*If any one have any questions about the contest, contact Harriett (Customers and participants know who she is). We are here to help, if you have questions or problems with your project, participants and fellow crocheters contact me. My mother is also somewhat of a crochet doctor, if you run into a problem. Don't forget Crochet Club meets every 2nd Thursday of each month at 6-7:30 pm. Yes this is a contest, but the participants are willing to help each other with their projects. You may also bring you projects along to be worked on at the crochet club meetings. We look forward to fellowship and talking about the latest stitches, and styles in crocheting. The main purpose of this challenge is to bring knitters and crocheters alike to work on projects together, while sharing tips and advice, and helping each other to be motivated to finish a project before starting on another before the first is finished. I look forward to hearing from you all. Keep checking my blog to keep up with the latest and updates of the shop, products, and news.
Happy Crocheting & Knitting.
