Meeting Highlights: Crochet Skills Workshop

There was a lot of excitement around the Textile Center for the opening of the Green Line light rail. It added to the fun and excitement of the Crochet Skills Workshop at our June 14 meeting. 

Julie announced a change to the meeting format.  In an effort to increase the time spent on crocheting and learning meetings will begin with the topic of the month and wrap up with business items and sharing projects. 

We're also making only one project gallery picture of all projects so that more meeting time can be devoted to the the educational topic.  This picture shows all the projects brought in this month. 

This month members had a chance to practice new skills and techniques and learn a lot.   The table topics were: reading crochet charts, "plastic bag yarn (plarn)", crab stitch, standing stitches and foundation stitches.  We were reminded of the time every 15 minutes so most members had a chance to visit all of the tables.  Thank you to all of the members who agreed to help teach and host a table.
