a message from Greg

I sent Greg [Coffee Beanery] a copy of the BSKG newsletter
last night. This is what he wrote today:

To the best group of women I have ever had the privilege of knowing. I can’t thank you enough for your kind donation to the American Heart Association in Memory of my Beautiful Mom. She not only was my Mom, but my best friend and I miss her dearly. It has been the love, support and kindness of family and friends that remind me she may not be with me as I would want her to be, but she will live on in my memories and my heart!

A Request from Linda F

Looking for a way to recycle your books and magazines? Look no more. . .Linda sent this to me over the weekend and I thought I'd share.

'The Friends of the Oak Park Library are holding a Used Book Sale October 16 - 18. If any of you have knitting and/or other craft magazines that need recycling, I (Linda F) would be happy to take them off your hands. You can bring them to me at the Coffee Beanery or the October Guild meeting.

In April I donated 2 copies of Cast On magazine. They were priced at $1.50. They were purchased in the first 2 hours. People are really looking for craft magazines. :-) '

news from Sally

Sally received permission to offer knitters a discount to the Detroit Chamber Winds concerts. If you call 248 559-2095, in advance, and tell them you are a knitter, you can get a $5 discount on tickets.

September 19 is a flute recital by Philip Dikeman, a DSO player. Refreshments are at 8 pm, the concert begins at 8:30 pm. Please bring your knitting and enjoy the music.

September Meeting

Last night was the September meeting at our new location!

We covered the agenda for the year and were given a few teasers for the Spring Retreat (though not much... we're hoping to squeeze a few more details out in the next few months).

This weekend is Kniterpalooza, at Starr Jaycee Park around 2PM. We will have our banner out so you can find us. Bring a seat if you just want to sit and knit, though there will be many other things to do as well.

Our raffle prizes this month were Nicky Epstein's Knitting Beyond The Edge and Charlene Schurch's More Sensational Socks with DPNs and sock yarn courtesy of Barb B.; a Night Notes concert pass for two, donated by Sally; some beautiful hand made bags from Tanya; and Knit Picks Bare Sock Yarn with a pattern and KP Harmony Needles provided by Linda L. (not shown).

Next month our raffle prize will include some hand dyed yarn from one of our own guild members.

See more photos here! If you have a flickr account you can upload your own photos to the BSKGs flickr group.
