A new knitting season ahead!

Hello all.

I hope you had a great summer.  Our new knitting season is only 3 weeks away!  The first meeting of the 2011/12 season will be Tuesday, September 6th at 7pm.  New members are welcome!

This year we have a newly refurbished website. Our plan is to use this site to communicate information about our upcoming meetings, but also as a tool to share tips and deals with guild members.

There are a few big yarn and craft sales starting this week that are worth a visit.

1. The Spinrite Tent Sale runs from August 15-27 in Listowel.  They have amazing deals on Bernat, Patons and Lily yarns.  Details of the sale can be found on their website via the flyer link.  Also, this year they're having a knitting/movie night on August 20, which sounds like fun.  You can watch Eat, Pray, Love under the stars.

2. The Mary Maxim tent sale begins August 18 and runs until Labour Day.  This sale includes lots of yarn, but also many other crafting items.

3. Spun Fibre Arts is having a sale for the entire month of August.  This is a great local shop also worth visiting.

So go forth and build up your stash for the winter!  See you in September.
