Coming up this October is the Guild’s fashion show. The date is Sunday, October 11, 2015 and it will be here before you know it. The show will be held at the Twin Towers Place from 3pm-5pm. The Twin Towers is the high rise apartments just behind St. Mary’s church where the guild meetings are. Parking is in the same lot as meetings.

We’re looking for entries of all the wonderful things everyone has been knitting. Monica MacFarland and I have entry forms and we’re working to add them to the guild website for download. We need one entry form per garment. All garments need to be to Monica by the last week in September or October 1st at the latest. Drop off points for garments are at Monica’s house (coordinate with her – she’s in the guild directory) or Fiberworks. Let Arlene know you’re dropping garments off for the fashion show and she’ll get them to Monica.

We’re still looking for models, all ages and sizes including young children. We have volunteers for setup and clean up and snacks. We can always use more – especially in the snack department. Contact Roggi McCord to volunteer. Please invite friends or family to come and watch – we need spectators! A fashion show is lacking without an audience to celebrate all the wonderful items created. We look forward to seeing you there!

If you were at Kay’s 20th Dayton Knitting Guild Retreat you may have won a Raffle Prize. The Raffle prizes are donated to our guild by friends like you and many of our vendors. Prizes are also donated by yarn companies that we contact. If you come to the Yarn Market on Friday or Saturday you can get in on the Raffle. The drawing for the Raffle is on Saturday evening. If you weren’t at the Retreat you would have gotten a call to let you know that you won. At our last Board meeting we talked about how great the Raffle was this year. Mary Owens and Kelly Gockel do a lot of work to make the Raffle happen. The companies that they contact are listed on our website. If you won a prize at this years Retreat, would you bring it to the Monday meeting? This way we can all see some of the great prizes the Raffle had to offer.

We are gearing up for a fantastic retreat this year. The Goodie Bags are full and ready for each of the 70 attendees. Lucy and Galina will be arriving on Thursday. Barb and I have to meet with the director of Bergamo Center to finalize the planning on Wednesday and then we should be ready to go. We will be having the Yarn Market in one of the Lounges at Bergamo this year. More room and more light.
The Vendors will be;
Fiber & Fusion Studio
Fiber Designs
Tippecanoe Weaver & Fibers Too.
(Have you had enough fiber today?)
Strings Attached Yarns
Noah’s Landing
New World Alpaca Textiles
The Rabbit Hutch
Skaska Designs (Galina’s booth)
and for the first time the Dayton Knitting Guild will have a booth. (T-shirts, shirts, knitting bags, fans, gadgets…..)

This Yarn Market is open to the public. There is Free Parking and it is close to The Greene, another popular place to shop. (They don’t sell yarn there, do they?)

So let 10 friends know about the Yarn Market. And tell them to bring their friends. Even friends that don’t knit know people that need fiber.
April 24th 2015, Friday, 3 PM till 7 PM (4 hours of shopping) and
April 25th 2015, Saturday, 10 AM till 6 PM (8 hours of shopping)

There will be one more surprise waiting for you at the Retreat. Kay Wolff said that she was going to retire after this year and wanted to go out with a bang and a blast. So let’s have a blast for Kay. She would have wanted it that way.

Yours Truly,
Heather Janney
