October Meeting

Oct was once again a full house with several new members! Welcome to Janet W, Mary P, Elizabeth C and 2 guests Sally K & Patricia H. 






Brown bag swap: 


Bring to the November meeting a new knitting related item of a $20 minimum value in a plain brown bag…and be SURE to get assigned a number. 


Then the fun begins, we’ll start with a random number — that person picks a bag, OPENS and SHOWS what they got. The person who BROUGHT that item goes next.

At any point the new person up to open a bag has two options: pick a new bag to open, or ‘STEAL' something already opened.

Items may be ‘stolen’ two times (MAYBE three, it will depend on how many people participate). 

If your item is stolen, you are the next up…to either open a new bag or steal someone else’s item! You cannot steal back the item that was just stolen from you.

At the very end, the second person up then the first may have the opportunity to do a final steal…and swap their item for the one they steal.


Lots of goodies in the silent auction!


Our new location has great lighting!

Great times socializing with friends





Show and Share is always so fun! Remember to bring your finished items to share with the group.

♥ Kate filled in for Tracey. ♥





















Tanya brought in some of her new designs they are available as kits. 
BEAUTIFUL!





Charity items are still coming in! Great job everyone!

 

Until next time. Remember one dropped stitch is a mistake. Two dropped stitches is a design detail! 😘
