Meeting Highlights: August 2010 Meeting

We held our regular monthly meeting Saturday August 14 from 2:30 to 4:30 at Tommy Chicago's Pizzeria in The Village of Mendota Heights. Meeting highlights:
  • We launched our first community project, making backpacks and bags from recycled t-shirts. Carmelle, the project originator, gave us background on this project (funding has been cut from many shelters), and Maxine showed a sample bag that she had (almost) completed.

  • Gail attended the 2010 Chain Link Conference (CGOA's national conference) in July and gave us a report of the workshops, fashion shows, and meetings she attended. We were all very excited to hear that the 2011 show will be in Minneapolis!.
  • Carol D volunteered to maintain the group email list and to send out meeting reminders.
  • And, of course, we had a great time crocheting and sharing our latest projects.
