May 2014 Meeting

Hi knitters,
 
OK, so now you’ve finished, or are close to finishing, your Baby Surprise Jacket.  Just who is this crazy knitting designer Elizabeth Zimmermann and how did she come up with such an unusual pattern?
 
It’s not just the Baby Surprise Jacket, but many other quirky tips and interesting patterns that Elizabeth Zimmermann (a/k/a EZ) is famous for, plus a whole philosophy of knitting.
 
Our Guild programs in May feature Barbara Bautz’s overview of EZ’s life and work.  Not just a knitwear designer but also a terrific writer and storyteller, Elizabeth Zimmermann has charmed knitters and non-knitters alike for generations.  Her legacy lives on in the work of her daughter, Meg Swansen, and grandson, Cully Swansen, through their publishing house, Schoolhouse Press.
 
Join us in May to find out more about knitting icon Elizabeth Zimmermann.  Bring your finished BSJ, and if you haven’t finished yet, well then, in EZ’s words, “PRESS ON!”
 
As usual, we’ll have our regular business meeting and announcements, and we’ll have a swift and ball winder available if you need it.
 
The NIGHT MEETING will be on Tuesday evening, May 13, 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, May 15, 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.
 
Hope you can make it,
Tamsin
