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.


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.

September 3rd, 2020_Patton Township Building_6:30 – 8:30PM

We will meet again at Patton Township Building along with a zoom feature for those who need to be more isolated. We still need to work on programs–it’s time to be learning something! Ideas, Anyone, that would work with Zoom? This whole virus thing is getting in the way of progress!

Bring your pointy sticks and some knitting (and your social distancing etiquette)–We need your input!

August 6th, 2020_Patton Township Building_6:30 – 8:30PM

Members have been sent an email with details about voting for new officers. Please respond by Wednesday so the results can be announced at this meeting.

Bring your pointy sticks and some knitting (and your social distancing etiquette) and let’s discuss ideas for new programs as well as For the Love of Fiber_2021. We need your thoughts and enthusiasms!

July 2nd, 2020_Patton Township Building_6:30 – 8:30 PM

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

Join us for a Zoom meeting (https://psu.zoom.us/j/99610271514?pwd=cTJtdnVqTmpoWWVQaE5odVoycmhhQT09, Password: 051995)

This will cover general business as well as social knitting. There will be no established program during this meeting. Keep knitting, keep breathing, keep safe!


Stay home and knit up a storm. One day we will all gather together to enjoy knitting as a group. Until then stay safe, wash your hands and be a hermit.

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

February brings a visit from Dawn Shaffer of Lazy O Ranch for a presentation on sheep farming and yarn production as well as yarn sales. Bring your pointy sticks in order to knit while being entertained with wool-raising stories.

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!
