Is June the month?

Is June the month that YOU become a knitter or crocheter?  

I have updated my calendar (to the right, click on each date for more details) and my class schedule (tabs above).

I teach at the Avon Michaels and offer assistance at 2 Indy Public Library locations.

At Michaels, there is a cost of $25 for each 2 1/2 hour class.  You'd receive handouts, patterns and practically private lessons for basic instructions on Thursday evenings.

Also at Michaels, I offer "special" classes one Sunday a month. These are for students who have some experience in either knit or crochet.  In June we'll make Sock Monkeys.

At the libraries, (Haughville & College Ave) I offer assistance for FREE.  You'd need to bring your own projects and supplies.  I'll help but won't provide handouts or patterns.

If you have any questions, contact me here on my blog or email me at

I hope to knit or crochet with you soon!

What was I thinking?

My crazy busy life has slowed down, at least for the time being.  I had sooooo much  going on even I felt overwhelmed, which very rarely happens.

The new grand baby came a week early ( all are healthy and well.  Grand baby #4 is due in June)
My daughter graduated from Purdue University (she has a job already and will be moving to Dallas, TX)
I presented at a Library Conference (shared some of my story time techniques)
A library committee I serve on had a BIG program ( we addressed the issue of Re-Entry)
In 21 days I taught 6 knit or crochet classes (what was I thinking?)

And that's just what happened the week before last!

I took last week off and just laid around.  I didn't even do any knitting or crocheting, so you know I was exhausted!

But now I'm re-energized and excited about what comes next!

Tunisian Crochet Class

I realize I haven't written in a while, things have been so hectic! In the midst of it all, I'm having a special class this Sunday, May 5th at the Avon Michaels. 

I will teach Tunisian crochet and those who attend will get to make the pictured pillow.  An original designed by yours truly!  The class will be from 2:00-4:30.

I will do a demo of this technique at the Avon Michaels on Saturday, May 4th from 3-5.

Tunisian crochet hooks.  They're long like knitting needles and have a hook on the end.  One stitch used is the Tunisian knit stitch which looks just like knitting but you crochet it!
