WOOLY WONDERS FIBER GUILD  Notes of meeting of 2/26/2011

Our February meeting was held at the home of Suzanne Karns.

A treasure’s report was given.

We welcomed a new member, Jesse Stitt.

Discussion was held related to the wide range of topics available on line and the need to purchase HDMI cables and possibly a converter to enable on- line viewing on Suzanne’s TV. Members approved the purchase of these items (up to $100). Julie and Suzanne will coordinate this purchase.

Members who attended the Pgh Knit and Crochet Festival summarized that experience. Information describing Annadale Alpaca’s summer classes and workshops was circulated.

Knitters Fantasy will be held April 9 in Youngstown.

June 11, 1011 is the date for “World Knit in Public” day.

Ginnie offered to provide a demonstration of her sock knitting board as well as provide refreshments for our March 26th meeting, which will also be held at Suzanne’s home.

Many finished and in-progress items were included in “Show and Tell”.

We then viewed a series of topics that Kathy had selected from her “Knitting Daily” DVD’s including 3 ways to create buttonholes, methods to correct common knitting mistakes and the general approach to Entrelac knitting, including “knitting backward” to eliminate turning your project and purling on the reverse side.
