November Guild Meeting – Custom Fitting

Lori Utley will share the custom fitting insights and techniques she found in Amy Herzog’s book, Knit to Flatter. As Amy writes, “If a piece of clothing doesn’t work for you? It’s the clothing’s fault, not your body’s.” Join us on Wednesday November 8, from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at Millcreek Library to hear all the ins and outs. Don’t forget to bring your show and tell, and items for the Swap and Drop Table!

September Guild Meeting: Stash!

The Elephant in the Room…..

…..Or the Whale in the Closet

Sssssss……

Sssttttt….

Sttttaaa…….

This year we would like to have guilt free knitting, AND we want the pleasure of buying new yarn.  So we are going to grab the bull by the horns and start off by talking about  STASH –

Bring (from your stash) one skein each of the Good, the Bad and the Ugly:

  1. A yarn you have no idea why you bought – you hate it
  2. A yarn you love but haven’t used yet
  3. A yarn you like but don’t know what to do with

We will come up with some common trends and some ideas about how to make the stash go away usefully.

Wednesday, September 13th, 6:30-8:30pm, Millcreek Library
