A New Knitting Season + Sales! Sales! Sales!

I hope you've all had a lovely summer. One more week until school begins, and that also means the start of a new season for the Around the Bay Knitting Guild. Our first meeting of the new session is Tuesday, September 4th at 7pm at the Marlatt Family Centre. New members are welcome! Visitors are welcome to attend one meeting free of charge ($5 fee if we have a guest speaker). We hope you'll join us.

The approaching autumn knitting season also means some great sales, so now is the time to stock up and build that stash! Here are the major knitting sales I'm aware of at the moment:

Needle Emporium - tent sale runs Monday, August 27- Wednesday, August 29 at the Ancaster Fairgrounds. For hours and more details please visit Julie's blog.

Mary Maxim's annual tent sale - this sale has deals for all crafters and ends September 4th at 75 Scott Street in Paris.

Autumn is also the time to sign up for classes at your favourite knitting shop. So be sure to check out your favourite store, or scroll through our list of fav shops in the list of links to the right.

See you in September!

Knitting in the Park - August 7th

Our next evening of knitting at the Dundas Driving Park will be held August 7th, starting at 6pm. It's a great night to attend as the Dundas Concert Band will also be performing one of their final free concerts in the park that night. So bring a chair and a project and enjoy a lovely night of knitting outside.

Also, join fellow yarn lovers for a night of knitting at the Dundas Public Library on August 15th.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!
