Do to the bad weather and the small turn out (12 women) at the 10 am meeting we will not be having the 7 pm Dayton Knitting Guild meeting.
Check your local news station tomorrow before you come to the Dayton knitting guild meeting. If the Dayton schools are closed, we will not be having a meeting. The presenter, that was coming from Cinncinnati, will not be able to come tomorrow. There is already freezing rain in Cinncinnati. We will still have a meeting if the Dayton schools are open.
Bring the knitting project you are working on. We’d love to see it. Are you planning on knitting any Holiday gifts this year?

BARB’S PERUVIAN CHULA HAT HAS BEEN MISSING SINCE THE SEPTEMBER MEETING. ITS RED AND GREY, HAS EAR FLAPS, IS OHIO STATE GREY AND HAS THE NAME KEIRA ON IT. KEIRA ALREADY CALLED BARB BEFORE GOING TO SCHOOL TO ASK FOR HER HAT BACK. If anyone knows of its whereabouts please call Barbara right away.
On Saturday, October 18th Lynn McCown will be teaching a class on cables from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at St. Mary’s Center. Please contact Christine Hall (see directory for contact info) if you are interested and she will send you the materials list. Lynn usually does these classes in her home in Yellow Springs. So basically it’s a Knit-in at St. Mary’s Center.
The Dayton Knitting Guild is having a T-Shirt contest. We want you to design a new image or picture that will go on the front or the back of the T-shirt. If we pick your new design for the T-shirt you will win admittance to the 20th Dayton Knitting Guild Retreat. Contact Heather Janney when you have your design completed. Her phone number is in the DKG directory. You must be a member of the Dayton Knitting Guild to enter the contest.
Don’t forget about the first DKG meeting of the fall season. It’s this Monday at
10 am and 7 pm at St. Mary’s Center. The program is called, “Is this a map or what?” The inside story of reading charts and patterns for knitters.
Don’t forget to bring something for show and tell.
Can’t wait to see everyone.
