Despite the rain, the October meeting had 17 – 20 attendees including two new people. We accomplished quite a bit, too.
We have a Nomination Committee chaired by Jennifer Case. Kathy Knox and Jo Ellyn Wheeler make up the rest of the committee. Please send them your nominations for President, Vice President, and Sec-Treasurer. They will visit with the nominees and present a slate of candidates to the Guild in December. We will vote on new officers in Jnuary. When you email your choices to the committee, please include whether the length of the term in office should be one year or two years.
We also have a committee in charge of the Christmas party to be held during our December meeting. The Co-Chairs are Beth Kollars and Kathy Knox. Committee members are Ginny Queior, Dolly Dearner, and Anna Hester. They should have a list of things we need to do or to get, by the November meeting.
And speaking of Christmas, we will be drawing names for the gift exhange. If you would like to be included and haven’t signed up yet, come to the November meeting or let me know. The gifts must have something to do with knitting (no you don’t have to knit something) and we’ve capped the price at $10.
CHARITY KNITTING CONTEST
Anna Hester, who is in charge of our Charity Knitting, is starting a contest next month. You will have from the November meeting to the February meeting to make as many charity items as you can. She will keep track of what and how many items you make. There will be prizes for the top three people who turn in the most. There is a registration fee – two baby hats to be turned in at the next meeting. So get those needles clicking! If you have any questions, just send Anna a note by clicking on her name in the sidebar.
I’ve asked everyone to come prepared with ideas for next year’s programs. A list has been started and already has over FIFTEEN really great ideas. I’ll be sending out an email soon with them - looking for volunteers to give the programs. This is a great time for you to learn a new skill and teach it to us.
Margaret, owner of Gourmet Yarns, deserves a huge “THANK YOU” from the Guild. She presented us with a $50 check as a commission on the books she sold at the Yarn Harlot event. So the next time or two you’re in her store, be sure to thank her.

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 upstairs into the book area.
