April Knitting

Enthusiasm marked the April guild meeting. Members showed off their latest projects.

And members continued to knit hats and comfort dolls for charity. Sue's purple hats will make for some happy babies and parents.

We reviewed the April retreat (which was fantastic) and made plans for the 2012 retreat. The retreat will be Monday, April 2, through Wednesday,  April 4, 2012, at Dumas Bay. We need to make a $1,000 deposit to hold the dates. If you plan to go, please give $100 to Sue L., our new treasurer. You also can arrange with Sue for a payment plan if that works better for you. The total cost of the retreat will be approximately $175.

If you have an idea for a demonstration or class for the retreat, contact Jeanne or Sue V.

Whole Lotta Learning Goin' On

Two-at-a-time, log cabin squares, personal help — a whole lotta learning and laughing went on at the April retreat.

And a whole lotta hats and dolls for charity.

Special thanks to those who donated to the door prizes and gift bags: Yellow House Yarns, Shibori Dragon Knits, Lamb's Ear Farm, Unraveled, The Yarn Stash, and Pacific Fabrics. Please support our local yarn stores, especially those who support our guild. Links are on the right. Many thanks also to Lisa Brinkley for her donations.

Last, not least, extra special thanks to Jeanne and Judy, who organized the retreat; to teachers Jeannie and Naomi; and to everyone who contributed so much to a successful event. Thanks also go to the staff at Dumas Bay Center for their hospitality.
