You are always welcome to bring your own project to work on, even the months we have classes on something else. We almost always have wonderful Show n Tell (though I have been bad about getting them up on this blog, if you were here, you would see them). Plus you can get help with just about any craft or learn a new one. The group is great about jumping in and trying to see if they can solve a crafting problem.


Yes, you read that right. That is the month we will have the Large display to show everyone what our Chat n Craft group have been working on for the past year. So ladies get busy completing some of those projects you’ve been bringing to CnC meetings. Go check out our November 2008 display to see what has been shown before.

We decided to meet on December 14th instead of our normal 3rd Monday because it is Christmas week. We are going to do what we did last December.

If you have some crafty stuff that you no longer want to complete, yarn you don’t want to use up, etc. Bring it with you and we will do a “trade or exchange”. We’re calling it White Elephant. Only bring a few items because we will have to be in the small meeting room and there will not be a lot of room to do this.

Otherwise, bring whatever project you are working on and we’ll have fun seeing what everyone is doing and listening to all the wonderful stories.

Would you like to see what the 2010 itinerary is going to be, barring any closed for snow days?

Now for the show n tell from the meeting:

This was our first needle tatting class. I brought samples of what I have learned about different thread sizes and needle sizes.

Thread size 80, 20 and 10, all four needle sizes

Thread size 80, 20 and 10, all four needle sizes

Those that wanted to practice on how easy it was to learn needle tatting were able to, though we had to share tatting needles. Lorene has found a supplier she can get tatting needles from, visit her blog to see when she gets them in.

I forgot to get some pictures of Angie’s relative’s tatting and they were beautiful work too. So I’ve put two pictures of some tatting I found that was made in 1919.

Now I know you are looking forward to see what some of the ladies brought for show n tell check it out:
