June Meeting -- Crocheting with fabric strips

For our June 22nd meeting, Christine McElhone will be teaching us how to crochet with fabric strips.  If you want to plan ahead, strips should be about 1.5" or 1" wide.  The length can vary, but 10" or more works best.  There is no need to sew the strips together -- simply cut a slit approximately 1/2" long VERTICALLY at both ends of the strips (about a 1/2" from the ends) and Christine will show us how to join them together or you can watch this helpful video:   You will also need a P or Q crochet hook. 

We will be in the Van Deusen Room at the Kalamazoo Library downtown at 9:30.  Hope to see you there!
