Summer 2012 Crochet Show Update

I’m back from New Hampshire! Along the way I visited family, friends, and museums and filled up my car with lots of fabulous stuff!

The tapestry crochet classes I taught at the Crochet Guild of America Knit & Crochet Show were great fun – beginning with the Bead Bracelet class. Everyone learned something – even me!

After being taught how to use tapestry crochet graph paper, several of the ladies designed their own motifs.

Karen Ballard incorporated cool cats into her bracelet.

Almost everyone finished their bracelet during the six hour class.

Becky Barker correctly steam ironed the bracelet that she designed from the side of the cloth without beads.

The three hour Bead Felted class was small, but again, everyone picked up new skills and shared a lot.

The Flat Tapestry class went by very quickly; there was so much to remember and practice in three hours!

These brave women tried both methods; switching hands every other row and turning the piece over and inserting the hook from the back. As usual, most preferred NOT to switch hands.

Anyway, my exciting 18 day trip is behind me – and it’s wonderful to be back home again, too.
