Quick Stitch Crochet again

Remember the cover I posted for the book Quick Stitch Crochet on Feb. 23, 2008? I saw the cover on Amazon's listing for the book, and I was so thrilled that my patterns were featured on it. Today, however, Carol M. sent me a message that she got her copy of the book, and that wasn't the cover. But - what was on the cover was another of my designs - an afghan. Of course, I forgot what afghan I designed for this book, so I had to search the web to see it. I found it on Annie's Attic, and here is the new cover:

The book is available now at Annie's Attic or Amazon.

The Knit and Crochet Show 2008

If you are thinking about attending the summer 2008 Knit and Crochet Show in Manchester, New Hampshire, and want to take some classes there, on-line registration begins March 24th! Classes start on July 24th, and continue through July 27th (Thursday through Sunday.) The shopping starts on July 25th, and goes through July 27th (Friday through Sunday.)
I am lucky that I have been chosen to be one the crochet teachers. I'll be teaching 7 classes! Yes, 7. There are 8 time slots. So, you may be asking yourself, why aren't you teaching 8 classes? Well, during that 8th time slot, I'll be at the CGOA Board Meeting! I'm going to have a busy week in Manchester!
If you've never been to one of these crochet and knit fests, you need to do yourself a favor and come. Not only are the teachers nationally and internationally known designers and teachers, there is also a marketplace,with yarn, yarn, yarn, and even more yarn. Did I say there was yarn? :-)
If you want a list of the classes, and see all the events that will be going on (fashion shows, auctions, kids' programs, Professional Development Day, banquets, 24 hour knit and crochet lounge, and much more), check out right now. (Classes fill up fast - reserve a space in the ones you want!)
