Vol 3 Issue 6 May 2008

A big thanks to everyone who was at our meeting yesterday. It was so beautiful outside that I know it was hard not to want to go "play" instead of coming to the meeting. However, I do appreciate everyone who was in attendance. We had approximately 21 people along with one visitor.
I hope that all of you will be able to attend our Second Annual National Knit Out Day. This year we are holding it at Books A Million. It is going to be so much fun. A big thanks to Anna and others for helping to organize this event.
Have a great month and keep on knitting, knitting, knitting!
Committee Reports

Knit Guild Library (Bethany)
One of the books available to check out from the our library is "Knitting Tams" by Mary Rowe. It's a great 'recipe' book for tams of all stripes and varieties..

Charity Knitting (Linda)
Last month, we collected 4 bears, 6 blankets, 1 hat/bootie set, 8 blanket/bunting sets, and 9 hats. Thanks to all who knitted items for our different charity projects.

Don't forget about the charity knitting contest - the deadline for the contest is next month so be sure to get your items turned in!


Educational & Social Events
* Presentation Handouts: Jo Ellyn has graciously volunteered to help presenters with their presentation handout. Jo Ellyn can add our guild logo to your handout and help to get it ready for you. Let her know what you need!
* Presentation Assistants: We are looking for a 'few good knitters' to help circulate the room during specific presentations (i.e. learning a new stitch). This would allow the presenter to focus on their presentation and the knitters would get assistance when needed. Let us know if you are willing to help out!

Second Annual National Knit Out Day
Make plans to attend our Second National Knit Out Day on Saturday, June 14th. We will be celebrating, at Books A Million at 2300 West Memorial Rd. We will begin at 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
