Join us for a summer knit-a-long! We picked this shawl. It only takes 400 yards of fingering yarn. So, go through your stash and find that gorgeous yarn you just had to buy, but had no idea what to do with. Enjoy the KAL at your leisure over the summer, and be sure to bring your finished (or WIP) shawl to our September meeting.

Our first meeting for next year will be Wednesday, September 7, 2016, at 7:00pm, to be held at The Fiber Loft, 9 Massachusetts Avenue, Harvard, Mass. The agenda for the evening includes a “twig” stitch class, as well as a tour of the shop, which will be open for purchases.

New this coming year, we are going to be holding an attendance raffle at the last meeting in May. The more meetings you attend thoughout the year, the better your chances are of winning!

Remember, membership dues are $25 a year. Guests may attend a workshop or meeting with a speaker for $10.
