Curious About Crochet

One of the greatest things about crochet is that you don’t have to invest in fancy, new materials or find room in your house to store a bunch of equipment. With just a simple hook, a skein of yarn and a nice, comfy place to sit, you can begin enjoying all the benefits this craft provides. In the Beginner Class, we’ll get you started with a few basic stitches and show you how to read a pattern. You’ll leave this class with a Granny Square lap afghan and a new hobby. Please bring to class a size K crochet hook and one skein of 4-ply yarn in a light color. The Intermediate Class is for those who know the basic stitches and can read a basic pattern.  You will learn advanced stitches to crochet stand-up flowers and make advanced stitches for afghan and pillows. Bring your “yarn stash” (especially green for the leaves) and hooks. (Once you’ve begun your new hobby, join us for Hooked on Crochet below.) Ages 50+.  Instructor: Berniece Wilkins.  Registration deadlines: January 2 and 4 . Min. 4. Max. 5.

Creative Quilting

Thursdays, 1:00-4:00 p.m.

Community Center, 233 W. Main St.

Creative quilting has much in common with the quilting bee, an extremely popular social event in the mid-nineteenth century. It provides an opportunity to meet other quilters, make new friends, share ideas and express your artistic capabilities. Rather than everyone working on one common quilt, however, you are encouraged to bring your current quilting project to work on. An iron and ironing board will be set up for your use and large tables available for laying out your quilt. Ages 50+. There is no need to call ahead. Drop-in fee: $1

Writing Your Memoirs

You don’t need to have a hardscrabble youth or eccentric parents to write a memoir. You don’t need to have lived a life of drama . . . and you don’t have to publish it. A memoir is about handing over your life to someone and saying, “This is what I went through, this is who I am, and maybe you can learn something from it.” It’s about creating a legacy that doesn’t have dollar signs in front of it but has a far greater residual value for family and friends.  It’s a gift that only you can share. Let author Linda Wade help you put pen to paper and begin to tell your story. Ages 50+.  Registration deadline: January 10.   Min. 6. Max. 12.
