September Guild Meeting

knitting_yarn_needles_lineartJoin old and new knitters for the first meeting of the year!

We’ll be discussing charity knitting as a creative outlet, a way to use partial skeins of yarn on small projects, and a means to building a stronger community. Surely one of the groups we highlight will touch your heart.

Location: Murray Library, 166 East 5300 South Murray, UT 84107
Date: Wednesday, Sept 14th, from 6:30 – 8:30pm

If you knit for charity, we’d love to see a project for show and tell. Also, we’re welcoming new and beginning knitters this fall, and would like to see some of your early knitting successes.

Workshops by Patty Lyons – March 11-12, 2017

lyons-patty-headshot

Patty Lyons is a nationally recognized knitting teacher and technique expert who is known for teaching the “why” not just the “how” in her pursuit of training the “mindful knitter”. She specializes in sweater design and sharing her love of the much-maligned subjects of gauge and blocking.

After deciding to leave her previous life as a Broadway stage manager to follow her passion and work in the knitting world, Patty managed a New York yarn store. Patty now teaches nationally at guilds & knitting shows around the country such as Vogue Knitting LIVE, Knit and Crochet Show (the official show of TKGA and CGOA), and STITCHES.

Patty’s popular classes can also be found online and on DVDs with Interweave, Annie’s and Craftsy, and her “Improve Your Knitting Class” was named Craftsy’s most popular class of 2013!

Workshop pricing and location have not yet been finalized, but guild members will have a chance to register before the general public.
