Voume I Issue VI, June Newsletter

President’s Corner:

The June meeting had around 25 people attend, a pretty good turnout considering it was Father’s Day.

And I apologize for the newsletter being so late this month and a bit short. Getting ready for Stephanie Pearl-McPhee AKA the Yarn Harlot coming this month has caused everything else to take a back seat.

And I hope you bought your book in advance to support Gourmet Yarns. This is such a big event and we want to be able to bring other great authors and speakers in, so we need to make sure we support our co-sponsors!

We will still be meeting on Sunday, July 16th, and will be getting an update from the committees on the Harlot event. It is so exciting to have her coming to OKC!

In July, we will be enlighted about enterlac. I know some of us have already tried it but I know we will all learn something!

Last month we were so fortunate to have Jo Ellyn Wheeler tell us tips and techiques to help us knit more efficiently. She has sent me a list of these tips and I have put it in a file on the Guild’s Yahoo groups list. Just click on
this link and it will take you right to it

Where We Meet
We meet the 3rd Sunday of every month at the Belle Isle Library from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm in a downstairs conference room. We are allowed to bring food and drinks as long as we don’t take them into the book area.We are on a 6 month trial period to see if library patrons are interested in the Guild. There will be a sign up sheet at the reference desk and the library will be keeping a head count to see how many people actually show up. Please remember to call ahead or go sign up just to show there is interest – thanks!
