Ok, we’ve now got a plan. After working very hard to sort out all of the stash from Maggie’s estate – it’s time for the YARN AND CRAFT SALE!

We have 2 dates scheduled.

The first date is Monday, September 1st – Labor Day from 9 AM to 4 PM.
This day is intended for the DKG members and friends – serious knitters ;->.

The second sale date is Wednesday September 3rd from 9AM to 4PM
This sale will be advertised to the public – all are welcome!

Location: 3918 Villanova Drive
Kettering, OH 45429

Arlene Rivard has graciously agreed to handle the cashier’s desk both days. Shelley S, Kim K, Monica M, Sherry, and others have agreed to help one or both days. We would love to get additional helpers if anyone is available – there’s a LOT of yarn and other craft items. Maggie had a prodigious collection of yarn – everything from lace weight to bulky weight yarn, wools, to wool blends, silks, cottons, synthetics, and novelty yarns. She also had a large number of embroidery and quilt items, a large collection of fabric, and a variety of books and magazines.

IMG_0191It’s time to put the annual New Harmony Retreat on your calendar. The dates are October 2-6, 2014 at the Barn Abbey, New Harmony, Indiana.

Years ago Gloria Johnson and Patsy McCoy started putting on this Knitting Retreat. Now we are opening it up to members of the Dayton Knitting Guild. The Barn Abbey has private rooms with bunk beds. There are public restrooms and showers on both floors. There is a full kitchen with 2 stoves and 1 large refrigerator. The setting is quaint and beautiful. The Abbey sits next to the Wabash River. There is a nice hiking trail that takes you to the River. This is a very informal retreat. Bring your knitting a come relax for a wonderful weekend.

The cost is $175 for the weekend. If you give us a $50 deposit by September 2nd we will hold a spot for you. Space is limited. If you would like to share a room (that means someone will get an upper bunk). This is done on a first-come first-serve basis. If you want a top bunk you will be almost guaranteed a spot.

Katherine Misegades will be teaching us how to knit socks on two needles with NO seams. Jackie Ritchie will teach how to do entrelac knitting. This is a simple technique that looks amazingly difficult. It will wow all your non-knitting friends.

Food for breakfast and lunch will be supplied. Please bring some snacks to share. You are on your own for dinner. There are several restaurants within walking distance.

As we have for the past several years, on Friday morning we will be heading to Vincennes to Atkinson Farms Yarn Shop for shopping and lunch.

Make check payable to: Jackie Ritchie her address is in the Dayton Knitting Guild directory.
