Dues were collected by Justine from Nancy, Jan and Carmella.
 
Workshop on chemo hats by Justine.  The Fiber Gallery had all required materials. Also we finished up our bracelets.  Please bring your finished items to the next meeting for pictures to post on our website.

A new Interweave Crochet magazine is now out for Spring 2006.  Many wonderful projects to think about.  I think at least half of us bought the magazine on Sunday.
 
The Fiber Gallery is having their 2nd anniversary sale – up to 40% off clearance items and 20% off every yarn in the store on April 22 and 23rd.  You might want to come to the meeting early Sunday to do a little shopping!
 
Next meeting is April 23rd from 2-4 PM. Jean showed us her samples of lace scarf, belts and a necklace.  Jean then volunteered to do a lace workshop with info on making a summer belt or scarf. Materials – cotton crochet thread size 3 Royale, Senso or anything similar.  The Fiber Gallery does not carry thread.  Hook size E, F or to taste.
 
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.
