MINUTES OF NOVEMBER MEETING
The meeting was held on November 10, 2009 at Bad Woman Yarn in Wallingford Center. In attendance were: Anne Foster Angelou,
Jaime Shure, Mary Ferrari, Lidia Leidloff, Carmella Patterson, Beth Kelley, Carrie Pearsall, Jean Becker, Jan Ives, Darlene
Pearsall, Clare Cronkelton, Deb Hobbs and Josie Addington.
Josie, led the meeting for Justine who was out of town.
There was some discussion about the December Meeting and the it was decided that we would wait for Justine's return to
find out what will be decided for December.
There was no other business.
The November workshop was a "window pane" afghan led by Mary. Mary very patiently showed us how to create a window pane
effect using two colors which would produce a lovely, reversible afghan. Mary showed us her sample along with two finished
afghans using a solid color yarn and a variegated yarn to produce a colorful showpiece.
Everyone was provided an instruction sheet to produce a small swatch. This technique proved to be both simple and enjoyable
not to mention produced a lovely fabric.
Show -n- Tell:
