Join Us June 2017 – Craftworks Summer Party

Time & Place

Sunday, June 25, 2017, 11 am – 4 pm
Craftworks, Northborough, MA

Program – Craftworks Summer Party Demos

We will be participating in Craftworks’ “Beginning of Summer Party”.

We will be demonstrating various crochet stitches and techniques, sharing some FOs (Finished Objects) and UFOs (Unfinished Objects), and answering questions visitors might have about our local group as well as the CGOA. We will also be collecting rectangles for Warm Up America, as part of the 2017 CGOA Chapter Challenge, so if you have any you would like to share, please bring ’em along! (Or plan to crochet one during the event.)

Craftworks has invited a number of vendors to the event, including highlighted participant String Theory, an independent hand dyer. Craftworks has promised a fun day of drawings, testing, camaraderie and food.
