January 2016 KS My Stitch Crochet Guild Meeting

Monday January 18, 2016 was our first meeting of the new year. What a great turn out we had and we have 4 new members. Our new set of officers have got quite the year lined up for us. Starting with the new exciting programs at every monthly meeting, the Crochet in Public outings planned on every last Tuesday of the month (where we will be meeting at different places all over Wichita), a monthly electronic newsletter, members are given discounts to several craft stores and a restaurant, a monthly challenge (where at the end of the year if you participate) you will have a chance at a grand prize that you will not want to miss out on. We are still continuing on with our purple hat charity project and have included the red hat charity project as well. The guild will also be a drop off point for the Bridget Cradles project. As always our members enjoy showing and sharing our completed and works in progress projects. And January was no different.

One thought on “January 2016 KS My Stitch Crochet Guild Meeting

  1. Tamara,
    I’m so glad we have someone like you to take so many pictures of our guild meetings. I think Ana’s red creations were Christmas tree skirts not shawls. But, they might double as shawls:) When are you teaching the sweater class again and where?
    Love ya,
    Kaye
