Guild members enjoyed a full agenda at the April's BSKG meeting.
We welcomed several guests and potential members as well enjoyed two guest speakers.
The regular business included reminders about the May Retreat which promises to be as much fun as ever. The committee procured some fantastic yarns for door prizes. The MacMullen Center also promised great weather again. (Next committee meeting is May 3rd at Panera's.) Anyone interested in attending the Tiger game on June 5th should contact Harriet about tickets. Don't forget your charity knitting; Judith will bring more kits soon.
Participants in the Sneaky Sheep exchange received and presented beautiful "Spring Into Summer" themed items. These are only two of the creative Sneaky Sheep projects.
Our two guest speakers are friends and business partners. Tanya Thomann and Carla Kohoyda-Inglis explained the start to finish process in the creation of their gorgeous yarns. While it is often laborious and time consuming, it obviously a labor of love that produces Welcome Home. Among Carla's tips for working creatively were to collect ideas in a journal or note cards. Follow Pin Interest or snap pictures on your cell phone.

The next guild meeting is May 10th and it is also the annual member to member sale of yarn. Good time to do a little spring cleaning with your stash....and to put it into someone else's closet. Because we are having the swap in May, there will be no free table and no raffle.
Point of Clarification: There is no rule about the number of items one may exhibit in Show and Share.
