Summertime! Summertime!

Summer Camp

First Session: Tuesday, June 14th at Our Shepherd Lutheran Church

Judith will introduce a special charity project you may have read about in the Free Press. A young man named Alex VanHaren (10 years old) started collecting yarn so his mother could make scarves for fellow students in the Oxford School system who needed the warmth. She could not knit it all because the donations were so overwhelming. We can help! Yarn will be provided. 

Camp will continue on the second Tuesday in July and August. 

World Wide Knit in Public Day

June 18th

Have You Any Wool is offering workshops, but even better, a chance to sit and knit at Patrick J's Irish Pub from 1:00 to 3:00. 

Or you could head to Leon and Lulu's in Clawson to knit. A $10 fee goes to benefit Mittens for Detroit.

Michigan Fiber Fest

August 20-21

Organizers of the annual Festival are asking Michigan guilds to help with the Fiber Fest Demonstrations. Since three of our members are some of the "worker bees" (Pat, Ernestine, and Shirley) it would be great if our other guild members could volunteer for two hour shifts between 10:00 am and 4:00 that Saturday or Sunday.

Bargain One
Bargain Two

May is a great month to be a part of the Black Sheep Knitting Guild!

During this May's guild meeting, members sold items from their stash...and bought others' stash. It was a win-win situation for everyone. Sometimes sales were already completed, or at least contemplated, before the meeting formally began. And, of course, there was a lot of window shopping, bargaining, and admiring purchases. 

May is also the annual retreat at the Higgins Lake MacMullan Conference Center. The 2016 Retreat was one of the best. We had great weather for walks in the woods; Donna met a tree branch before crossing an icy stream (barefoot) with Denise and Kathy. Sara and Kelly sat by the lake to knit in the sunshine. Erika brought her new marshmallow stick to Friday night's campfire. Two Mini Coopers caravanned on a hunting expedition for yarn on Saturday. The blue bags are proof of many purchases. Those who stayed back lined up for massages. Ernestine and Karen chose to spin as well as knit. 

2016 Swag

Thanks to Donna's husband for his annual contribution of chocolate. Yum. Thanks, too, to Tanya and Heritage for donating some extra knitting goodies. 

Next year's retreat dates are already set for the third weekend in May. 

We'll be back!
