February Meeting

Tuesday, February 9
9:30 a.m.

Puyallup Library

We will finalize plans for the spring retreat, Tuesday-Thursday, April 20-22, at Dumas Bay Centre in Federal Way; Nita included pictures of the facilities in the February newsletter. Joyce will tell us about costs, meals, choices, and what's included. We can decide what else we will need. Bring your checkbook to reserve your place. Many thanks to Joyce for all of her hard work on this!

We also will decide the class topic and select our instructor(s). It is important to decide the topic now so the instructor(s) can prepare for the class. Possibilities include:
  • Mitered squares
  • Short rows
  • Gaia shawl
  • Entrelac
  • Stashbusting ideas
  • Quincy hat by Jared Flood
Past retreats have focused on the Baby Surprise Jacket and lace knitting.

Bring your WIPs and your FOs to show. We also can talk about classes members are taking at the upcoming Madrona Fiber Arts retreat.
