Knitters' Knews

  • Board terms for the Madison Knitters’ Guild are limited to three years; this year we are seeking four new members. Please consider a term on the Board or as a committee chair; the guild needs your talent and enthusiasm.

  • Happy New Year! With a new year comes new resolutions and perhaps new knitting resolutions. This year why not challenge yourself to try something new, or master a new technique? Do you remember how exciting it is to learn new tricks or techniques that expand your knitting skills?

  • Join us for our January meeting in welcoming podcasters, Deborah and Melanie, the Savvy Girls—two sisters who take a playful and thoughtful look at knitting, travel and life. Luckily they’re from Canada, so our Wisconsin weather shouldn’t faze them.
  • Read the status of our projects: Second Harvest, River Food Pantry, January Donations, and the monthly project pattern!

  • Because of our concerns for the safety of all, and the unfortunate loss of Cheryl Oberle's sweater at a meeting last fall, we have instituted some changes regarding viewing speaker samples. We know that the opportunity to handle the speakers’ knitted objects is one of the big benefits of membership in the guild.

  • There are many new things to look for this year in the library. Keep your eyes open for more Interweave Knits magazine collections 2005-2010.

  • The first three mini classes to be open for registration filled very quickly, and we know some were disappointed not to find a seat. Three more classes are scheduled for April and May.

Meetings: Doors open 5 pm, KnitAid 5 pm, Meeting 6:30 - 8:30 pm
