Linda led our meeting.
  In attendance:  Linda Yew, Josie Addington, Carmella Patterson, Justine Ozaki, and Claire Cronkleton.  Lots of members on vacation!
Old Business
We reviewed the calendar of events:
  • Sept 24th – Sweater remake with Jean Becker.  Jean will bring a few of her “remakes” to show you what possibilities of what you can do to recycle a sweater.  Check out her remakes and see what sweaters you can find to remodel from your closet or Value Village.
  • October 22nd – Claire will share a turkey pattern, Jean a potholder pattern and Justine will bring a pumpkin container pattern.  These make nice hostess gifts.
  • December 3rd meeting – This will be our holiday party.  Please bring patterns to share for quick “make it and take it” gifts.  This event will be at Linda’s home starting at 2 PM.  We decided on potluck dinner.
Our workshop for August was to continue working on the bag we started last month.  Josie and Linda brought their completed bags.  Linda had started a second one and was dreaming about her third. Justine forgot her camera, so we will have pictures to share at a later date.
This was Claire’s last meeting.  Claire is moving to Iowa sometime soon.  We will all miss her creative inspirations and her friendship.  Linda will take over being treasurer till elections at the Dec meeting.  We will elect our officers in Dec for 2007.
New Business
Linda noticed in the Fiber Gallery newsletter they said we were meeting the 4th Sunday of each month.  We decided to go back to the 4th Sunday.  The only meeting that will affect this year is the October meeting.
Justine showed us the star afghan that the Crochet Guild of Puget Sound had as their summer workshop.  She told us that Marcia Butchart volunteered to teach a cape pattern off this idea at one of our meetings in 2007.  Everyone agreed they would like to learn the afghan or cape.
The Crochet Guild of Puget Sound invites us to attend their September meeting.  Designer Joy Prescott will be teaching  how to crochet trim/sleeves onto a purchased tee-shirt.  (Yes, you cut off parts of the tee and add crochet.) See her published pattern in the current issue of Crochet! magazine.  The meeting will be September 18th, 6-8 PM at the Crossroads Shopping Center, Bellevue.  Meetings are held in the community meeting room which is next to the security office across from Hallmark card shop.
Thursday nights at the Fiber Gallery they have a drop in session for $5.  You can get help on any problem or learn a new technique.
