Charity Projects: May 19 Meetup Announcement

Time flies! It seems like just a few weeks ago that we gathered to work on charity projects as a group but it's actually been several months. Once again, the community outreach committee would like to invite all interested crocheters to join us for a CTC Charity Project Meetup on Saturday morning May 18 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 at this meetup 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 of machine-washable material such as 100% acrylic is best
  • A suitable hook for the yarn - for most people, this will be an I9 or J10 size hook
  • Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

To read more about the specific charity projects we will be working on plus answers to many other questions, see this blog entry about our first meetup.
A special note for those of you who plan to attend the May meeting on May 11 (Go Round in Circles): This meetup will be the perfect opportunity to practice some of the skills that you learn in that meeting by improvising your own hat designs!
