A Very Frigid January BSKG Meeting

January 2015 -  The flock came out in droves on a very bitter cold evening for a very busy, entertaining and informative meeting.  Our flock is the best, ever! 

The Cast Off of the former president, Harriet Atlas, and Cast On of the new president, Donna Mrozek, started off the night.  
Joan Sheridon, chair for Knit Michigan and owner of Heritage Spinning and Weaving gave an informative talk about Knit Michigan. The charity provides support to Michigan cancer patients and their families.

Tanya Thomann, one of the founding members of our guild, gave a  fun packed quiz utilizing our I-phones.  The Q&A's were about the history of the guild.

Both speakers did a fabulous job.

Charity head, Judith Davis, reported that 138 newborn and a few preemie hats were delivered to Providence Hospital and greatly appreciated.  Thank you everyone.
To all the sheep who made the cure little hats,
thank you!
Sneaky Sheep Swap, S3.7, a secret gift exchange, is up and running. The theme is Winter Woolies.  Let the fun begin. Check your email for the link to Elfster and sign up!

The retreat committee will be forming to plot the fun and games for 2015 BSKG Retreat. The retreat will be held at The Ralph A. MacMullan Conference Center, May 15 - 17. 
Not to mention fabulous door prizes,
did we say fabulous door prizes
(door prizes from a previous retreat)
The raffle was put together by Chris Hamel:  The prizes were donated by  Mary Moylan.  And the winners were Charli Osborne, Noreen Slank, Ann Tomlinson, Karen Zwicker, Sue Wade, Karen Sanders, Michele Dagenais and Audrey Helou.

Our next meeting will be held on February 10th.  Our speaker, Pat Kreiling, will speak about judging knitting at the State Fair.

Hope to see you all on February 10th.
