Charity Projects: January 26 Meetup Announcement

The community outreach committee invites all interested crocheters to join us for a CTC Charity Project Meetup on Saturday morning January 26 at the Bruegger's in Sun Ray Shopping Center in St. Paul. We have the private room reserved from 9AM to noon but you are free to come for any length of time. The only thing we ask is that you use the time you're there to work on the designated charity projects rather than other projects.

If you're joining us, please bring the following items:
  • A skein of smooth worsted weight yarn - a machine-washable material such as 100% acrylic is best so that donated items are easy to care for. Look for brands like Lion Brand Vanna's Choice, Red Heart Super Saver or Classic Yarn, or Caron Simply Soft - usually available at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, Michaels Stores, or even Walmart.
  • A suitable hook for the yarn - for most people, this will be an I9 or J10 size hook.
  • Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
