HHCC'ers Prepare for The Big E

Entering items into The Big E On Saturday, HHCC'ers Diane, Elaine, Grace, Dee and Ruth, traveled up to West Springfield, MA, to enter various crochet works into the Eastern States Exposition. Sarah, the coordinator of the needlecraft competition, remarked that this year they are seeing a big increase in the number of entries, and they are absolutely thrilled!Elaine and her treasured books!

For the return trip home our HHCC'ers enjoyed a "Yarn Shop Crawl," visiting WEBs (including their bead shop), Northampton Wools, and Creative Fibers. They also stopped at Sylvesters for a fantastic (and very filling!) lunch. Elaine and Grace were thrilled to find crochet & knit books that were on their lists; Diane and Ruth loaded up on yarn; and Dee finally got her professional blocking board. Very happy shoppers indeed!Diane single-handedly stimulates the State of Massachusetts economy

HHCC members will be returning to The Big E on Wednesday, September 22, well known as CONNECTICUT DAY, to promote & teach the art of crochet in the New England State Building. This will be the Club's EIGHTH year participating -- and this year will also include a Fashion Show featuring CROCHETED SHAWLS from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM!!!!

Hope to see you there!
