January Meeting

Thanks to all those who came on Tuesday 4th January….. apologies for the issues with the Phoenix closing at 8pm but I hope you all enjoyed the evening.
January was all about crocheted granny squares….
I think you all did really well in a short period of time…. don’t forget to keep practicing!
It was lovely to have 4 new people joining us…..
Here’s a few things that were being made….
And not forgetting this masterpiece

As we had to cut this meeting short I thought we’d continue with granny squares in February.
Please bring yarn & a number 4 hook if you would like to join in.
See you all on Tuesday 1st February.
If you would like to learn a new craft please email me.
