MINUTES OF JUNE MEETING
June 25, 2006
Claire led our
meeting. In attendance: Nancy Peterson, Jean Becker,
Josie Addington, Justine Ozaki, and Claire Cronkleton.
We discussed the calendar of events. The rest of the year was scheduled:
30th and August 27th – Fizz handbags with Justine. Bring stash
cotton and novelty yarns. Takes about 1.5 – 2 lbs to make one bag. The July meeting we will select yarns, trade and purchase yarns to
start the bags. Nancy Peterson will have some starter material kits available. The August meeting – we will continue working on our bags and
get help with shaping and doing the handles.
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.
29th – Claire will bring a turkey pattern, Jean a potholder pattern and Justine will bring a
pumpkin container pattern. These make nice hostess gifts.
3rd meeting – This will be our holiday party and bring patterns to share for quick “make
it and take it” gifts. Please bring a treat to share.
Our workshop was making name tags. All of us experimented with needle felting. Claire gave us direction and
off we went. Everyone had fun making little felted pieces. Justine brought some cookie cutters and some tried felting in them. The gals at the Fiber Gallery
showed us their samples and help us out too.
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.
