A Sampling of Our Work:
September 10th, 2014 will be our first guild meeting of the 2014 - 2015 season. We have great speakers and topics this year, so get your needles and hooks ready!
Elizabeth O'Brien will be presenting "Starting a Sweater"
Many knitters are afraid to start a sweater. With the proper pattern, knitting a sweater can be lots of fun. We will discuss everything you need to know to get started. The following topics will be discussed:
What size pattern to use, what measurements you need and how to take them
Gauge and why it matters
After going over all of the above elements you will be given an easy pattern, which will get you started on your first sweater.
Please bring a measuring tape.
The guild meets on the second Wednesday of the month from September through May at the The St. Charles Episcopal Church 994 N. 5th Avenue, St. Charles. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. for socializing & refreshments and the meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. The meetings consist of guild business, a planned program, and an opportunity to gain inspiration and expertise through "Show and Share". Some of the program topics the guild has covered in the past are Nordic knitting, needle felting, Entrelac, hand spinning, edgings, double knit, casting on and off, charting motifs, Latvian mittens and more.
