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.
I am looking for ways to recruit volunteers to work with third graders at a
historical park in Beavercreek this Fall. It’s a 13 day program where we
introduce about 30 kids per day to skills of early 1800 settlers. We make
butter, rag dolls, do finger knitting, sew a quilt square, dig a potato, and
The chaperoned students come to “help with these chores”. Each session
lasts 25 minutes and is repeated six time in the morning beginning at 9 a.m.
The program, sponsored by the Beavercreek Historical Society and Beavercreek
Parks, is called Living History. It’s part of the third grade curriculum
and is in it’s 23rd year. It’s held in the cabins and barn at Wartinger
Park on Kemp Road. This Fall it will run from the 16th of September through
the 10th of October.
I will meet with anyone interested in the program at my home or at the park
to demonstrate the activities. You can either help out for one day or many.

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.
