March Meeting

A lively flock of sheep were in attendance for the March meeting and there was one guest. 
 


Charli Osborne, events coorinator, announced two up-coming events happening this month.  Black Swamp Fiber Fair in Bowling Green Ohio and the other Fiber Expo in Ann Arbor.  Car pooling will be available for both events.  Hope to see a whole large flock of black sheep at both. 
Sign up for the Retreat, May 15 – 17, 2015, is in full swing.  You can still sign up at the April meeting. A weekend with fellow sheep in the north woods at the MacMullan Conference Center, what could be more fun than that. 

Of course, Chris Hamel, as always, did a good job herding the raffle with a  help from Linda Francisco. 

Donors were Donna Mrozek and Charli Osborne. The winners were:  Rita Perrone, Audrey Helou, Kathy Rasmussen,  Merritt Collins, Sheila Elliott, Ernestine  Bains, Heather Perrone, Mary Curran and Harriet Atlas.
Erica Owens did a trunk show, lots of fun stuff. Hats and cowls and other wonderful things. 



Not to mention a special hat called Saint Padraig, a pattern available on ravelry designed by non-other than Tanya Thomann, one of the founding members of our guild.  A collaboration between Tanya, Erica with help from Kate Pultz.   BSKG members truly rocks. 



Donna Mrozek did a slide show presentation, Ravelry  - Focus on Pictures and Kate Pultz helped with how to up load pictures on your stash. Kate also helped people load pictures of stash onto Ravelry.  Fun program!
