December 2013 Meeting, Show & Tell

Thank you to everyone that helped fill our table with lovely goodies for our last meeting of the year! We had a couple of requests for the homemade goodies that were shared. If you would like to share your recipe, email Jennifer -

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a very happy New Year to all of our volunteers and supporters!

Done! #crochet
By request - this crochet pattern is called Autumn Glory and can be found in the book 101 Easy Scrap Crochet Projects. There's an authorized preview of this book on Google Books, which includes the pattern. You can find it on pages 11 - 12. For a baby/toddle size blanket, ch 121. The pattern as-is makes a great teen sized afghan!

Thanks to Dee for bringing this next gem to our attention! Follow the instructions in the video to avoid tangles when using large skeins of Bernat Baby Sport yarn.
