Finishing Techniques and CAL III: October 10 meeting preview

Our CAL project is nearing the end and one of the biggest challenges in completing a crochet project is how to finish it professionally. At this month's meeting you'll get a chance to learn tips and ticks for three of the most common tasks needed to finish crochet projects: blocking, seaming, and finishing edges. Even if you aren't participating in the CAL, everything you learn in this meeting can help in other crochet projects.

The meeting will be Saturday, October 10 at the Textile Center of Minnesota, 3000 University Ave SE, with the following schedule:
  • 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM - Open Crochet
  • 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM - Announcements and Show n Tell
  • 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM - Crochet Education (Finishing Techniques)
To get the most out of this meeting, you need to bring:
  • Two to four prepared swatches (at least 4" square) to practice finishing techniques
  • Extra yarn to practice techniques
  • Appropriate size hook for the yarn
  • A tapestry needle
If you are participating in the CAL we'll have a quick check-in so you'll need to bring:
  • Completed left front piece (Steps 5 and 6 of the pattern)
  • Any questions or problems you have
  • Your printed copy of the Level 1 Crocheted Vest
If you're new to Crochet Twin Cities, you can join us by downloading our membership form and bringing the amount shown on the form to the meeting or you can pay the non-member fee of $5 for attending one meeting.
