Change in HHCC Meeting Dates: April & May 2012

The HHCC usually meets on the 2nd Sunday of the month unless there is a holiday, or a CGOA Conference, conflict.  Due to Easter in April, and Mother's Day in May, the HHCC meeting rotation for these two months have been changed to the 1st Sunday of the Month. Please note the change.
Sunday, April 1, 2012
Sunday, May 6. 2012
Both meetings are scheduled to meet at the Danbury Library.

The June, July & August meetings will be "away" meetings due to the library being closed on Sundays during the summer.  These meetings will resume the normal "2nd Sunday" meeting rotation. Details to be announced.

March 2012 Meeting Highlights

HHCC Members proud of Crochet Display at the Danbury Library
The HHCC members & guests had a great time at the March meeting; some working on creating granny square rings, and other working on various projects - including knit ones.  Some members brought items in for the charity drives (Elizabeth House & Salvation Army); while others showed off their latest finished projects. 
One question that was raised is: can members process their HHCC memberships online?
The answer is yes!  Visit the Club's website at www.CrochetClubinCT.org and click onto the "WEB STORE" tab.  Select the membership that best fits you:

  • $18.00 for the year: non-CGOA member
  • $9.00 a year: a 50% savings for being a CGOA member
A paypal account is required for processing online memberships.  If you're not a CGOA (Crochet Guild of America) member, visit www.Crochet.org for more information.  The HHCC is a proud Chapter of the CGOA.

Crochet Display at the Danbury Library

Crochet on display at the Danbury Library during the month of March, 2012
With March being National Crochet Month, The HHCC membership has various crochet works on display at the Danbury Library.  The display will remain up for the entire month of March.

HHCC President Grace, and Dee (with the aid of her kids) worked together on the display.  The top shelf represents crochet from "yesteryear" - including a replica of a doily Laura Ingalls Wilder once crocheted. (Rose Wilder Lane, daughter of Laura, also crocheted; she published the book, "American Needlework."  Thanks to the efforts of The HHCC, Rose Wilder Lane has been added to Danbury's list of "Famous Residents.")

The second and bottom tier show various projects for both personal use, and for future donation to various local charities.  To show anything can be crocheted, Dee snuck in her sample of crocheted toilet paper, calling it "A crocheter's dirty little secret."

Visit the Danbury Library and see what other goodies are included in the display!  :)
