Maggie Covey died in her sleep last night. She had gone to visit her children who live out West. She was going to a Wedding and a Graduation Party. Maggie was a very good friend of mine. I had gone Bead hunting with her and Anna Conrad in Urbana right before she left for her trip to visit the family. She has a roommate named Vicki. Maggie was a great friend to many people in the Dayton Knitting Guild. She was Program director after Kay Wolff stepped down. Maggie worked at the Registration table Imageat the Bergamo Retreats. Maggie loved to knit and had other craft talents. She made the pins that Andrea Wong uses for her Portugese knitting. I remember how excited she was when she heard that Lucy Neatby and Galina will be at the Retreat next year. Maggie was one of the kindest people I ever met. I will miss her more than I can say.

Jackie Richie’s husband passed away last week also. Jackie is a great knitter and goes to our Knitting Retreats. You can find addresses in our Membership Directory. 

Monday May 19th will be our next Dayton Knitting Guild meeting. The Yarn Shop will be our vendor.

Susan B. Anderson was the instructor and she was fantastic. She helped us start 4 knitting projects. The first one was, “Egg to Turtle Reversible”. 20 of the 53 Retreat Participants had enough of it completed to get them into a photo. Susan has posted a picture of them on her Blog. (http://susanbanderson.blogspot.com/2014/04/dayton-knitting-guild-retreat-winner.html). The 2nd project was “Fair-Isle Hats”. Several women finished this project. I almost have mine done. I should have it finished by the end of this week. I will try and post it somewhere. I learned how to do a Latvian Braid. This was a totally new technique for me and I love it. Susan even gave me a private lesson on trapping the yarn on my Fair-isle hat. Susan was so kind and helpful to everyone throughout the Retreat. There were 3 extra Fair-Isle hat patterns besides the “Double-Braid Sampler Hat”. Susan is very generous. Her written instructions are very thorough also. The 3rd project was the “Sock Yarn Bunny”. We learned lots of new skills doing this project. The final project was “String-A-Long Toys”. You could make a Frog, Monkey, or Mouse. Valerie finished her Frog, so we hate her (LOL). Susan posted a picture of Valerie and her Frog on her Blog site.

If you haven’t gotten onto Susan’s Blog Site you are missing something very special. She has written a very nice piece about our 19th Dayton Knitting Guild Retreat.

Coming attractions for next years 20th Retreat are as follows:

Lucy Neatby and Galina Khmeleva will be the presenters.

Get those dues in before September so you can get in the running for a place at the 2015 Bergamo Retreat. I’m sure it will fill up fast.

Also we want you to design the LOGO to be put on the back of a T-shirt for the 20th Retreat.

The designs have to be in to Kay or Heather by the 31st of October 2014.

The winner will have the first spot at the 2015 Retreat and the entrance fee to the 2015 Retreat will be the Grand prize, so your place will be paid for.

P.S. Are you enjoying your Fans?
