Top-Down With Lily in the City

Trying to find time on Friday to do my homework for Saturday's class was more difficult than finding a needle in a haystack.  However, I did manage to locate a few missing tapestry needles ...

enjoying one of Lily's great classes in NYCEarly Saturday morning I met up with Grace at the commuter parking lot and we were then off to New York City to join other members of the New York City Crochet Guild for the class, "Crocheting From the Top Down" workshop with Lily Chin. 

Even though I only completed about 50% of my homework, I found the class to be fantastic!  We went over every type of sweater construction one could think of -- from side to side, raglan, drop shoulder, and more!  We even got to witness Lily blushing (I will hint that there was some winking involved, but that's all the detail I'll publicly share.  lol)

By the time the class was over my mind was already full of ideas, one of which I hope to chronicle here to be judged later this summer.  I plan to name the entry, “Yes, it’s ENTIRELY Crocheted” and it will include three different crochet techniques that will make the judges wonder “what is crochet, what is knit?” (that's a "whole 'nother topic for a different day.)

Thanks for anther very informative class, Lily!   Big winks, ~D.

This is Denise.   I called the New York City Crochet Guild two times and emailed them as well twice in order to attend Lily Chin's workshop and I was never called or emailed.  I wanted very much to confirm and find out the fee.   I went to the Guild at 240 East 31st Street at 9:30 and no one answered the door at the Church so I travelled from Brooklyn for nothing.  Could someone please get back to me to explain why no one ever called me so I might have had the opportunity to attend?    Thank you for any reply

Hi Denise,
I have to thank Grace for contacting them and getting all the specifics; I believe she did it via email.  The workshop was not held at their regular meeting location.

I will forward your comments here onto the NYCCG, and hopefully someone will get back to you.  I'm sorry you missed this workshop.
