Midtown Global Market: April 30 5th Saturday Outing

Our April 5th Saturday meeting will be this Saturday at the Midtown Global Market.  We meet at noon (ending probably 2 hours later), on the south side of the building, facing Lake Street.  There is a fairly large seating area near the windows overlooking the street.  You just have to hunt for it.

This will be a purely social event, a chance to try different ethnic foods, chat and crochet.  I'm not expecting many to show up, but those of us who do will have a good time.

Something we all need to think about:  what to do at our monthly meetings.  Over the last few years we have investigated a variety of topics, including hairpin lace, broomstick lace, tapestry crochet, working with beads, and basic knitting skills for crocheters.  Some of you have indicated to me that you will attend a meeting when the topic is something that interests you.  Well, what interests you?  What do you want to learn?  Do you have a special interest or skill that you'd be willing to share with the rest of us (that is, lead the session for us)?  I'd sure be interested in learning how to adjust a pattern to improve fit (making it bigger does not mean making it better).  If you just want this to be a crochet club that gets together monthly to sit and crochet, it would be good to hear that from you.
