March Meeting

Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 6, 2019,  at 7:00 pm, at St Theresa, the Little Flower Church, 15 Still River Road, Harvard, MA.

We are pleased to have our own Edith Murphy teach us Portuguese knitting. Edith had been at Classic Elite Yarns, ending as the production manager when CEY closed. She also worked and taught at Hub Mills Store, designed, and did technical editing.  She is currently running her own business, Moss Brook Fiber Arts, which includes teaching knitting and crochet at the Chelmsford Center for the Arts, and running the Yarn and Soul yarn line.

Edith would like everyone to bring a swatch of approximately 30 stitches cast on and purled for 3 or so rows (garter in purl). You can use any weight yarn from dk to chunky along with the appropriate size needles. Also, please bring another set of needles and a ball of yarn for learning the Portuguese cast-on.

Edith will have a selection of her Yarn and Soul yarns that she will be selling at a 10% discount for the evening. 

We are proud to announce that two of our guild members won awards in the fashion show at the recent New England Textiles Network Spa Knit and Spin in Freeport, ME 2019! Brigitte Bovy came in second place for the gorgeous shrug she knitted and Susan Miles came in third place for the amazing sweater she was asked to knit. Congratulations to both!!

Membership dues is $25 a year. Guests may attend the meeting for a $10 charge. As always, please bring any charity knitting you have completed, and projects for “show and tell”.

Our group welcomes knitters of all skill levels, including beginners. Do you only crochet? We welcome you as well. For more information, click here to email us.
