We are a group of people that meet at the Joplin Public Library that like handwork crafts. Just about any kind. Knitting, crochet, embroidery, quilting, counted cross-stitch….

We want to use technology to help with access to all the wonderful patterns and ideas that are available to help be as creative as we can be.

If you’re stuck, we want to help. If there is something you want to learn, let us know. We will try to have a class on it in an upcoming month. We will try to help you whenever you bring your project in.

If you’re working on something, bring it with you. If you’ve completed a project, bring it with you, we would love to see it.

We have had classes on embroidery, crochet, knitting, hairpin lace, tunsian crochet and beading, that was just in one year. We had classes on tatting, quilting, more crochet and knitting and who knows what else we will be doing in the future. Come spend a couple of hours with us and have fun while learning and/or working on your projects.

Take a look at some of the work some of our members have done on our Show n Tell blog posts. Take a look at some of the patterns or urls we have on this blog. We have free pattern handouts when you come to the meetings.

      Sharon, I didn’t see you at the January meeting. I hope you will be able to make it to our February meeting. We are having a crochet class. We have several including myself that are still working on knitting projects. Bring whatever project you will be working on. If you have any questions, just post here or bring them with you when you come to the monthly meetings.

  7. hey my name is Erin i work at JoAnn fabrics (dread headed faerie girl) I love sewing and needlework and learning to crochet and i am considering coming to the next one…could you ask around and see if anyone has the Jan/Feb 2009 issue of Crochet today? I am looking for an article in it but I don’t want to pay an arm and a leg on their site just for the one article….

    1. lilaclee Says:

      I can ask at the next meeting to see if anyone has that issue. We will be meeting December 14, 2009 instead of our normal 3rd Monday meeting. We normally meet the 3rd Monday of every month. I’ve posted what our classes are going to be in 2010, you’re always welcome to bring your own project to work on.

    I do not know how to do anything crafty but have always wanted to learn. is there any room for newbies in this group or do you prefer experience? I can sew but it is very basic.

    1. lilaclee Says:

      Sorry it took so long for me to respond. I am running behind in updating the blog. We have a mix of knowledge about crafts. Quite a diverse group. Just about all handwork someone knows how to do or wants to learn how to do. You are welcome to come to any of our meetings including for our classes. Check the meeting reminder at the top of our homepage to see what supplies would be needed the month we are having a class, if you want to learn one of them. Or you can just come and take a look at whatever everyone is working on and get ideas on what you want to do. Or bring whatever handwork you are currently working and work on it during the meeting. We have had mini classes when someone is wanting to learn something new and we do not have a class set up for the year. In November we make recommendations for next year classes. So if there is something you are wanting to learn specifically, please make sure you come to that meeting.

      Not sure if I replied to this are not. Hopefully I did, but it is showing up in the new edit. Newbies are always welcome and this year, 2015, we have a few newbie classes you might find fun. Please come to a meeting and we will help you.
