Cupcakes and Trippin'

If you've checked your email lately, you have the details that follow, but scroll down for the cupcakes. . .

Kim has been hard at work planning some trips for the Black Sheep Knitting Guild Members! I know you'll all be excited to be a part of them, so sign up now! Put some fun knitting adventures on your calendar! If you're not a member, all it takes is a minute and $35 to join and be able to enjoy member benefits, see Jennifer or Camille at the Coffee Beanery or at our next meeting at Anderson Middle School on March 20.

The Yarn Harlot
Stephanie Pearl-McPhee is coming to Ann Arbor on April 1. Don't miss this opportunity to hear one of the funniest knitting authors speak. We'll be leaving from the Anderson parking lot at 10:15 am, caravaning to Ann Arbor, eating lunch and then hitting at least one yarn shop on the way home. We should be home around dinner time. Your cost is NOTHING! You will need to bring money to purchase lunch and yarn if you're interested, and it would be kind to contribute a few dollars toward the driver's gas. If you're interested in attending, please RSVP to blacksheepnewsletter@hotmail.com so that we can get a handle on how many people are interested and how many drivers we need. If you're willing to be a driver, please include that in your RSVP.

Kniting Retreat!
We'll be heading to Traverse City on Friday afternoon April 27 and staying until Sunday afternoon April 29. We've reserved a beautiful home with plenty of space for all of us and have planned a relaxing and (somewhat) educational weekend. For a mere $150 you'll be able to eat, knit and relax among friends. $50 Deposits are needed by March 20 (our next meeting). You can write checks to: The Black Sheep Knitting Guild and hand them to Kim, Tanya or Jennifer at the Coffee Beanery or send them to BSKG c/o 2483 Tyler Ave., Berkley, MI 48072

Two workshops will be offered, one on mobieus cast on and knitting, the other on two handed fair isle. Supply lists will be given to registrants after March 20. We'll also have the opportunity to visit a fabulous yarn store in the area if you're interested. Five meals, workshops, snacks and lodging are included in your registration fee. . .and goodie bags for those attending are in the works! Sign up now and confirm your space!

And still more. . .
Kim has plans for a Lansing trip in early June including stops at Rae's Yarn Boutique and Threadbear as well as a trip to Skeins on Main in Rochester. Looking ahead to the fall, she's made contacts with Rose, of Indigo Rose and they are cooking up a special workshop just for us! The benefits of membership just keep growing!
Looking forward to seeing you at the Coffee Beanery or our next meeting. . .--Tanya and Louise
