Volume 5, Issue 1, December 13, 2009

Our meeting was held December 13 at St. Christopher's Episcopal Church in Midwest City. President Brenda Asher called the meeting to order at 3:20 p.m. by welcoming the membership and asking, What are you working on?" There were socks, socks, more socks, blankets, baby hats, soap sacks, sachets, sweaters, and dishcloths.


Executive Reports

The secretary (me) neglected to bring the minutes from the November meeting; however, a brief recap was accepted in lieu of more formal minutes.

Linda P., Charity Knitting committe, was unable to attend, but Brenda reminded the membership to please bring their dressed bears to the January meeting. A representative from the sheriff's office will be attending to accept the bears for the department.


Old Business

a brief discussion was held regarding monthly programs for 2010. Ideas ranged from the 'stitch of the month, to techniques, such as magic loop, to the study of the characteristics of yarns. Worldwide Knit in Public Day and the regular swap meets were mentioned as well.

New Business

Our president, Brenda A. asked the members to seriously consider running for president or secretary, the two offices opening up in 2010. Elections will be held soon.


Our program for December was the ever popular Holiday party - lots of delicious goodies brought by members were shared while the gift exchange game 'Dirty Santa' was played.

Many thanks to our vice president, Emily S. for arranging for the use of the Parish Hall for our festivities!


The January meeting will be held on January 17, where our program will be 'Staying Focused' and there will be a stitch pattern demonstration. Please bring your ideas, your journals, and a buddy!

See you then!
