Enter a whole new world of finishing.
September – Book Sale and discussion.
Bring in the books you no longer need (knitting or not) to sell.
Bring in your list of favorite books about knitters and by knitters, from Mme. Defarge to Sue Grafton to Maggie Sefton.
Tell us why you recommend them. (“Because I do.” is an OK answer!)
Find a book to take to the retreat.
October – Meet the Yarniacs
Share your last-minute gift ideas
December – Party
the party, of course, with Mr. Wright and Mrs. Wright and Grandma Wright and Snowball
Did you notice a few blank months? (TBD) We are still looking for members to suggest and present a few more programs.
Suggestions: Beading, making buttons, knitting with wire, intarsia
As always, sharing your favorite tips and tricks can open a whole world of knitting to other members – we’ll be looking to you at the meetings!
And we haven’t forgotten the Technology classes we keep promising. We just have to figure out how to present them to a group.
