A Sampling of Our Work:
Well, the big day is almost here! The day we have all been waiting, planning, designing and knitting for will be here very soon. The Fashion Show for the Design Contest will be our official program on May 8.
The evening will kick off with the Fashion Show starting at 7:00 pm. I hope there are a lot of entries. I warn you that if there aren’t, I could spend several hours talking about my Julius Caesar shawl, which is one of my entries. I don’t think you want that to happen, so please bring your designs!
If you are bringing an entry, please take the time to fill out the entry form at the bottom of the newsletter. Please do this BEFORE the night of the Fashion Show, and bring it with you.
There will be announcers who will read your entry form as you parade up and down the runway. Each entry will be assigned a number – and be put on a table for display.
During the break: All attendees can look close up at all the entries, and then vote. Each person will vote for one item for each category. During the second part of the meeting: While the normal guild business is being discussed, the votes will be tabulated. At the end of the meeting: The winners will be announced and prizes awarded.
Doesn’t that sound like fun? Since there is so much going on this May – we will NOT be having the normal May yarn sale and potluck.If you want to review the Design Contest rules, see the newsletter.
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.
