I'm good with any decision - 4, 5, 8, 10...  Just let me know!  I'm going to be making a whole bunch of both items for gifts, so I'll be "good" any way we go.

Glad you guys like to ornaments I picked  Cheesy  The pickle just made me laugh & I loooove the yarn basket, too.  It looks like we're all offering some awesome ornaments!!  I don't know how to do a top 10 list!

Hi everyone  Cheesy  So excited to join this swap!!  I'll be making 2 different ornaments (5 of each) - one will be a Christmas Pickle and the other will be a Basket of Yarn.

Both patterns were found on Ravelry: the pickle is from Knit Picks & the basket is from Debbie Stoller's Stitch Nation

666  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Seeking Advice for New Crochet Club for ESL Students on: September 21, 2011 10:05:15 AM
Hi everyone!

I'm starting up a crochet for charity club for students in the ESL department at the university where I work.  I meet a lot of really friendly but quiet students who want to get involved and practice chatting in English while volunteering, but are too shy to sign-up for the more common charities or events that are available on campus.  It's an idea I've been wanting to put in to practice for years, but have been too busy.  It's time!!!  We're going to be making little toy animals and dolls to send to kids in Namibia. Our international department sends a group of volunteers to Namibia each year to do builds and help out where needed, and this group will take the toys along with them to give to kids in the schools & villages that they visit.

Our first meeting is next Tuesday and I have no idea what to expect!!  There are 500 students in our program and I'm a little terrified that I'll either get way too many people, or no one at all!  I'm planning to have the coordinator of the Namibia trip come and do a short presentation to the group and show them some photos of the kids she has met over the years, and then to hand out 'how to crochet' instructions to the group and show them some of the toys I've made for the cause.  I plan to teach everyone how to crochet using a combo of you tube videos, handouts & personal guidance and have my fingers crossed that at least one or two other experienced crocheters will join me...  Undecided

So far I've received 3 yarn donations and one offer for financial support, so we're on our way.  I'm just terrified of the unknown of the initial meeting...  I'm desperately seeking advice &/or suggestions!

We've been trying to decide whether to buy hooks for everyone to use while they are at the club meetings, or if we should have each person buy their own...  What do you think?  I'd like to know how other charity club organizers have approached the start-up of their clubs - What have people brought with them, what have they expected from you, etc.

If you have any patterns that you'd like to offer the group to use for free, please let me know~ I will be sure to share them with our students and send you photos of completed projects once I have some!

Thanks in advance,

Koreen  Grin
