3D Hooking

Our Guild held a meeting at the beautiful new Library/Community Center in Millcreek and we learned all about hooking and finishing 3D items. Angela did a great job of teaching and demonstrating for us. She lugged two sewing machines so we could use them for stay stitching around the edges of each piece - Myra is taking advantage of one of them to prepare her monks cloth for making a birdhouse.

Angela is making a bee skep and it's going to be so cute! Look how perfectly the lines match up on her two pieces - she will add a third and maybe a fourth by the time it's completely finished and it will be able to stand freely.

Jennifer & her daughter Emma sat side by side and designed their projects on paper first - - -

- - - they got a lot done by the end of the meeting.

Nancy is making a little case to hold her eyeglasses and keep them from getting scratched.

Londi & Pat cut all these beautifully colored wool strips to hook their strawberry pillows.

This is the first siting we've ever had of Londi actually holding a hook in her hand! WooHoo!

Pat pulls her first few loops.

We had a 'good wishes' tree there for writing messages & giving advice to Leah who is getting married soon. Congrats Leah!

We learned a few more details about the upcoming workshop with Sharon Smith - it's going to be fabulous!

At our next meeting in Riverdale we will learn all about dyeing with natural materials. See ya then.
