Thanks for all the years of knitting fun!
It is the mission of the Bay Lakes Knitting Guild to give knitters of all skill levels the opportunity to get to know other knitters, to learn new techniques, and to share their ideas, resources, and talents with the community.

The church requires us to wear masks so don't forget yours.
If you're unable to attend or not comfortable attending, Carol's email from Sunday has a Zoom link for you to join us virtually.
Looking forward to seeing everyone again!

Entering is easy. Just go to https://browncountyfair.com/, click on "For Exhibitors" in the upper right of the screen, and use the "Online Entry Portal" just below the graphic and printed welcome. Or you can scroll down to "Open & Senior Entry Form", print it off, and enter by mail. For $4 you can enter as many items as you like and you can purchase tickets to the Fair for less than the cost at the gate. Your ticket(s) will be in the envelope with your entry tags. (I highly recommend taking safety pins along when you take your entries, it makes attaching the tags to your items much easier.)
Remember that the Fair Judges who gave our May BLKG meeting program highly recommended blocking your items and making sure they're square and straight. (I'll be over here with a pan of wool wash, blocking mats, and pins. That shawl isn't straight.)
Come! Join the Fun! Enter the Fair! Win Ribbons! You know you want to.

For those who missed the BLKG meeting last Thursday (and a reminder for those who were in attendance) the program was a great presentation by two ladies who are experienced county fair judges. They described how to enter (https://browncountyfair.com) then click on ‘for Exhibitors’. They also gave great detail on what they look for as they are judging each item.
Having been a past entrant and ribbon winner I must say it is a fun experience and who can’t use more fun these days. Please think about entering a few (or lots) of items. The entry fee is nominal and you will even get money for winning entries!
In case you don’t have an item in your recent projects, please consider making something you can donate to charity after the fair. I’ve stocked the sunporch with patterns and yarns so you can choose a pattern and a yarn to go with it.
