Tunisian Workshop: August 10 Meeting Preview

We're on a roll here, a Tunisian roll! No, this isn't some kind of new deli sandwich, it's the third and last meeting of our series on Tunisian crochet; all Twin Cities crocheters are invited to join us Saturday, August 10 from 1pm to 3pm at Prospect Park United Methodist Church.

At this month's meeting, everyone will have an opportunity to expand on the Tunisian and double-ended Tunisian skills that we've covered in the last two meetings. Jodi and Carla, workshop leaders, will start by showing us additional stitch samplers and projects. They will have handouts of the stitch patterns so during the practice part of the meeting you can try the new patterns - or you can work on other Tunisian or double-ended projects - with coaching from Jodi or Carla as needed.

You'll need to bring the following materials to the meeting:
  • Tunisian or double-ended Tunisian hooks
  • Appropriate yarn for the hooks. If you want to practice double-ended stitches, be sure to bring two solids colors of your yarn (light or medium colors are easiest to work with)
  • Tapestry needle and scissors
(And if you don't have the hooks, there will be a few extras on hand that you can borrow.)

If you have Tunisian or double-ended Tunisian projects that you've done (even if not recent), please bring them to inspire others! Here's a sample of one that you'll see: just a close-up, the type of project and who made it will remain a mystery until the meeting!

Before we get started on the workshop, we also plan to have a lively follow-up discussion (with role-play) about how to use CTC business cards to promote our group as well as finalize our plans about this fall's crochet-in-public - CIP - project so be sure to bring your ideas about good meetup locations in your local area.

We hope to see you there!
