May & June 2012 Meeting Details

At the May meeting, HHCC members donated eight red scarves to the WomenHeart drive while Anna provided more information about this organization.  Want to learn more about WomenHeart?  Check out this video.  The red scarves collected - a symbol of care and support for women with heart disease - are to be distributed in NY.

Upon request, Dee brought in her "hot off the hook project," a Delta Lace Topper (pattern found in Karen Whooley's booklet, "Learn to Delta Lace Crochet,") and provided members with another demonstration on how to steam block (the last time she did this demo was in 2010);

members were amazed to see the before and after results.  Dee also advised members that the pattern book is currently on sale at -- and to remember to utilize their CGOA Member Discount when ordering.

Donations for the Salvation Army drive, and for the Elizabeth House were collected, which included an afghan hand crocheted by Rosalie.

At the June meeting, since the Danbury Library is closed on Sundays during the summer months, HHCC member Margaret Hubert graciously hosted the meeting.  HHCC President, Grace, presented a delicious cake in honor of Margaret to be inducted into the CGOA's Jean Leinhauser Crochet Hall of Fame next month.

More donations for the Salvation Army and for the Elizabeth House were turned in, including an afghan hand crocheted by Theresa's mother.  Everyone had a great time!  :)
