Chat n Craft FB group

Since we are not meeting in person we have found a way to meet virtually. If you are on Facebook, you can join our group CnC JPL. You will have to search for the group or you can ask someone who is already a member. After you are accepted you will be able to join our 2x a month FB CnC JPL room where we work on our projects, talk and laugh with each other. The rest of the month you can post pics of what you have completed or working on.

We meet in the FB CnC JPL room at 6pm on the first Tuesday of the month and on the third Monday of the month.

Don’t forget to check back here, on our website, for patterns to work on and to see what else we have going on.

This picture on this post is a wreath we made in the fall of 2017.

CnC Zoom Meeting

We are going to try Zooming again on Monday, July 20, 2020, 6:30pm. For those that remember, for years we met on the 3rd Monday of every month. We are going to try that again, only Zooming. Check back here or our blog for the new Zoom login info.

Chat n Craft Zoomed

We had our first Zoom meeting, last Friday, July 3, 2020. We had fun seeing each other for the first time in a few months and talked about future Zoom meetings and continuing the Zooming after we eventually will be able to have the inside the Library monthly meeting again.

We are leaning towards a monthly Zoom session around the middle of the month. Same time each month. Think about what time would be good for you. Then go to our blog and comment on the times that would be best. Afternoon or Evening? Weekday or a Saturday? I have not made a poll yet but am hoping to get several comments first.

CnC blog to comment on

The Library is open to the public but our meeting rooms are not open yet. I have had several CnC members ask when will be able to meet again. We are trying to figure out a way. I am wanting your ideas on what you would like. You are very creative, we can come up with something. I have put up the Blossom Stitch Washcloth we were going to do in April. Realized we need a place for you to comment with ideas without having to come into the library.

Remembering we used to use a blog that allowed commenting, I dusted it off and made a post you can comment on there.

Think about – Do you Zoom? Day/week/time you would be available? Post patterns and youtubes to learn a new stitch or ???

Let us know what you come up with. I will make a poll later from what you comment on and we can narrow it down. Look forward to seeing what you come up with. Go to the blog and post your comments.

November is a BYOP (Bring Your Own Project) month, bring anything you are working on to work on. We also discuss what classes we would like to see next year. Please bring an example, at least a picture of what it is. We need to pick out 6 different projects. I will bring the laptop in case we want to look it up online so everyone can see.

Bring your Show n Tell. I will try to make sure we have a camera to take pictures. Sorry I did not have it last month. If you were not at the meeting you missed some gorgeous items.

October 1, 2019 – Chat n Craft meeting

Chat n Craft meets the first Tuesday of each month that the library is open.

We have been working on quilt blocks every month this year. We are going to discuss how to put the blocks together to make a throw. The different variations we can choose from. Hopefully I will have all 9 of my blocks completed and bring them in so we can play with different ideas. If you are welcome to bring in some graph paper and pencil to sketch some ideas for your assembled quilt.

You are always welcome to Bring Your Own Project to work on. Don’t forget to bring some Show n Tell.
