May Meeting

Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 2, 2018, at 7:00 pm, at St Theresa, the Little Flower Church, 15 Still River Road, Harvard, MA.

We have the pleasure of welcoming back Judith Durant. Judith is the editor of the many One Skein knitting books, and founding editor of “Interweave Knits” Magazine and a contributor to “Interweave Knits”, “Beadwork” and “Piecework” magazines. She is also the author of several knitting and beading books.

Judith’s presentation for the evening is “The Pleasure and Pain of Knitting for Broadway” in which she will share the story of how she was hired to provide 40+ men’s sweaters for a Broadway revival of Carousel, which opened on April 12. She recruited a small army of knitters, and somehow managed to make every deadline.  Judith has a slideshow of pictures taken of some of the fittings and also of the sweaters onstage. She is bringing along a few of the local knitters she worked with so they can share their experiences with us.

Membership dues are $25 a year. Guests may attend this meeting, but will be charged $10 to participate due to the speaker.
