Jane's Hooked on Crochet

A place to write about my crocheting, things I'm learning, book reviews, ideas, projects in mind, works in progress, patterns, photos, fair entries, whatever...

CGOA March Meeting & Library Display

Those Yarn Crocheters, the Harrisburg Chapter of the Crochet Guild of America meet Thursday, March 29th at the East Shore Library. One of the first things that we did was to go upstairs to the main area of the library and look at the display that Faith & I put together after a last minute request. We chose the theme Crochet: From Past to Present, and had pattern books from the early 1900's up to 2007. We had items made from patterns from the whole time span. I also had samples of different types of crochet - filet, Delta, overlay and Tunisian.

The "new business" portion of the meeting involved a report on our field trip to the February Gathering of the Guilds. We also discussed what would be involved for the Chapter to participate in the Gathering next year. We had three new people at the meeting, we hope they had a nice time, learned something and are planning to attend future meetings. In "Show and Tell" Faith shared all the creative hats she's been designing and making, she got plenty of positive feedback. (I'm pushing her to write them and submit them for publication!)
