BSKG Meeting

Where does a month go? It's just one week until the March 8 meeting. The doors open at 7pm for sign-in and raffle ticket sales.

As always, an interesting evening is planned. Christa Kent Newhouse will be our guest; she will be talking about *double knitting*. She will be showing her double knit pieces, and talking about Bi-Color Brioche, and teaching Brioche. She has patterns and instructions for a scarf and if you wish to start one bring 2 skeins of contrasting colors of the same weight yarns and appropriate size needles, either double pointed or circular.

We are holding a special raffle! Be sure to bring some extra cash. In addition to our regular raffle we are having a special raffle for an expense paid trip (actually 2)... to our annual retreat! Tickets are $5.00 each and even if you've already paid you are eligible to win and we will refund any money you have already paid. Anyone who has been on this trip knows how much fun it is, and this is a wonderful prize ($195.00 value) for two lucky people!!!!

There will be a sign up sheet for the stitch n Pitch committee. You can sign up to carpool to the Black Swamp Spinners Guild Market Day & Fiber Fair; this is held in Bowling Green, OH, on March 26.

Happy Birthday to all the March Sheep: Pat Baker, Kim Whelan, Suzanne Jones, Sue Waid, Judith Davis, Linda Dean, Kathleen Pawlik, Kim Thorsen, Ellen Rancilio and Laurie Goodman.
