  • Draft copies of our new by-laws will be available at our December meeting. We will discuss and take a vote to approve our new by-laws at this meeting. We would like to have them in place for 2013.
  • At the November meeting, we talked about the great loss to Judith McKenzie of her studio and all her equipment. We talked about a way to make a donation or help in some way. We will be discussing this at the December meeting and voting on a method to help. For more information see our post regarding the fire and donation efforts.


  • January 5th is our traditional Roc Day celebration. We will have a wonderful day of spinning and a pitch-in lunch. We will have no official program or show and tell on that day.
  • Erin Kramer will be collecting dues at the January 5th meeting for 2013. Please remember to pay your dues. It is helpful to Erin if she is able to collect as many as possible at the January meeting.
  • Our February 2nd meeting will include a demonstration on plying. Nancy Shedden, Penny Tschantz, and Erin Kramer will be leading this.
  • For our September 7th meeting we will have a new Challenge. This time get your needles out to knit Socks. We want to give everyone plenty of time to finish their socks. Use any pattern you want. This is not a contest, just a fun way of sharing a specific project. We have many good knitters in our group who would be glad to help if you have never knitted socks. This is a great time to learn and participate in a fun challenge.
