Old Business
After another discussion on name options, we decided on Crochet Seattle!  Linda will order business cards.
Dues were collected.  The dues for 2006 were set at $10.  If you haven’t yet paid your dues please bring them to the next meeting.

Justine shared copies of the Crochet Guild of Puget Sound’s by-laws.
  Please review and we will decide at the next meeting how we will word ours.

Discussion on joining the national Crochet Guild of America.
  Dues are $45 for a year.  Officers would need to belong to the national guild.  Benefits as a guild is that we would be listed as a group on their web site.  Members who individullly belong to the national guild get copies of Crochet! magazine.  We decided to table this till next meeting.
Some discussion on need to move to a larger location in the future.  All like the idea of meeting in a yarn shop.  Suggestions were the Fiber Gallery or Weaving Works (if they would have us).
Justine told us that Lily Chin has a new TV show called Stitchcraft.  The pilot will air on March 5th at3 PM on the Oxygen network.
The Seattle Knitting and Fiber Arts Expo is April 28-30th at the Seattle Marriott Hotel at Seatac.  Lily Chin is one of the instructors.  She is doing a half day class on crochet tips and hints.  Course fee is $45.  You can get all the info on various crochet class at
Next meeting is March 26th from 2-4 PM, Justine volunteered to do a hat workshop with info on making chemo hats.  Kits will be available at the Wooly Monkey.  Material list will be sent out about 10 days before the class.
