It is that time of year when we post what our classes are going to be for the new year. This year is going to be different in that we will be moving into our new building sometime in the spring. We are scheduling the Grand Opening for the new building for June 3, 2017.  With the hopes that weather will be nice to us and allow the completion of the building on time.

That means we will be starting the classes in our current building, 300 S Main St and then sometime in the spring be having our classes in the new building. This might mean that we have to switch a class for a month or two but will be posting on this blog and emailing the group as necessary. We do not want someone showing up at the old building if we are in the new building.

January’s class will be Crochet Pooling – supplies you need to bring – one skein of variegated yarn and a few crochet hooks so you will have the right size to get the look you are going for (G, H, I)

March’s class will be a crocheted corner2corner pillow.

May’s class will be a beading project, more details to come. I still need to talk to the teacher about this one.

August’s class will be making a mesh wreath.

September’s class – vintage button bracelet, start looking through your button collection and find one or a few that you would love to turn into a bracelet.

Supplies for each class will be coming. I will post them here and on the Meeting blog page so you know what to bring.

You are always welcome to bring your own project (BYOP) any month and the months between classes everyone will be bringing something to work on. This year I do not know how many handouts I will be able to get together before each class but hope to have at least one besides the class project handout.

Hope to see all of you this year.

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 3 new ladies join our group and are already working on some wonderful projects. We also had some used crafting books for sale cheap and several of those present found some to add to their own craft collections.

Handouts for Knooking were passed around and we discussed how it seemed easier to get the knit look by Knooking when you have been crocheting for a long time. Knitters can knit faster then Knooking. Personally I think I would be much more comfortable Knooking on a plane then flying with knitting needles.

Enjoy the in progress and completed projects from this months meeting:

Here is where it would be nice to post links and/or patterns and pictures of different projects. I can’t wait to see what you will come up with.
