Our only members only event!
Knitting Guild of Santa Cruz
Tuesday, December 9, 6:00 p.m.
St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church (see directions below)
We will enjoy our usual fabulous pot luck dinner, conduct a very brief (!!) business meeting, and then have our annual holiday gift exchange! And featuring again this year: Silent Auction (details below)
5:30 Setup – Bidding for Silent Auction begins
6:00-7:00 Potluck Dinner
7:00-7:15 Annual meeting
7:15-8:00 Gift exchange – Silent Auction closes
8:00-8:30 Cleanup (we have to be cleaned up and out by 8:30, so volunteers to help will be greatly appreciated!)
– Bring something scrumptious for the pot luck dinner. We’re not keeping track of who’s bringing what…if there are too many desserts, well, is that really such a bad thing? Finger foods work well. Plates and utensils, cups and napkins and beverages (alcoholic and otherwise) are provided, but if your dish needs a serving spoon bring one with your name on it. Note: St. Stephen’s has allowed us access to their kitchen, but it is not adjacent to our room.
– This party and meeting is the one time a year we limit it to members only. During our brief business meeting, we’ll elect officers for 2015 and vote on a couple of minor changes to our bylaws.
– For our annual gift exchange, bring a knitting-related gift. If new, don’t spend more than $15, but re-gifting out of your stash or library (nice quality, of course) works, too. As we did last year, we’ll have a hilarious game that will result in swapping gifts. If you don’t know what this means, come and find out!
– Our charity project this year features a Silent Auction of fabulous, high quality yarns in project-appropriate amounts. Here’s your chance to grab some fine yarns to give as gifts or just to pamper yourself. Be sure to bring cash or your checkbook. Proceeds from the sale of the yarn will go to the Blaine Street Project for them to purchase yarn and supplies for their work at the women’s jail.
If you have any questions about the party, contact Martha Dexter, 831-600-8834 or firstname.lastname@example.org
