November/December 2015 Meeting notes

January 8, 2016
The Wooly Wonders Knitting Group/Guild held its monthly meeting Saturday, December 5, 2015 at the Neverending Book Store.  Several people were able to attend.

It was discussed that one, preferably two, more names be added to the group’s checking account as Kathie Z. is presently the only name on the account.  It is required to have at least two names for writing checks.  Bessie N. and Nora C. both stated that they would be willing to be placed on the account.  This action will be voted on at the next meeting so it can be added to the minutes and submitted to the bank as required.

The Christmas tree at the Barrow Theater was put up November 18th by Tina S., Nora C. and Kathie Z..  Quite a nice amount of items were placed on and under the tree.  On December 7th Nora C. and Kathie Z. took the items off the tree and Kathie Z. took said items to the Community Service office in Rocky Grove for distribution.  Nora and Kathie then used items that are part of the yarn bombing plus other items collected.  It really looked quite nice when finished and showed what the knitting group does.  Nora C. and Kathie Z. will take the tree down January 2nd and plan to store the tree at the Barrow for future use.

Kathie Z. has talked to Diane of Diane’s Linens and Yarns to see if she plans on doing the yarn bombing during May Mart and she is.  I will be speaking with Diane after the first of the year to coordinate the plans.  In the meantime Diane has requested that we talk to other people about participating as she would like to do as many trees as possible in the park.  I told her the knitting group plans to participate.

Bring ideas to the next meeting to be discussed.  I will also bring what we have for our project so we can lay it out and see what is needed and where we want to go from there.  Also a quick note for anyone who isn’t aware that Diane’s shop is now on Liberty Street near Leonardo’s Restaurant .  She also offers class for anyone who would be interested.

Bead row counters were made and anyone who wants to make one we will have supplies at the January meeting.

Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

See you in January.

October 2015 Meeting notes

November 10, 2015

Wooly Wonders Knitting Guild held their October meeting Saturday, October 31, 2015, at Neverending Book Store.  Seven members were in attendance.

Discussion was held about how to continue the guild and it was decided to name it “Wooly Wonders Knitting Group” until we can reorganize.  Talk was to continue meeting once a month (last Saturday of the month unless otherwise notified).  Dues were changed from $20.00 a year to $5.00 a year until further notice.  The Guild/Group will continue to sponsor the Crawford County Fair and Venango County 4-H Fair as we have done in the past.  Crawford County received $25.00 for best in show prize and Venango County 4-H Fair received $30.00 for awards of $10.00 for best in crocheting, best in knitting and best in show.  The Guild/Group also wants to continue doing a Community Service project yearly.

Thank you from Venango County Fair was read.  Crawford County also expressed their appreciation.

Bessie N. stated that the Historical Society is looking into have a knitting/crochet/and other fiber crafts get together on Tuesday mornings at the Koos house.  Just people getting together, doing projects and helping each other.  Bessie will inform us as to the progress of this.

The Yarn Bombing was discussed and was voted to continue on with the project.  Kathie Z. will check with Diane of “Diane’s Linens and Yarn” to see if she will be participating or doing a group project this year.  Plans are to do an individual yarn bombing if no one else is not participating.  Plans are to do it at May Mart in May but this needs to be okeyed by the Franklin Gardening Association and the City of Franklin.  To be discussed at the next meeting.

We will be doing the Christmas tree project at the Barrow Civic Theater with decorating taking place December 18, 2015 at 6:00 P.M.  Information has been sent to members in another post.

Our next meeting will be held December 5th at 10:00 at the Neverending Book Store.  This is a combined Nov./Dec. meeting due to the holidays.  We hope to see you there.
