Mid-Summer Gauge Check!

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!  In between holidays and relaxing under shady trees (while knitting of course), the ATBKG Executive has been busy planning for our upcoming season!  Watch for a Fall meeting schedule real soon on our webpage.

In the meantime, while you are counting stitches and rows, please consider the position of Membership Chair.  This role on the executive consists of orienting new members, assisting the Treasurer with dues collection at meetings, printing membership cards and name-tags, and maintaining current membership lists.  For further details please visit The ATBKG Terms of Reference.  What a great way to meet many, friendly knitters!  Not to mention...we need your help!  If interested or if you need more information, please email:
