May meeting

A quiet meeting this month. Eighteen members took advantage of the chance to do an all day stranded colour work workshop with the fabulous Liz Gemmell. David brought Henry who won second prize in the 2008 Sydney Royal Easter Show. Merrin brought her entry from a previous Show, a first prize winner. Both were duly admired but the biggest accolades were for Liz's beautiful floor rug, knitted in 12ply on 4.00mm needles - absolutely gorgeous.

Members are reminded to ensure that their membership is up-to-date. A $10 re-joining fee will now be charged on top of yearly membership. Non-members are not eligible to vote at meetings nor are they covered by insurance should anything happen to them during a meeting.

A Basic Skills Workshop is to be held at the Epping Creative Centre on Saturday 21st June.

The "Back to Back" Challenge will be held this year at The Turpentine Tree on Sunday 1 June.

Spotlight Penrith will open in its new location on the June long weekend - keep your eyes open for sales.

The scarf exchange is to happen at the July meeting as is the one-skein challenge. Members and guests are invited to knit anything they want from only one skein of yarn of any size. Knitting will be displayed and the winner decided by popular vote.

The raffle this month, with a prize of a $25 voucher from The Wool Inn [Penrith] was won by Mira.

Finally, congratulations to Susan who announced her engagement recently.
