May 2011

Terry thanked all those who showed up for the first meeting of the Knitters Gild of NSW upper Mountains Group . The meeting was a great success with many visitors from the North shore group attending. Donna is the Secretary and the next meeting will be on Saturday June 4th at 1.30 pm. All are welcome.

The annual Back-to-Back Challenge is on at the Turpentine Tree, Bells Line of Road, Kurrajong, on Sunday 5th June, starting at 8am. It is a wonderful day out with great food, kids entertainment and lots of woolly things to see and buy.

The workshop, Colour Theory for Knitters, that should have been held at the May meeting has been postponed until later in the year.

Kate explained that all new members have to pay a $10 joining fee. This is a one-off fee, then the annual fee is $30. The first two meeting that you attend are free then $2 per meeting afterwards. As a paid up member you are able to attend meetings at any number of the 22 branches of the Guild in NSW.

World Wide Knit in Public Day (WWKIP) will be held on Saturday 18th June at Customs House in the city. There will be many raffle and door prizes donated by yarn shops and sellers. Unfortunately this date clashes with our next meeting day.

Those attending the Liz Gemmell workshop in June need to bring yarn in five colours and either dark blue or black. Bring needles to suit the yarn that you have chosen. Please come at 9:30 for a 10am start.

The raffle was won by Pam.

Next month’s afternoon tea is being provided by Janette, Shirley and Rosie.
