Easy Beaded Scrunchie
10 Years of Just Plain Fun!The month of March marks the 10th anniversary of Just Plain Fun! Back on March 15, 1998 I published my first newsletter online to about 30 subscribers. It had 12 crochet patterns, a crochet lesson, a crochet stitch and a helpful hint plus other bits of information I really cannot remember. I actually started crocheting the patterns in February of 1998 but it was March 15, 1998 when I actually sent out the first newsletter. Back then it was known as the JPF Crochet Newsletter. I charged $12.00 for a year's subscription to the newsletter.
Boy, a lot has changed since then!
