Big Changes

I had a great time at last night's Christmas meeting.  There was a lot of laughing, a lot of eating, and dishcloths going every which way.  New President Kathy P kept us moving along and well-informed.  The game that Becky and Janette had for us to play convinced me that I need to spend more time watching Christmas movies.  Congrats to Anne T for winning!

The big changes decided on at last night's meeting are that we will be moving our meetings to Grace Lutheran Church, right across the park from our current meeting place, and our meetings will be on the third Thursday of the month rather than the second one.  The meeting room is much larger and will accommodate our rapidly growing membership, it's still free to use, and it has a kitchen.

Don't worry, I'll keep reminding you as the time draws near.  None of us are going to remember this with that Jolly Old Elf making his appearance TWO WEEKS FROM TONIGHT.  Sorry, I lost my head there for a minute.

As the date for the January meeting draws near I'll post detailed directions, parking info, and which door to enter.

Also in January membership dues of $20 are due.  Anyone who joined in September, October, or November need only pay $5 to be covered for 2016.  Once you get the new sticker on your membership card/nametag be sure to take it with you when you buy yarn or fabric, many stores extend a little extra discount to Guild members.  That alone could be worth twenty bucks a year, not to mention all of the things we learn from each other over the year.  The Bay Lakes Knitting Guild is worth every penny, and it'll help us to be able to pay someone to come and show us or teach us even more stuff.
