HHCC Plans to Celebrate Ninth Anniversary!

The month of October marks the HHCC's Ninth Anniversary. For the October meeting, open only to current members, The HHCC is pleased to welcome two guests:

Crista Grasso studied art in college at both The University of Connecticut and Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. Art has been a part of her life for as long as she can remember, and with the urging of family and friends, she created her AmberTortoise Creations business in 2005, featuring her unique hand-made jewelry.

Crista draws inspiration from the world around her, primarily from the beautiful and sometimes surprising color combinations and textures in mother nature. Crista says, "Jewelry says so much about a person! It reflects your personality, your mood, your interests... It can say I am bold and adventurous, I am a little quiet and reserved, I am a happy person who loves life, or maybe that you are all of those things~ I know I am!"

Crista will be teaching The HHCC members how to make unique jewelry stitch markers for their crochet and knit projects.

HHCC Members will need to visit this webpage and pre-order their bead kits:

Jeremy Pollack, co-author of Photographing New York City Digital Field Guide (Digital Field Guides),  is a Connecticut-based photographer with a wide range of interests. Growing up in the woods, his first love has always been nature photography which he started shooting with his father's Canon FT QL. As his passion grew over the years, so did the breadth of his interests. Today he shoots commercial and fine art photography, selling prints at art shows and online.

Jeremy will be offering Club Members instruction on how to create their own homemade Light Boxes for taking better pictures of their crocheted, and knitted, projects.  Jeremy will include discussion on why the biggest enemy is a flash right in the line of the camera, provide hands-on interaction, and a demonstration of importing, sorting, uploading -- and more!  Jeremy will be happy to autograph his book for HHCC members who bring it to the Anniversary Meeting.
