Richmond Area Yarn Swap, Potluck Luncheon and Mini Dollar Daze
May 23 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
Our Richmond Area Yarn Swap, Leftovers Workshop and Potluck Luncheon has been scheduled for Saturday, May 23, 2020, from 10:00am until 3:00pm at the Brandermill Church in Midlothian.
We will be offering two classes on “How to Make a Log Cabin Blanket”, one crochet and one knit. The classes will not be offered at the same time, to give those who would like to attend both the opportunity to do so. Log Cabin blankets are usually created using leftover yarn so this is an excellent opportunity to learn a new technique to use up your odds and ends, but also something which we can use in our From the Heart mission. We will be using the weaving in ends method described in the Tip of the Month for our knitted Log Cabin (see below)
Yarn, hooks, and needles will be supplied for your use at the classes. We will, however, have plenty of leftovers on hand if you want to take some home and make a blanket for From the Heart.
We are also planning to have a yarn swap so bring along any yarn you have had for a while but now know you will not use. You will have the opportunity to swap it for something you think you might use. All skeins must be new, clean, and unused.
We will have a mini-raffle and a few small door prizes.
Lunch will be in the form of a potluck so make your favorite dish, salad, or dessert to share. There are a few, but not many, electrical outlets we can use to keep hot dishes hot.
Mark your calendars now so you don’t forget and please let Tricia know if you plan to attend, so that we can have sufficient ice, drinks, utensils, etc. on hand. Tricia can be reached, by phone, at (804)683-9015 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
