May 2016 Program

So many knitting techniques make our knitting lives easier. But we haven’t mastered them all. Here’s your chance to catch up and learn a new technique or brush up on one you already know and haven’t used in awhile. At both our meetings in May, we’ll feature several techniques demonstrated simultaneously at different “booths” by Guild volunteers. Stop by any or all of the booths for demonstrations, handouts, and tips for when to use the technique. Here’s the menu so far, come to either or both:
