October’s meeting was a well attended fun meeting. We had five guests and two new members joining us.
Our charity person, Judith Davis, collected the hats for newborns that will be donated to Providence Hospital. The hat count to date is 114, that would be 22 cupcake, 10 Sirdar, 47 umbilical and 35 assorted cute newborn hats. It is an overwhelming number of little cute "as can be" hats. A big thank you to all who made this project an astounding success. If you have not turned in your newborn hats, it is not too late, Judith will be collecting them at the November meeting. Also, a note on Mittens for Vets, if you did not turn in your mitts or still have a kit, please turn them to Judith, thanks.
The slate for the November election was announced. Running for the office of Vice President will be Merritt Collins and Kathy Stasys. Kathy was an active participant on the Retreat Committee last spring and Merritt presented a very entertaining trunk show featuring free form knitting last year Either candidate will make a good choice for Vice President. Be sure to come to the November guild meeting, so you may cast your vote for the candidate of your choice.
Swag, must-have Black Sheep stuff, was announced and orders are being taken for t-shirts. They will be: short sleeve, colors Daisy, Iris, Pistachio and Safety Pink and long sleeve, colors Ash Grey, Garnet, Royal and Black. We should receive them at the November meeting.
Sue Waid presented a very lovely trunk show. Most enjoyable! Thank you, Sue.
