October 2015 Meeting notesNovember 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.
