I believe I have finally figured out how to conquer the challenges of posting on our WordPress site and will try to keep better communications with the membership. Thanks to Joyce Goff as I am cutting and pasting from her group post.
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 13TH:
Originally this was scheduled as a “brown bag your lunch and bring your hooking” event – which it still is! BUT…Donna Hezlep is going to also do a presentation on wide cuts (9 and larger) that are a great way to use any wool that you wouldn’t otherwise use in your rugs – thin, thick, raggy, etc. She has a few animal patterns (sheep, cat, pig, etc.) that become really cute squishy pillows. Everyone is free to observe the techniques. At the January meeting we were able to order a pattern or a kit but if you weren’t there, you can contact Donna directly to see what you need to bring if you’d like to try this out. (Donna’s phone is 207-318-2243 and her email is firstname.lastname@example.org) It really looks like a fun thing to do and I know we all have wool that we just don’t know what to do with.
If you are coming just to hook and bringing lunch – you can set up in the big room (we’ll do our class in the smaller side room) and remember that we pay for the hall until 2 so there’s no need to eat and run.
MARCH MEETING & AUCTION – CHANGE OF DATE:
Due to a conflict with the Westford Hook-in on March 12th – we will NOT be having our meeting or auction that day. We have moved the March meeting/auction to March 19th! Start cleaning your closets for our annual auction!! Members are requested to bring items that are in good shape for the auction.
VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY: KITTERY , SATURDAY 7 MAY
There will be an event called “ARTRAGEOUS” held at the Kittery Recreation Center from 3:00-8:00. We are looking for some artists, rug hookers and others to provide demonstrations in the new gym during those hours. You can hang out with a couple friends while working on your own rug, and also show others how to pull loops. Tin Pedlars will provide at least one frame, wool strips and pattern. In addition to that opportunity proposals are currently being taken from teachers of all arts who are interested in providing workshops in separate classrooms. Please contact Lauri Troutman.
