CLF NEWS: Retreat Update

Ok crochet fans…Just a reminder that I’m working on the webpages for the retreat. I’m ALMOST done. It’s not hard to make the pages, but I was trying to figure out the logistics of how to set them up, and I have finally figured out the simplest route.

Now as you know this retreat is a bit different, people will register for their classes with the individual instructors after they sign up for the retreat…making the pages work so that you didn’t have a GAGILLION pages to surf through was my issues, and I think I have solved it 😉

The retreat will only have three hours of formal class time in the morning, but the rest of each day will be full or creative crochet opportunity with a fun packed program each night!

Teachers will be:

Deborah Burger (cerdeb on Ravelry), Bonnie Pierce (Nationally reknown freeforming Diva), Jim “Jimbo” Price (Hook maker extraordinaire), Laurie Wheeler (aka Fearless Leader), and Karen Whooley (Nationally known crochet teacher and prolific author).  Guest speakers will include, Andee Graves, Jim Price and myself and we’ll have a yarn tasting!!

Big thanks to the Center for Wooden Boats for partnering with us on this event! Remember to book your cabins or bed and breakfast accomodations now! You can find more information on our Website, and I should have everything ready for registration by the end of  this coming week.

Crocheting up a storm!

The weather in the Pacific Northwest finally came back from where ever it was hiding all summer! We’ve had lovely rain storms that have soaked the garden (and oh my pumpkins and squash are so happy!), and the urge to crochet was watered as well!

After my dear friend Ann gifted me with any 5 skeins of her hand spun for my birthday, I had contemplated on what to do with the hand spun love! Three of the skeins became hats (they are short skeins), and two await my lace making pleasure (yummy silks!).

It also felt right to get back to the CLF Adult book Crochet In Chains in earnest!  5 more patterns flawlessly formatted in an unbelievably stress free work session. Though I am writing 3 more “patterns” though they are more like recipes, for “quickie” and “sexy” things to adorn ourselves! And they can be worn outside the boudoir as much as in it! (Well, let’s just say my younger and much hipper friends might…I would silly…mutton dressed as lamb and all that!)

Thoughts are also turning to the CLF retreat in 2010 that doesn’t feel all that far away now that we are almost a year out! It will be held at Cama Beach State Park on Camano Island in WA…you can see photos of it here at http://www.crochetliberationfront.com/camabeachphotos.html. You can also see a lovely inside shot of the cabins in the latest Sunset Magazine issue, Cama Beach State Park was rated in the top 10 hide away treasures on the West Coast, and the only one from Washington State!

So, now that I have you excited know that I’m working hard to get the whole shabangy organized!
