Knitting Charities - Linda
Tis' the season....for knitting for any of our charities. OKC Metro Knit Guild is involved in two different charity opportunities. Precious Pals provides stuffed animals with knitted outfits to the Sheriff's department for them to use with children who have suffered some kind of trauma. We are also involved with Baptist Hospital's Neonatal unit and making hats, booties, and burial buntings for them. If you have any questions about what you can do, see Linda.

OKC Metro Knit Guild Library - Bethany
We have a lot of wonderful knitting books available to members of the Guild. Bethany brings books each month that you can check out and work from. If there is anything in particular that you would like for her to bring, email her and she will be happy to bring it.

Holiday Party - Terri
Our holiday party is less than a month away. Here are some things we will be doing at it:
* Our presentation will be for each member (who wants to) to share a holiday tradition they enjoy.
* We will have a Dirty Santa gift exchange - keep it simple and inexpensive.
* Bring a covered dish - sign up on our yahoo group as to what you will be bringing
* If you have a pattern that you can share (remember copyright laws), bring enough for the whole group.

Nominations - Brenda or Anita
Nominations are now being taken for the President and Secretary position. If you would like to serve in either of these positions or you have someone in mind who would be great in either of these positions, please let Brenda or Anita know. We would like to have as many nominations as possible by our December meeting so you can be thinking about them before we vote in January or February.
