Tuesday was the final meeting of the 2008-2009 season for the guild.
It was fun and a busy meeting! Official BSKG folding chairs were delivered--you will see these bright green chairs this summer in a park near you...and there will be knitting! Plans for a WWKIP June Road Rally and a July PicKnit were revealed...watch this blog and Ravelry for details. August will be the Detroit Tigers Stitch 'n Pitch. Again, when we have more info we will post it.
The meeting began with a dinner catered by Panera Bread (the Southfield location--Matt did a wonderful job for us). Tables were cleared to let the Stash Swap begin...and there was some serious swapping! Tanya actually had a lovely display (which itself ended up being swapped!), Linda Lu had a wonderful spread of tempting yarn on a whole table, Rhys offered yarn from our favorite indie dyer and a spinning wheel. The silent auction was full of great items...and a little cut-throat in the last few minutes of bidding...although I think everyone went home with something that made them happy.
Thanks to all who helped with the planning details, set up and clean up...it was a big chore and greatly appreciated.
