Next meeting will be Monday, September 21, 2015 in the large meeting room at Joplin Public Library, 5:30pm – 8:00pm or any part of that time you can make it.

September is Bring Your Own Project night. Plus we might be working on some quilt tops, waiting to hear from Pam about that. I will bring my mermaid throw that I am working on.

Since I did not update this post about the Tunisian Crochet class in August, I will bring mine again to show some of the different stitches and will bring some yarn and afghan hook in case you want to try it if you don’t have a hook.

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.

I know I have been asked where some of our Show n Tell are. Here are the last two months:

The benefit of having two months of pictures is you will see a pink hat in the making one month and finished the next month. You also see the beginning on my variegated tunisian crochet above.  I am working on a sailboat in the tone-on-tone washcloths similar to the rocking horse and house above. Wondering what all of you are working on????

We had an interesting meeting on Quilting Basics. The first quilt shown below is over 30 years old. I always caused them Puff quilts because you stuffed each square and then sewed them together. The lady is going to be doing sewing some repairs. In the back left corner of the tables is the laptop of our first Skype member, Linda. She was able to watch and participate in our entire 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
