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 email@example.com
June 4, 2021_Patton Township Building_6:30 – 8:30 PM
Join us! There should be some emails going around beforehand in order to nominate and elect a new President. Chelsey has served well for quite some time and it’s now time for another to take the reins. Chelsey will have sent around a list of duties of the office of the president. Search your soul to see if you, yes, YOU, could find yourself serving the Guild in this fashion. We will all be grateful, oh New Leader! Our current Secretary, Madam Hannah Black has graciously agreed to serve on. Thank you, Hannah! So this meeting will be a surprise, but not an onerous one!
Meanwhile bring any WIPs, something to use your pointy sticks on, and some conversation ad let’s see what happens next!!!
May 6, 2021_Patton Township Building_6:30 – 8:30 PM
We’ll be back at Patton Township, large meeting room–our place–for this meeting. Since we have been staying apart there hasn’t been a good opportunity to both nominate as well as elect a new Secretary and President. This meeting won’t have the opportunity either. (We will need to do this over the etherwaves for the next meeting in June–so relax!) This month we will knit and share progress and keep up with the news of the guild.
April 1, 2021_Patton Township Building_6:30 Meeting CANCELED!!!
NO FOOLIN’! The Patton Township meeting room has been designated as a Covid Testing Site. Our meeting has been canceled for April. Back in May!!! (As a note, you can be tested for Covid for free from 10 AM until 7 PM Tuesday through Saturday, until May 1.)
This is the meeting during which we nominate for the positions of President and Secretary for our Guild.

March 4th, 2021_Patton Township Building_6:30 – 8:30 PM
YES! We will meet at the township building. We look pretty good in 3-D. Come and see!
February 4th, 2021_Patton Township Building_6:30 – 8:30 PM
We are back in the game at our usual scheme of meetings. Our VP Ruth Christensen will be leading. There is no set program since many members will not be present due to the virus situation. Those who do come will have 3-D interactions with others with needles in hand. Good lighting, good company, good knitting!
January 7th, 2021_Patton Township Building_6:30 – 8:30 PM
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!! It’s the start of a new year and let’s make sure it’s a good one! Our first Guild meeting of the year will be Thursday Jan 7 at 7pm at the Patton Twp building meeting room with social hour at 6:30pm.
If anyone wants to bring any yarn/fiber/notions/etc to give away or sell this would be a good meeting to do that. Bring your Holiday money and possibly get some new things!
Don’t forget to wear your mask and there’s plenty of space to be physically distant in the room. Hope to see you there!!
December 3rd, 2020_CANCELED
Merry Christmas to ALL! I’m afraid that this month’s meeting is canceled as Chelsey has Covid and is out of action for the near future. Everyone have a great holiday. Let’s hold on for 2021 and better days ahead.
STAY SAFE, STAY CALM, KNIT ON!
November 5th, 2020_CANCELED
The Patton Township Building is closed for the week.
After looking at the results of the survey, Chelsey concluded that we will have a partial vendor night. Not enough people said they would attend to make having an outside vendor come in worth it…so…Mary Frawley will be bringing her project bags to sell and we are making the rest a giving/trading/selling night. If you want to bring yarn, etc to give, trade or sell…bring it! The more the better! Let’s start our holiday shopping! There is room to spread out and we can make sure each person who is shopping keeps their distance from the others. Reminder, masks are required. There is no Zoom option for this meeting.
October 1st, 2020_Patton Township Building_6:30 – 8:30PM

WE ARE BACK! Join us again in public (with masks and proper social distancing) in the large meeting room at Patton Township for an actual meeting! It’s been a very, very long time!!!
This month’s business requires election of both Vice President and Treasurer for the Guild. Kathy Horlacher has agreed to stay on as Treasurer (Yay) but we need a VP nomination. “The Vice President shall assist the President and serve in the absence of the President.” These are two year terms. Please think hard about serving the Guild. The vote will take place at this meeting.
There is no official program for this gathering–just (distantly) social knitting again at last! Bring your finished projects from the last few months and show off your stay-at-home productions.
May 7th, 2020_ZOOM Meeting will take place beginning at 6:30

March 5th, 2020_Nittany Mall Community Room_6:30 – 8:30 PM
[This month we are meeting at a new location, just this once, in the Community Room at the Nittany Mall. Approach from the back of the mall, look for the blue awning toward the far end. Go through that door and take the very first left inside. The room lacks the formality of the Patton Township Building, but the community is the same.]
The EXCITEMENT mounts!!! This is our last meeting before the LOVE of Fiber Event and time to finalize plans. Please bring any further donations for the Silent Auction. This is the last chance to renew membership for the year. (Note that only paid members qualify for a preview shopping and pizza night the evening before The LOVE of Fiber. Join us!)
February 6th, 2020_Patton Township Building_6:30 – 8:30PM

January 2nd, 2020_Patton Township Building_6:30 – 8:30PM
Yes, come even if bleary-eyed from the holidays! Time for new beginnings …and beginning to regret those resolutions.
It IS time to resolve to pay your annual dues of $15, due now.
This month Diane Senn will present the class she is planning for FLoF_2020–Picot Cast On and Picot Bind Off and Picot edging. This class results in a charming Picot Coaster featuring your new skills in Picot-age. The materials you will need are worsted weight yarn (cotton dishcloth yarn or kitchen cotton,) Size 7 or 8 or 9 needles, an open stitch marker and a way to count rows (could be a pencil and paper!) The project on will start with a knitted cast on which Diane can review if needed. You will begin and finish this project in short order and learn a new frill for the New Year!
