So what have I been doing?

Posted in Uncategorized at 7:09 pm by Rebecca Crochets

Well, I have been crocheting!

But much of it I cannot admit to in public. I’ve been doing some contract crochet work, which many times must be kept secret!

But I’ve also been involved in planning Three Rivers Crochet’s Three Yarntini Luncheon.

All luncheon proceeds will be benefiting Rwanda Knits (www.rwandaknits.org) and the Pittsburgh Women’s Shelter (www.wcspittsburgh.org). The luncheon is being held on Saturday, February 14th, 11:30a – 1:30p, in conjunction with the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival (www.pghknitandcrochet.com). Registration in advance with the festival registration form is necessary.

For $30, we are offering a sit-down meal, hence the pre-registration, of Pecan Crusted Salmon, Chicken Asiago, Roast Top Sirloin of Beef, or Broccoli Cheddar Quiche. We are planning a fashion show where everyone and anyone can participate. There will also be items in the fashion show from my cousin, Robyn Chachula, who will be the MC for the lunch, and will be showing items from her book “Blueprint Crochet” and her pattern line, and will be signing her books. There will be prizes and baskets to win via raffle ticket with yarn, a knitting machine, hooks/needles, books, etc., totaling over $2000!! Check out the prizes at the Three Rivers Crochet blog. Caron, Southwest Trading Company, and Dark Horse Yarns, as well as many other local places have been so generous in this effort.

Registration forms must be sent by February 6th.
