The Retreat is soming up sooon!

Just a quick reminder to register for the annual BSKG Retreat...a weekend of fun with fiber friends April 29 - May 1.
Includes 2 nights, 5 meals, snacks and workshops and more fun than you can shake a skein at!

We will be holding a special raffle at the March meeting for the 2 paid retreat admissions.
If you have already signed up, and then win the raffle, we will of course refund your deposit.

McMullen Center is a lovely place, set on the wooded shores of Higgins Lake, which has been noted as one of the world's most beautiful lakes.

Last year we had classes at the beach, went kayaking, had a bonfire at the beach, went for walks in the woods.
We have chair massages scheduled for Saturday afternoon, also we will have our own henna artist.
There will be a sale Sat. evening, with some our talented members showcasing their wares.

We have arranged a tour of Stonehedge Fiber Mill Friday afternoon, before the "official" retreat starts.

It's a great weekend of fiber fun, great conversations, and just an all around good time! For new members, it is a great chance to get to know everyone.

the February meeting was a busy one...




Diane Dininsky brought along items she's made for a Trunk Show ~ always a treat for members.

Tanya Thomann gave us a lesson on Fair Isle knitting ~ she almost made it look easy. We all learned some tricks. And then she showed us steeking! Don't know if anyone's ready to try that yet.

The raffle items were generously provided by Charli Osborne, Diane Dininsky and Stacy Totzke. The lucky winners were Linda Francisco -sock yarn in a [cat] bag, peach feltable wool - Tanya Thomann, Donna Mrozek - Bag Style, Merritt Collins - Itty Bitty Toys, Ann Ryan - a squiggle scarf kit, and Wiley Rundell - One Skein Wonders. Michelle Dagenais won the KAL raffle.
