April Workshop

The April workshop was an introduction to the Brocade Stitch which uses the afghan stitch aka Tunisian crochet. Jean Becker led the workshop.

To better familiarize the guild with the workshop, Jean did a review of the afghan stitch for those of us who’ve been around the crochet block and introduced the stitch to members who were not familiar with it. Once everyone became familiar with the technique, we delved into the Brocade Stitch which is a series of "waves" using the afghan stitch. Jean showed everyone a model purse which she’d made using the Brocade Stitch.

New Business/Announcements:

Justine announced that new business cards for the guild have been ordered and will be available for distribution shortly.

Clare announced that the Seattle Free School will be conducting free crochet classes and times will be posted. Crochet Seattle! will be sponsoring the classes by having representative members teach.
