Excitement is in the Air; February Agenda included

SPRING SEMINAR

Of course, by now you have received and have read about our exciting Seminar weekend.  There is a Page called Spring Seminar on our website for easy access as well as a Page specifically on Seminar Registration for your perusal.  I have attached the Registration form in PDF on BOTH of these Pages of our website for your convenience.  And, [HERE] it is again.   “In PDF” means you can click on that link, the form pops up, and you can print up that form to send in with your payment.  It’s meant to be easy.  Make sure when you send in your payment, you make very clear what specific classes you are interested in.  Do not send in payment without this indication.  And, as our website indicates, an email confirming your class(es) will be sent to you.  If you do not receive a confirmation email, there is a glitch in your registration.  This full circle communication is very important keeping all parties in-the-know, so be looking for this after your payment and of course, write to us if you have any inquiries.

Continued November Thanks and December Agenda

The last blog post was a recount of the second part of our November Program.  You can revisit it [HERE].  We mustn’t forget the first half of our November meeting.  We would like to extend a rousing applause of appreciation to Sue, our teacher who is leading us out in this year’s Knit Along (KAL).

img_1111 Sue has organized her lessons in themes and brought to us the theme of Textures at the November meeting.  These squares include:  Moss Heart, Texture Tree, Moss Spot Square, and Box Square.  These are similar in that, when completed, the knitted fabric has a sort of bumpy feel to it.

November Meeting Agenda

We are writing today to ensure and remind readers that the November meeting is NEXT week, November 10.  Also, to whet your appetite for our meeting.  We share:

 KNITTING FOR MY COUNTRY

presented by Historian, Mary Ann Colopy

Knitting Historian Mary Ann Colopy returns to the Guild to discuss knitting during times of war.  You may remember her from last year and how we enjoyed her presentation so that we’ve asked her back.  Please see below a pattern from days of WW1.  This pattern and directions allow us to consider knitting over the years, how knitting has obviously changed but in some aspects, remained the same.   Wristlets aka fingerless gloves?  Old concept, new name?

The directions are right in the newspaper clipping.   “This one has the virtues of the original document being easy to read and having easily understood knitting directions.  I will be sharing links to patterns in my talk next week, as well,”  explains Mary Ann.

Agenda for September Program

The Knitting Guild of Greater Buffalo is off to a roaring start with its first meeting at the exciting Hyatt Place location!  We not only have a new home, we have an updated attitude regarding everything cyberspace!  Imagine a website that is filled with links to resources we will need throughout this Guild season!  Well, we have that!  We have open communication with our blog and you can find us on a variety of social media sites.  We have a system for weekly updates that will keep us informed with the present as well as the future.

We are now able to reflect and say, “WOW!  We had a BUSY summer!”  And then we realize with a team of hard workers who are willing and able, it makes it possible for these things to happen.
