The Prez Sez: Notes from the Maryland Metro Knitters’ May meeting

Our May meeting was sparsely attended so instead of our scheduled program, we just talked about the state of our guild and shared knitting projects. Our attendance is down for meetings as well as for membership. We don’t want to disband but what about the future??? What can we do to grow? Any comments/suggestions welcome.

In attendance were: Dallas Bolen, Donna Jaffe, Mady Segal, Kathy Graziani, Christine Estacion, and Marilyn Riffkin

Show and Share:

Donna: cotton-silk pullover, cotton-silk cardigan and wool socks

Marilyn: purple and red alpaca sweater (just finishing the collar) and a completed sack purse/bag

Christine: a crochet top, cardigan in Miraso/Hacho yarn; pullover from Louisa Harding

Mady: retro scarf (dancing leaf pattern) in a silk hand-dyed yarn for a wonderful neighbor (Lilly’s other mommy!)

Kathy: wool/alpaca socks

Dallas: a red cotton sweater (in pieces then and still not put together!) and a pink baby hat

Next meeting: Wednesday, June 4, 2008 at the church at 7:30

Program: Lace! and a yarn swap (bring in yarn/patterns/knitting tools, etc. for sale or swap)


P.S. Tell your friends about the yarn swap; maybe we can capture a few new members??
