It's Time To Re-Up!

Believe it or not, it's been a whole year since the Bay Lakes Knitting Guild of Green Bay was born. That means that it's time for you to renew your membership--or join for the first time. We're fun, and we'll help you become a better knitter, or at least a braver one. We meet on the second Thursday of the month from September through May in the Ziemer Building of First United Methodist Church. The business meeting begins at 7 PM, although knitters are welcome to come earlier to knit, listen to the goings on of the Board meeting, or browse the library cart (more on that in a later post).

After the meeting is a program guaranteed to capture your interest. Some of this last year's programs were: 3 cast-ons, 3 bind-offs, and a physical therapist who taught some stretches to prevent repetitive motion injury. Now, aren't you sorry you weren't there?

Here's what's under consideration for the next year's programs: increase & decrease stitches, how & why to block your knitting, sewing up (a personal bugaboo), and beaded knitting techniques.

With all that interesting programming on the horizon why don't you think about joining us?

It's only $15 for the whole year. What a deal!
