Deal of a life time! Mary Beth Temple @Webs!

Press Release: September 25 …Join author and designer Mary Beth Temple for the free debut of her newest workshop – Design It Yourself Crochet  FOR FREE on Friday October 2 from 10 – 12pm at http://www.yarn.com/ WEBS. Even if they don’t want to design for publication, many crocheters want to design a project for themselves. While most are happy just doodling with their hooks until they get the results they want, doing just a little preparation ahead of time will make the whole process so much easier – while ensuring that you don’t run out of yarn OR patience! Handout with class notes included. If you like, bring some sketches, swatches, pencil and paper and/or a calculator to play with.

 

Now folks, this is the opportunity of a life time! I have spoken to Mary Beth on several occasions, been on her show, and organized an awards show with her. I KNOW she’ll be a fantabulous (yes, it’s a word, cause I say so!) teacher.

We complain about no classes, and this one is awesome. Obviously if you can’t get to Webs due to geography then you can’t make it! But you if you are able to go for the LOVE OF ALL THAT IS FUZZY…DO IT!

News and more on Drape Competition!

First Iwould love to share the great news that Mary Beth Temple’s Hooked for LIfe is going into it’s second printing! Hah, we kept saying the crocheters could read! Congratulatoins to Mary Beth Temple on that brilliant good news, and I have to admit that after the review here on the CLF Blog; I have read and read the book at least five times 🙂 Love it!

I WANT MORE LIKE THIS!  

By the way, it’s Monday and that means Mary Beth Temple’s LIVE podcast happens at 9pm Eastern/6 Pacific at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/mary-beth-temple! Don’t miss her show!

And more information about the competition!

Someone posed this thought/question “Is it not unfair to have lace entered or open work because they automatically drape?”

Nope. It’s not unfair, and one reason is that they do not always automatically drape. I make lace so tight I don’t need starch. And, if you use worsted weight yarn and a g hook you get stiff no matter what, you may end up with a “drapier” fabric that way, but it will not necessarily produce drape.

We want every kind of drape you can think of in crochet: Solid fabric, open work, lace, swatches of all of those…what ever. Send in your photos PLEASE!

The more PROOF we have the better, and I promise a WHOLE BLOG PAGE to the results!

Remember the competition ends August 9th! I want pictures!
