New knitting links

Hello all,

I hope you're all coping with the never-ending snow. To distract you from your shoveling and shivering, we've added a couple of new links under our "Sites we like to visit" section (on the right side of this page, scroll down).

We've added a link for the Knitting Museum, which is a compilation of links to museums with knitting collections. We've also added The Textile Museum of Canada, which is in downtown Toronto and a fun place to visit.

So there you have it - two new sites to explore instead of being outside in the snow.

See you on April Fool's Day!

March meeting, no lion!


Our March meeting is scheduled at the Marlatt Funeral Home family centre from  7-9pm.
Be sure to check your email for any last minute updates .
              
Agenda: 
  1. Beading in-service with Louise continues
  2. general Guild show and tell
  3. sock group catch up
  4. Details on the Elora/Wellington Fibres May  23/24

For rest and relaxation in Elora…..and, or……a day learning different dye techniques at Wellington Fibres Farm, from which you take home 3 skeins (50g each) of Donna's yarn from her flock that you have dyed……..

There are one or two spots remaining for the workshop.

Here is the key Drew House B&B info (www.drewhouse.com)

We are welcome to lounge the entire weekend on site, including the gardens; early arrival is ok - may need to relax in gardens if the room is not yet ready. Bring one's own wine, spirits. (A few of us intend to lounge, knit, read, enjoy the bakery, walk the town to gawk at architecture and gardens... hmmm, that's me.)

The property has the Main House with 6 bedrooms; these rooms are already booked by Guild members. The remaining rooms are in the Coach House; there are 6 rooms - each room can sleep two people; more like hotel rooms, each with private bath.
