New changes for the last year in our current library building (2016).
Next meeting will be Tuesday, August 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 was 20 granny square blocks. The remaining months are adding a new row or two. June and July is assembling the afghan together. Then we will be doing the border rows over a few months after that. Each meeting approximately at 6pm Debbie and I will demo the stitch/row or rows and give everyone time to work on their blocks and everyone will receive the handout instructions for that month.
For the August meeting the mystery crochet afghan will working on 2 rows of border. You will need your A & B colors.
Some will be still working on joining the blocks together so you can come with your squares and learn how if you were not able to make it to the last meeting. You need to bring your B, C & D yarn. If you are even further behind you can still come and get your patterns for the months you are missing. You might want to bring all 4 of your colors so you can work on the next row.
In November it is possible 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.
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. In July we had one bring their sewing machine and work on piecing a quilt top, one crocheting with thread, another beading besides the ones that were working on the mystery afghan.
Each month I will edit this post to show the next meeting so please check this blog page monthly.
