Meeting Highlights: Project Session

We took the month of October off.  Instead of focusing on a single topic or technique, we used the time to work on whatever projects we each had at hand.  This was a great opportunity to seek help with troublesome patterns and to show off completed projects.  Once again, we had a new member attending for the first time.

We will have a Fifth Saturday meeting at Midtown Global Markets on October 29th. We meet at noon, (ending probably 2 hours later), on the south side of the building, facing Lake Street.  There is ge 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.

The Market is located in the old Sears Building at 925 East Lake Street in Minneapolis.  There is a parking ramp next to the building; if you buy lunch or make any other purchase, the merchant will validate your parking ticket (remember to bring your parking ticket into the market with you).  The program committee will get together following the "meeting."

Our next monthly meeting is Saturday, November 12th, at Borealis Yarns.  Julie and Maxine will lead us through a simple project featuring Tunisian crochet.  Look for an email message and blog posting closer to the meeting date; it will contain all the project requirements.
