HHCC September 2010 Meeting

The HHCC would like to welcome Cathy and Zipporah as our newest members!

What a great turn out -- in fact, the HHCC is currently working with the hotel to see if an even larger meeting room is available!!! (Details to be announced.)

Dee has 3 pins left. The scarves will be added to crocheted hats, mittens or gloves, in the coming months. In early December they will be donated to the Salvation Army located in Danbury; helping children and their family members stay warm during the cold winter months.

Earlier this year HHCC members came to Dee's aid in helping to crochet 30 shawls for a school production of Fiddler on the Roof. The DVD of that play was aired at the meeting, letting all the members see how their shawls made the show! (Note: The shawls will be featured in a Fashion Show at The Big E on Wednesday, September 22nd, in the New England State Building from 3PM to 4PM. Afterwards they will be donated to a charity in need.) Everyone enjoyed seeing the shawls in action!

Show'n Tell is always fun. Ann showed off a motif afghan that is currently on her hook; new member Zip showed the vest she's working on (and that she hand-spun the yarn for!), and Diane showed a shawl she knitted that "magically striped up." Dee brought a rare "Chester" brand Tunisian crochet hook to the meeting and presented it as a gift to HHCC President, Grace. Grace was thrilled! (see hook in top picture)

What is next for the HHCC? Stay tuned!
