New changes for the last year in our current library building (2016).

Next meeting will be Tuesday, December 6, 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.

December is BYOP and it is our Exchange. You can bring something that you already own that you are not going to use or finish. After everyone gets to the meeting and sets their stuff out then everyone that brought something can select something else to take home. Over the years we have seen some nice UFOs turn into completed projects. I wonder what this year will bring.

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.

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!

It was nice to be able to spread out while we worked on our projects. Several of the ladies brought some of the recently completed projects too. Enjoy!

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.

We have several doing the Mystery Crochet Afghan at home with us and this month you get to see some that have been able to come to the meetings. Including some that are working on the next months which is joining the squares together.

You can also see some of the other projects some are working on.

Yes I am finally getting a moment to upload some pictures so those that could not make it can see some of the wonderful Show n Tell we have had at the meetings.

We got to see a HUGE doll house among some of the other Show n Tell. We had a few members that had not been with us for a few months. Christmas time can be rather busy for most of us. You will see some of the above craft projects again when they are completed.

It is always nice to see members come to laugh, tell stories and work on our craft projects. One member could not be at the meeting but wants to stay up on mystery crochet afghan so I met her at a sports bar. I am pretty sure they have never had a couple of crocheting ladies there before.
