August 1st meeting

Beyond the Stitch, Vol. 1 No. 4 was posted tonight to all members! It’s absolutely amazing to me how full our calendars is/are/can be if we let them be with knitting opportunities!!!!! Amazing!

Hope to see everybody at Sycamore Hospital tomorrow evening — 5:00 pm in the Cafeteria for Row counter workshop, Nominating Committee, 7:00 pm in the upstairs conference room for our meeting: an interactive presentation by Karen Behr. Karen is a knitting instructor and teaches all levels of knitting. She will be sharing with us some cast on methods, techniques and tips. Did you know that there are hundreds of ways to cast on stitches for a knitting project? Karen will explain the best applications and have sample to show finished edges. Bring a set of knitting needles and some yarn to try some of the cast ons along with Karen. She suggests a US size 7-10 needle and a small ball of worsted weight yarn. 

Bring any questions or edges you have worked and want critiqued for how a different cast on could have helped. You will find Karen very kind, friendly and patient.
You can find Karen on Ravelry as KareBehr.

See you there!!!

A Note from Vice President, Lori Riemer

I just wanted to remind all of you about our upcoming meeting on Weds July 11th 7:00pm at Sycamore Hospital. If this will be your first meeting, we are looking forward to meeting you. When you arrive at Sycamore Hospital enter through the main entrance and look up to the balcony. You will see our banner.
The presentation this month is The Ohio Natural Fiber Network. I think their website home page states the mission very well.

The Ohio Natural Fiber Network is dedicated to supporting Ohio fiber producers and artists, and to developing awareness of the diversity and beauty of Ohio farm yarns and fleeces. Our fiber farmers raise alpacas, llamas, sheep, goats and angora rabbits for their beautiful fiber. Our fiber artists dye, hook, spin, knit, weave and felt the most beautiful fiber art you’ve ever seen. Knitters, check out our Ravelry group on-line. You can also follow us on Facebook. We’re hoping you make 2012 the year you decide to go on an Ohio Fiber Diet by supporting your local fiber producer or artist! We don’t think you’ll be disappointed. The Ohio Natural Fiber Network — Our Homegrown for Your Handmade

If you have some extra time on your hands and can meet with a group of busy row counter makers, please come to the cafeteria on the lower level at Sycamore Hospital, grab some dinner or just a cold drink and meet us in the dining room at 5:30pm.  If you don’t have any extra energy and still need to eat before the meeting, then please feel free to use the cafeteria as a place to recharge.  The Kettering Health Network has made that service available to us prior to our meeting.
