NOVEMBER MEETING

Well, we had a great time this past Tuesday.  We had 57 members in attendance (which included 7 new members) and 5 guests!  We now have a grand total of 96 members in the BSKG.  Amazing!

We had lots of fun with the Brown Bag Gift Exchange.  Many sheep participated and enjoyed themselves.

 We also enjoyed some luscious cake and relaxed and talked and looked at each other's projects, etc.



 
 






 And just look at the charity project toys that were turned in to Judith.  I just love them.  You guys are the greatest when it comes to charity.  And so creative!


Judith spoke about another charity project, a kind of pay it forward project.   Make a hat.  Give a hat to someone who needs one.  Don't even need to tell anyone about doing this.  Just do it.  Anyone who didn't pick up a kit to do this and would like one, let us know.

We had our election for the new vice president.  The results of the vote will be announced at the December meeting and the new vp will take office at the January meeting.


We circulated a sign-up sheet for the retreat committee.  Several signed up, but we can always use more sheep.  Please think about this and make a decision to participate and contribute a bit of your time to the Guild.  Seriously, the retreat committee is a lot of fun.

Also, if you would like to become more active in the Guild, you can sign up to help out at KnitMichigan the first Saturday of February.  Feel free to ask any questions about this or the retreat committee.  We'd be glad to talk to you.


Our next meeting will be December 10th.  Tracey Kane will be presenting a trunk show and we will have a program on Techniques - Edgings.   We, hopefully, will have our swag/umbrellas by this meeting.  We will let you know for sure, so you can bring your $15 (per umbrella).

Remember, you can always join other knitters at the Panera's on Coolidge and 15 on the Tuesdays we don't have a meeting.  We're there from 5:30'ish to after 9.  Come on over and eat, knit and shmooz.

Nice guild, what a beneficial hobby at all, spending some of their spare time to knit some great stuff to share for needy ones, well I am so happy to know that a guild like this still exist, a guild where every member knows that its not about how it cost and being made, its about how it helps and make others happy which is indeed a big thing already.
