Annual Book Sale
We have a double-feature for our meetings this coming month:
Both meetings in September will feature our ANNUAL BOOK SALE to benefit the guild.
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.
Checks accepted, cash preferred (easier on the Treasurer).
The books left over 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. [Note: Keep in mind that we are only selling to ourselves, so there isn’t an audience for large quantities of books.]
This is a great opportunity to pick up something to read for the September retreat weekend!
Also in September, we will launch THIS YEAR’S KNIT-ALONG, The February Lady Sweater. Copies of the pattern will be available at both meetings and we’ll discuss appropriate yarn, sizing tips, and how to stay connected. If you want to get a head start, you can find the pattern at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/february-lady-sweater Our informal deadline for finishing our sweaters is, of course, February!
The NIGHT MEETING will be on Tuesday evening, September 8, 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 17, from 10:15 a.m. to 12:15 at Vintage Faith Church (aka The Abbey), the large brick church at the corner of Mission and Highland.
