Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday, December 6, 2017, at 7:00 pm, at St Theresa, the Little Flower Church, 15 Still River Road, Harvard, MA.
Following tradition, we are having an optional Holiday Yankee Swap at 6:15 pm. If you would like to participate, please bring a wrapped knitting themed gift worth up to $20.
If you prefer not to attend the Yankee Swap, please arrive at 6:45 pm for a brief meeting before we get into the plarn project at 7:00 pm. Plarn is a yarn made of plastic grocery bags. Please bring plastic bags (the thin kind) and a pair of sharp scissors. 30-40 bags will make a good sized ball of plarn. Bags with writing on them come out speckled. If you have more than 30-40 bags, please consider sharing them with others at the meeting. There are bags available on Amazon as well (some with colors). Knitting AND crocheting patterns will be given out at the meeting plus full directions on making plarn. Some of the patterns are for a bird house and a bag. You will need size 8, 9 or 10 needles/hook to work with plarn. It is similar to worsted weight yarn. You can choose to start it at the Guild meeting or work at home on a project. Some of the patterns are a bird house, baskets, totes, etc. If you do not want to make plarn, please bring a knitting project.
Guests are welcome, but will be charged a $5 fee for the evening. Remember, membership dues is only $25 for the year.
Back by popular demand are the attendance raffles. The more meetings you attend, the more chances you have of winning!
