Art, Craft and Needlework, October 2017

Postby BookSaver » Tue Oct 03, 2017 7:58 am

Last month a new "Threads" group started at my library. One woman loves to crochet and asked permission to advertise that she will be at the library with her project every Thursday afternoon from 1 to 3, and wants others to join her. It isn't a class, it's just a designated time for like-minded people to play with yarn and make new friends.

It's such a simple idea and took a few weeks to get going, but now there are 4 regulars and another 4 who say they want to start coming soon. We hope it will continue through the winter.

They are meeting during the time I'm working so I can't stitch with them, but it's fun to see their projects and hear them laughing in the back corner.

Would you like to be part of a group like that? Are any of your projects portable enough to pack in a bag to go play with friends? Or does your creative process work better when you are by yourself in your own space?

I was able to get to my yarn group meeting last week we have found a place to met this fall and I am looking forward to the meeting this week and hearing all about the alpaca fest / spin inn gathering last weekend at this meeting. Traffic is better road construction is finishing up so that helps. We have out grown a few spots. I knit dish clothes at these meetings they are small and portable. Finished a dish cloth.

I painted stones to look like candy corn w smiliey faces on them, some new ones in white yellow and orange, others in red green and white for the Christmas season too. Maybe for the next rock trade event in Dec.
Some of the gals took one home.

Thank you for starting us off, BookSaver. It was a relief to me to see we were "here".

I would love to find a group of "thread" folks but right now don't have one. I think it's wonderful when it can happen.

On set of 2 in fall colors for fall with a basket that has leaves painted on it, anothe in golds & tan, and a basket, and this last one is in Christmas colors and a basket. They are in a box to go when I finish up this last one.
