do see several of the mystery crochet afghans that were worked on this past year. 2017 we will bring back every other month classes. Look for the blog post for the classes to see if there is one you can’t wait to do.

We have several members let me know that they could not be there. I have handed out several patterns from previous months of other members that have had to miss. Hope everyone is enjoying some relaxing handwork of some kind. I know several that are working on Christmas presents and having some fond memories of those they are making them for. This year has been crazy busy for me and unfortunately have not worked on some of the projects that I was hoping to. On the plus side, I have not added any UFOs to my list this year. 😀
Does anyone know what this animal is? I do! I do!

We had several of the Mystery Crochet Afghan blocks this month plus some projects that are work in progress as well as some completed items. I am excited to see how everyone is progressing and hope next month more will be able to bring theirs.
