On September 8th, the Black Sheep Knitting Guild returned home from “camp meetings” to our regular monthly meetings. There was one visitor, Dorinda Balanecki.
Val Koyl has graciously taken over for Chris Hamel as chair for the raffle. Thanks to them both! Donors for the raffle were Mary Moylan and Stacey Totzke and the winner were Pat Kreilling, Noreen Slank, Karen Sanders, Mary Moylan, Ernestine Bains, Linda Francisco, Linda Dean, Rita Perrone and Linda Doros. Thank you Mary and Stacey for donating.
Although new swag will not be announced until the October meeting, some swag from previous years was available for sale: umbrellas, hats, BSKG bags. Sorry, sheepies, the cowbells are all gone.
An important point in business portion of the meeting was to look for volunteers for various committees. Please consider signing up to help the guild.
It was a pleasure to listen to our guest speaker, Aviva Sussner. She is about to open her own knit shop in Birmingham, Woolly&Co. after spending several years as an instructor in another knit store. A lively speaker, Aviva generated “oohs and ahhs” when she gifted us all with a tape measurer. We’re easy to please. After being peppered with questions from the group, she turned and asked us questions about what knitters want to find in a knit shop. If you have a suggestion, look at your measuring tape for her contact information.
One of our sheep, Katy Race Koelb, has moved to Florida and passed along some beautiful yarns, some will be used for crafts, some will show up in the raffle and some will be used for charity knitting. Thank you Katy, we will miss you.
