4th Saturday Meet-Up: Saturday, March 23


Our next meet-up is Saturday, March 23, at the Barnes & Noble at HarMar Mall in Roseville.

The meet-up will be from 9 a.m. (when the store opens) until  noon. We meet at the cafe in the center of the store - we'll be the crowd with the crochet hooks.

Meet-ups are our informal gathering each month - open to all crocheters with no fee for attending - with a special welcome extended to new crocheters. Bring a project to work on - or not, if you just want to chat or ask questions - and come when you can and stay as long as you're able.

We hope to see you there!
