I hope you're all signed up to come to the BLKG Knit-Away Day on Saturday, November 1 from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM. Here's all the info you need from Events Chairperson Kathy Potter.
Cost: $7 per person (which you should have already paid Kathy at the meeting on October 9) but maybe you can still sign up by contacting Kathy at kpottergb(at)gmail(dot)com if you hurry, and then pay on the day, but I'm not making promises.
We'll meet in the Vineyard Room of Chateau DePere at 201 James St. in DePere, where there's plenty of parking. Coffee, water, and breakfast rolls will be provided.
We'll be making the Elf on the Shelf. The pattern and most supplies will be provided but YOU MUST BRING a set of 4 or 5 US6 double pointed needles and a yarn/tapestry needle. Kathy said that tweezers will be handy for stuffing the tiny arms so bring some if you have some, there will be tweezers for sharing if you don't.
Lunch will be potluck (salad, bread, dessert) brought by members. Kathy asked what we were bringing at the October 9th meeting. Do you remember what you said you'd bring? Contact her if you forgot or are a late sign-up.
At 3 PM we will have a gift exchange and draw for door prizes. Bring a thoughtful, useful, interesting but inexpensive knitting notion or accessory. Wrap it up, NO tag, for a "gift grab" and hope someone fights for it. (I'm not sure this is exactly how Kathy means to run the gift thing but this sounds like what she said she plans to do.)
It promises to be a fun day of knitting and talking and knitting and eating and knitting and talking and getting knitting-related presents. Y'all come!
**If you haven't done the River Walk in DePere, Chateau DePere is right next to it. Consider coming a bit early or staying a little later and enjoy the autumn sights.
