We invite all interested knitters to join us for a meeting to see if our Guild is a good fit for you. We start our business end of the meeting at 7:00, get that out of the way and move on to a program or technique of interest. It all devolves into social knitting. Good fun, good people. Learn new things about knitting and get ideas and inspiration! For additional information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

[Elections are over, you are safe for another two years!] Breathe a sigh of relief and join us for a visit from Libby Beiler of Mad About Ewes for a tour of behind the scenes while preparing and performing in Sheep to Shawl competitions. She’s a pro!

It’s election night, but not to worry, there is a slate full of volunteers to take on the jobs–you’re safe from being voluntold! So there will be a vote, a wrap on old/new business, etc. Then Cathy’s Saxon braid graft will continue until you get it right! (or not…) [There is serious homework for this proposition. Write to CentreKnitters@gmail.com if you need a refresher on exactly what needs to be ready.] Come for the fellowship and knitting, it’s the best.

For the Love of Fiber will be in the past and April Fools’ Day also over for another year (whew!) We will have a wrap-up on the Fiber Event to fill in the details of the fun. Also we are looking to set up a slate for the May elections. For the main program our Cathy Riemer will be teaching grafting in pattern using a Saxon Braid cable. There is serious homework for this proposition. Write to CentreKnitters@gmail.com if you need a refresher on exactly what needs to be ready.

This is the final organizational meeting before our For the Love of Fiber event on Saturday, March 16th. We will mostly have business having to do with preparations for this. But bring your WIPs–there’s always time for knitting! The excitement builds…!

The Mother Bear ProjectThis will be a knit-a-long to benefit the Mother Bear Project. If interested in making a bear, you must order the pattern ($5 for pattern and subsequent shipping the bear to Africa). Information can be found here: http://motherbearproject.org/pattern.html or http://motherbearproject.org. You will see that this pattern comes by snail mail, so order early!
If you are not interested in making the bear please bring charity items to work on and knit along with the Guild.
January 3rd, 2019_ Patton Township Building_6:30 – 8:30 PM Happy New Year Chelsey Fisher will teach knitting with beads. She will teach both putting beads on with a crochet hook and stringing them on the yarn. Bring a swatch in the yarn weight of your choice and beads to go with it. Example: for fingering yarn you would use a size 6 bead and with worsted yarn pony beads will work. Bring a crochet hook that fits through the hole of the bead and plenty of patience.
