The 2 hour Crochet Hat on a Monday Morning, January 5, 2015.

Gasp! Avert your eyes! This page is in the middle of writing, it is not decent enough YET for coherent reading! Please “like” Castle of Costa Mesa on facebook page and I will let you know when this page is presentable! Thanks! Ciao! – Jzin

Thank you Christine Newell for the crafting joy you bring!

Today, our Waldorf School of Orange County craft group gathered in the lovely garden outside of The Company of Angels store to needle-felt a mouse in his pumpkin house. The size of Pumpkins are approximately 7 inches wide and 3 to 4 inches high. Supplies fees for today was $15.

Some crafters worked on Knit-A-Square for charity for Knit-A-Purlooza.

I am adding a feature at the bottom of this page where each week I highlight the works of some members of our community. This way, we can can be the support for one another! Please E-mail me if you want me to feature you. My e-mail is: Jzinius@yahoo.com.

This week, I am featuring several of our Waldorf families who will be selling their handmade goodies at The Journey Waldorf School’s Harvest Faire in Aliso Viejo. Please come, enjoy this festival and support them as well. Click here for more info on the bottom of this page.

One of our diligent crafters here will be performing at the world-famous TED conference in early November. Who is it? You can come attend her performance before she leaves for her Europe concert.  Click here for more information.
