The Library Page

Are you wondering what happened to our resources, that is our tangible resources?  In particular, those hard cover books that used to be in the cabinet that you could look at and borrow?  (You might even be wondering where are the cabinets?)  I believe it was called The Lending Library.    Well, this post is explaining our new procedures regarding the existing collection of hard cover books and how you may continue to take them out on loan.  Also, towards the end of the post, there are two other announcements that may be of interest to you.

After a short introduction, Ann Hood will honor us with her presentation, ‘Writing About Knitting’.

October with Ann Hood / Reservations Available

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.

Hear Ye, Hear Ye, AN ANNOUNCEMENT YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS!

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?

Panic, fear
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!

What does Chautauqua Institute and The Buffalo Knitting Guild have in common?

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.
