September Meeting Notes

The September meeting was a great kick-off to the year. We had a full house in addition to about 20 guests! We are selling BSKG t-shirts again, you should have gotten an email if you didn't have a chance to sign up at the meeting. Lots of upcoming events - Spinners Flock, Shop Hops in both Lansing and Metro Detroit, Mt. Bruce, the list goes on. The White Scarf/Winter White Charity project is due in October. Keep those needles or hooks flying making scarves, hats and/or mittens for SOS. We displayed the 135 hats we got at Stitch N' Pitch for the homeless vets. We are still looking for more - so if you are willing to make a hat or two, please bring them to the October meeting. The Silent Auction was a great success. We had tons of gorgeous things to bid on, including 2 incredible shawls donated by members! The raffle prizes were great also - lots of books! We signed up for committees; retreat and a new long term planning. Next month's meeting will have a trunk show, nominations for VP and we will explore some techniques, including felted soap - so bring a bar of soap if you want to participate! See you then.
