Beth opened the meeting with a request for a guild member who would volunteer to do a short presentation to a Christian Women's group on a Tues at 11:30am. She would talk about the Guild, it's mission, projects, events, etc, and possibly show some of our knitted items. There would be no payment, but lunch is included. Beth thinks it is at the Washington Inn in Roslyn. If interested, contact Beth for information.



Jan 8th -Pot Luck Dinner A sign-up sheet was available for members to list their contributions. As we know, we cook as well as we knit!!

Bus to Webs: Gloria has contacted a bus company re cost. Meryle gave a presentation on Webs Yarn Outlet and Bead Outlet in Northampton MA. The ride is 3hrs each way, and 6 hrs at the stores. With 55 people (members & nonmembers) the cost would be approx $25.00 per person. The date: 12/27, the Sat after Christmas. A sheet was passed around to determine the interest in such a trip and a notice was put up in Ravelry. Please leave a comment here if you are interested.

Library Books: Meryle requested that books be returned after 1 month of use, as there are members waiting for specific books.

BLOG & RAVELRY: Our Blog is online for all to visit: If there are any members who choose NOT to have their photos posted on the Blog (ie internet), please advise Meryle, Anjanette or Angela M. Also a reminder of the Ravelry site where we have a forum with updates and information: If you are not familiar with Ravelry, you must request to become a member (it's free). Just go to the site, and leave the information requested. There is about a 5-6 day waiting period.

Membership: Dues for 2009 is payable thru 12/31/08 for $20.00. Beginning 1/2/09 the dues will be $25.00. We are trying to be a little “greener” and save a few trees so please note on the membership form to check the box if you want to get a hard copy in the mail rather than the Knit Knotes via email.

Refreshments: Please sign up to bring, snacks or beverages for future meetings.
