Next meeting for milkbag crocheters — Nov. 11

The next meeting for people who want to learn how to crochet milkbags — or just come and be with other like-minded crocheters 🙂 — will be on Nov. 11, from 1 to 3pm, at the Woodroffe/Strandherd Metro store (the store will be closed until 12:30, to observe Remembrance Day). We meet in the small cafe, tucked in behind the Take Out Food counter; follow the signs.

While it’s always nice to have your own (sharp) pair of scissors and crochet hook (size 8 or 9mm — this link shows comparisons of UK/Canadian, US, and metric sizing),  we will have these on hand, to get you started. And, of course, we have plenty of milkbags, already sorted by colour. If you do have milkbags, bring them for the Metro’s plastic bag recycle bin — no need for any milkbags to ever go into the regular garbage!

We have samples of sitting mats (roughly 2 x 2 ft), sleeping mats (3 x 5-6 ft for adults, 3 x 4 ft for children), and shoulder bags, so you can choose what you’d like to undertake.

Meetings are the 2nd Monday of every month. The meeting after this will be Dec. 9.

Come out and see the surprising things that a milkbag can be turned into!
