Just a quick note to everyone about the retreat. There is only 1, possibly 2 spots left, unless we look into getting more rooms in another bldg!

So if you are thinking about going, now is the time to contact me and get your form in!

Also, don't forget to check the sidebar for names of people who have donated to our retreat so far!!

March madness continued...











On Saturday more than 20 members of BSKG made the trip to the Detroit Public Library to hear the Yarn Harlot ~ Stephanie Pearl-McPhee ~ speak. Our very own Kelley Kencil planned the event. Vendors were set up at 11 to sell their wares, including two of our own: Tanya with lots of her goodies, plus hand-dyed yarn by LindLu. Stephanie had us all laughing out loud! She is a funny lady and a great knitter!

March madness




It all started with our March guild meeting. As usual we had [lots of] wonderful raffle items... which I didn't get the list of. :-( Two lucky winners won free retreat trips, too. Joan Sheridan, owner of Heritage Spinning & Weaving, was our guest speaker. She taught us about Rigid Heddle Weaving showing us how to do it and some results.
