MEETING AND TEACHING SESSIONS SCHEDULED

SHARING YOUR SKILLS:  If you know of a young person who would enjoy knitting or crocheting (boys included -- I taught my youngest), please take a few minutes to teach them how to knit or crochet.  This is a lifelong gift that you are giving them -- the gift of portable stress relief!!  This will also give you some precious time with the child or young adult and create a unique bonding experience for both of you.  Per a recent newspaper article, between 2002-2004 there has been a 100% increase in the number of teens who know how to crochet or knit.  Knitting and crocheting teach valuable lessons in math and reading skills (pattern reading) as well as hand dexterity.  One young man said that he appreciates that he "can gather my thoughts, meditate and do something productive at the same time."  Another large group learning to knit and crochet is women between the ages of 25-34 years of age as they grew in number at a rate of 150%.  So, share your talent and teach someone!! :-)

 

NEW NEXT YEAR (2007):  Needletatting teaching sessions will be scheduled January and February.  Refresher course for those who learned the basics last year.   

Cost is $5.00 (this is your for your supply kit).  All you need to supply is your own scissors. 

Needle tatting is an old form of lace making that would work well with knitted and crocheted items/garments or sewn garments as a finishing touch. You can use the same yarn and tat edgings or other elements (cotton thread, ribbon etc.) for a unique effect.  Karen Bovard will teach the classes.
