I just can’t get enough of it. I just got back from a Knitting Retreat in New Harmony, Indiana. There were 14 of us. I got so inspired by all of these women at the Retreat. I called in sick this week and have found knitting to be very comforting. I just finished a Knitted Necklace. (It even looks good on the wall). Barb Richardson gave me the wooden shawl pin. That really helped add the finishing touch. (I will be wearing it tomorrow at the Fashion Show). I won the yarn while playing Knit-O in New Harmony. It’s a fun game like Bingo. The yarn was so colorful, a simple knit pattern was all that was required. I won 2 prizes. Carol Desrochers donated a linen kitchen towel with sheep embroidered on it. She made it. Katherine Misegades brought her sister and a friend to this years retreat. Katherine was wearing a stunning jacket when we went out to dinner. (She may have a picture on her Blog). 9 of us went out to a fancy restaurant called, The Red Geranium.

Well the point of this Blog is to get my message out that tomorrow is our 3rd DKG Fashion Show and I will be there. I know you will be inspired. I’ve had a sneak-peak. There is one real show stopper created by the former Anna Conrad. The show starts at 3 PM sharp and will have one intermission. It will be over at 5 PM. I will be bringing a snack. My neighbor gave me the recipe. She said it was a big hit with her friends at work. You can stay after and we can eat, drink and talk knitting.

See you tomorrow,

Don’t forget that the Show is at the Corpus Christi Church. There is plenty of parking. Remember this event is Free!

This is a reminder that The DKG Fashion Show will be held this Sunday, October 11th from 3-5pm.

Due to a problem at Twin Towers we have had to change the venue for the fashion show. It will be at the Corpus Christi Church. The church is at the corner of Homewood and Forest Ave. It is two blocks north of Grandview Hospital and about 5 blocks from the Art Institute or  3 blocks north of the Frank Lloyd Wright bldg . Address is: 527 Forest Ave, Dayton, OH 45405.     This is a free event.

Also remember to send in your application for the first joint Fiber Retreat at Bergamo. The Dayton Knitting Guild and the Miami Valley Knitting Guild are teaming up for this event. You have until October 20th to send in your application.

Hi fellow knitters: Just a note to let you know that Darlene Grabits will be making a presentation to the Dayton Knitting Guild on Monday, September 21, 2115, both at the 10AM and 7PM guild meetings.

The subject of the presentation is top down knitting. Darlene has been knitting sweaters top down for about 5-7 years and has knitted many, many sweaters in this manner. She will have samples of her top down sweaters at the guild meetings.

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!

Roggi McCord
