BLKG Picnic

I got an email from Events Chair, Kathy Potter with all the details about the Picnic so I'm passing it all on to you.

"The BLKG picnic will be held on Thursday, June 11th from 5:30 PM to 8:30-ish.  We will gather at Echota Gardens -- rain or shine.  (Click the link to their website, click "About Us" where you'll find a map to their location.)

Everyone should bring either a salad, a bread, or a dessert to share.  Bring your own beverage (spirits are allowed), a chair (if you can, there will be seating in the lodge), your imagination for a gardening project, and a smile.  The Guild will provide plates, plastic silverware, and napkins.

Chris, the owner, is a Leinenkugel beer fan.  If anyone has a beer holder mitt they'd be willing to donate that we could leave with him, I think he would love it.  Let Kathy know if you have you can contribute.

If there is anyone who has not signed up yet, send an email to kpotter(at)gmail(dot)com." 

The July 9th meeting will be held at Paintin' Pottery & Bead It, 520 George St. in DePere from 5 PM to 8 PM.  We will be making the yarn bowls that we signed up for at the last meeting.  The cost is $25 per person ($36 for those who wanted the large bowl) which includes everything needed to make a bowl.  Click the link to their website for directions and click Gallery for glazing ideas.  There is a coffee shop there as well, with some good decaf brews, so even if you're not making a bowl bring your knitting and come knit while we glaze.  Email Kathy (address above) with any questions.

Kathy emailed those of us that signed up at the meeting that it'd be a good idea to stop in to pay for our bowl and maybe pick out glazes or paints to save time that night.  I think that's a terrific idea.  We don't want a traffic jam at the cash register to interfere with our creativity now, do we?
