We have a lot going on at the upcoming meetings of the Knitting Guild of Santa Cruz!
Both meetings in September will feature our Annual Book Sale to benefit the guild. In addition this year, ***at the night meeting only,*** we are happy to welcome author Rachael Herron for a reading and author talk. Rachael is the bestselling author of the Cypress Hollow series of romance-comedy novels featuring knitters, yarn shops, and more in the fictional Central Coast California town of Cypress Hollow. She is also the author of the memoir A Life in Stitches, praised by Publishers Weekly: “Herron, who is young…enough to sit in bars and knit socks without looking like a nut, turns in honest, well-considered appraisals of choices she’s made, turns she’s taken, and people she’s known.” Rachael lives in Oakland, is an avid knitter when she is not writing, and is also a 911 fire/medical dispatcher (you may have read her essay about this in a recent issue of Interweave Knits). We’re excited to have Rachael with us on Tuesday evening, September 9.
For the book sale at both meetings in September, please donate any books you no longer want, as long as they are not textbooks. We accept fiction, non-fiction, hard cover, paperback, and of course any knitting related books. The proceeds from this sale will go to the guild coffers for programs and education.
Paperbacks will be sold at 50 cents.
Hardbacks will be sold at $1.
Magazines and patterns 50 cents.
Knitting books will be priced (in general) $1 to $5, and the pricing will be done by the person who donates the book. Feel free to put a price you think is fair. Price stickers will be available.
Checks accepted, cash preferred (easier on the Treasurer).
The books from Tuesday night will be offered again at the day meeting and then leftovers will be donated to the SC Public Library or taken to Logos. The member in charge of disposal decides.
This is a great opportunity to pick up something to read for the September retreat weekend!
The NIGHT MEETING will be on Tuesday evening, September 9, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Fireside Room at St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church, 2500 Soquel Ave.
The DAY MEETING will be on Thursday, September 18, from 10 a.m. to noon at Holy Cross Church in Santa Cruz, in the meeting room by the gym, toward the back of the complex.
