This will be the last blog post before our October meeting, our highly anticipated author talk, Writing About Knitting presented by Ann Hood. Included here are some final details on this evening.
One could say extreme circumstances called for extreme measures. We thank everyone who has followed our prompts and reserved their seats for the October meeting. Now, we will share what to expect.
Seats will be set theater style allowing for more room and comfort for all of us.
After a short introduction, Ann Hood will honor us with her presentation, ‘Writing About Knitting’.
If there was ever consensus on anything, the whole of the Guild’s membership agreed that while our new space is lovely with advantages of bright lights, windows, and updated technology, the arrangement we had of seats and tables for our September gathering was hot, uncomfortable, and undesirable. The leadership of the Guild also agrees. Therefore, here is how we are moving forward for our October Program.
Happiness abounds in the Greater Buffalo area when it comes to knitting! After all you’ve GOT to be happy about the news regarding The Knitting Guild’s new meeting location! (Or, at least be thrilled we HAVE a meeting place!) I guess that would be the new, NEW location! We cannot wait to experience the professional feel of our new space as well as learn a new route of travel getting acclimated to its proximity from our homes.
It was early June
We were celebrating the end of our season
Happy to be on vacation
to be without rhyme or reason
Our new website had just been published
Time to sit back
letting cyberspace catch up
where we were lax
“The Ramada is closing,
The Ramada is CLOSING,”
we were told on Ravelry.
Was it a rumor, was it true?
What about the programming,
Yarn Fest and Auction
It was all set,
Oh, what to do?
We went into a state
phone calls a-plenty
to set up some dates
Here and there
what would be best?
How could we match
what we had already arranged?
Well, roses are red
Violets are blue
And we, indeed
have some news for YOU
As we knit our cables
And block our lace . . .
We are here to inform,
Our new home
is the Hyatt Place!
We want this website to serve as a resource for you. Therefore, much thought has gone into making this site easily accessible. We not only want the navigation to be easy but we want you to be able to find what you are looking for quickly.
Therefore, every so often, we will be highlighting one of our many Pages to demonstrate its ease and convenience. This post will be highlighting the Social Media Page.
When our website went ‘public’, there was a LOT to notice. You likely browsed our site, noticed its organizational format, and taught yourself how to navigate with the tabs. You may have enjoyed looking at the featured images (photos at the top of each page) and tried to find yourself. Maybe, you enjoyed the TABS on reflection, the Pages we call Newsletters, Gallery, Reviews, and Who’s Who (which is currently a WIP). You likely went to Pages called Programs and Seminars to get a flavor of the direction the Guild was taking for this upcoming year. You may have utilized the Calendar Page and marked down our events in your own agenda.
Likely the greatest change you see to our website is a tab that says “blog”.
A blog is simply a place for a running commentary of the goings-on of that website.
a personal website or web page on which an individual records opinions, links to other sites, etc. on a regular basis.

Readers, knitters, community organizers, members, friends . . . we are delighted and excited to present our brand new website to you! We realize everyone’s lives become entangled with the busyness of family, employment, and challenges to the degree that it becomes difficult, sometimes impossible, keeping up with the recording of our own actions, thoughts, and ideas. We’ve somehow found time this last month to pause and reflect on The Knitting Guild of Greater Buffalo’s journey, in particular this last year. We realize the importance of capturing, in written form, where we’ve been so we can travel with greater purpose and focused direction in our future. And, we realize the importance of providing opportunity for many voices to speak on behalf of the good of the organization.
