Let’s All Go to the Fair

Joyce Lewis
The Yarn Shop

Joyce has been judging knitting at the Ohio State Fair for a number of years now. She will share with us how to enter items and what criteria they look for when judging knitted items. We have some fabulous knitters in the Guild. Let’s try to get more member representation in the local fairs!

Joyce will also be the vendor on Monday

Barbara Richardson (Pres) is asking anyone that has a Door Prize or Raffle Prize to bring it to the meeting on Monday. We will get them to Mary and Kelly before Retreat.


Barbara Richardson, Wanda Royer and Kay Wolff have been the officers of The Dayton Knitting Guild for 25 years. They have done a stellar job at keeping the Guild alive. We are all so grateful for their dedication and service. Now it is time for a big change. We will be electing new officers in May 2017. If you are a member of our guild you have been given a Membership Directory. We have chosen a nominating committee. They are Peri Switzer, Sandy Kulik and Shelley Stevens. Their phone numbers and email addresses are in the Membership Directory. You can call any one of them to nominate someone for any of these 4 positions: President, Vice President, Secretary or Treasurer. A brief description of the duties were in the DKG March Newsletter, Call of the Wool. The nominee must be a member of The Dayton Knitting Guild. We will tell you who has been chosen at the April meeting and then we will take a vote at the May meeting. Winners will be announced at the June meeting.
Thanks to all of the members of The Dayton Knitting Guild for helping make this change possible.
Yours truly,
Heather Janney

New World Alpaca and Fiberworks will be our vendors this month.

DKG Meeting will start at 10 am Monday the 20th of March. Arenda Holladay will be the teacher. You can read the previous posts for more information about our meeting and the mini workshop.

See you Monday.

Mini Workshop

We have a few spots left for the “Where and How of Picking Up Stitches” workshop with Arenda Holladay, March 20th from 1pm-3pm. Learn not just how to pick up stitches, but where to pick up stitches and determine how many to pick up. We will learn how to pick up from horizontal, vertical and curved edges. If you want to attend please call Christine Hall at 937-430-0691 and she will send you the homework assignment, which you have to do before the class.
