The month of August seems to be a time for members and friends of the Guild to make last minute vacation plans! So in that regard we’ve punted and pitch hit a little to knit a program together. (Just how many sports is that?)
This month we welcome Sara Jessen as Program Speaker for the guild. Sara is one of the three partners of Knit Sew Make, the Guild’s newest business member. Sara writes:
“Some of you know me from Yarns By The Sea, where I worked a few years ago. I learned to knit and crochet when I was 3 from my auntie and crocheted for many, many years. I picked up knitting about 15 years ago and now it’s my life! When the yarn shop closed, I attended massage school and have been a licensed massage therapist for 4 years. I love it almost as much as knitting!
“But, last summer another opportunity knocked. Heddi Craft and I were talking about teaching opportunities and I mentioned that in a perfect world I would love to have my own office/studio space just for teaching. Heddi loved that idea and ran with it. She mentioned a sewist friend who was also looking for a place to teach her classes. The three of us started brainstorming and Knit Sew Make was the outcome of that.”
We anxiously await hearing more about what Knit Sew Make is all about, how it was founded and seeing Sara again.
**We will also discuss the progress on our sweaters. Each of us should be expected to say something, good or bad, easy or difficult regarding the yarn, pattern, or whatever, about the sweater they are making with the idea of giving others lessons learned or ideas for their next sweater.** Be prepared to tell us if there is any help you need from the group to finish up your sweater by November.
