Crochet Club 4th quarter project- Macrame plant hanger

Starting in the 4th quarter, the crochet club will be making macrame plant hangers. This can be done with many types of string or yarn, so you don’t have to use the recommended material if they are unavailable to you. We will begin March 16th. This is a great project for Mother’s Day! 


Materials:

  1. Macrame cord (3mm or 4 mm) or cotton yarn (it shouldn’t stretch too much or plants will slip through) plan for using at least 4-5 m’ of cord since the knots will use up most of the cord. Here is one option at Michaels

  2. Macrame ring- I will have wooden rings available on first come first serve basis, otherwise this is an optional piece

  3. Optional accessories: wooden or plastic beads (make sure the hole is large enough to fit the cord or yarn

 

Do you have some books in good condition that you won’t read again?  The library and STUCO are sponsoring a book drive to help build a growing library in Zambia.  You can bring you gently used books to the MS library and we will help get them on the boat to Zambia. Books for PreK to Adults needed. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chromebook charging tip: Sometimes your chromebook is in a sleep mode and is not charging, even when plugged in. Check to see that the small red light beside the charger is lit when plugged in. If not, open and hold the refresh button and power button together, then release to reset the chromebook.  Then, plug the unit in and the red light 

should appear indicating it is charging. You should always see the red light on either side near the back lit when charging.
