Handicraft Overview for 2010

Focus: Knitting & Crocheting

As a group we are going to work on Knitting & Crocheting this year.  The levels below explain the steps to accomplishing each level.  


Choose and read at least one How-to book on either knitting or crocheting.  If this handicraft is not new to you, research books and magazines to find a project at your level.  Try to read at least one book or magazine cover to cover.  


Decide on a project and purchase all the necessary supplies.  Yes... it is as simple as that.  You just need to choose one project for either knitting or crocheting... not both.  Make sure you have completed the Mountaineer level as well.


Complete the project that you chose at the Inspirator level.  All assignments from the previous levels must be completed.


Do a project for both knitting and crocheting.  You must complete all previous levels for both handicrafts and completely finish both projects to qualify for this achievement.  Take some pictures and share with the email list what you have created.  Enjoy!

Optionally, you could choose to work on a different or additional handicraft of your choice.  A list of possible handicrafts are: sewing, crocheting, knitting, calligraphy, cross-stitching, embroidery, hardanger, latch hooking, plastic canvas, drawing/painting, braided rugs, rubber stamping, candlemaking, soapmaking, weaving, scrapbooking, photography, cake decorating, floral arranging, macrame, stenciling, doll making, beadwork, and/or quilling.

If you choose an optional handicraft... you can complete the levels above by following the same steps for your handicraft of choice.  To get the Summiteer level you will need to complete 2 different handicraft projects of your choice.

You will find some book and resource suggestions for all these handicrafts on our Extra Reading/Resource List for Handicrafts as we develop it.
