April Meeting + We Need a Secretary!

Happy (almost) Spring!

Final Call: The Guild is still in need of a secretary; unless someone volunteers the Guild will cease.

March meeting: Why all the ply? What’s loft? How do we know what’s right for a pattern? Bring your questions and answers for an exploration of all things ply and loft.

February Meetings

This month’s program is on finishing techniques.

If you would like to bring some of your finished, or unfinished, items that have a finishing technique you would like to share during Show + Share, please do!

February is the final morning meeting we will hold.

From March forward we will only have an evening meeting from 6-8pm, with a social time from 4-5:45pm.

This is the new Board’s first month in office, please welcome them!

Thank you for your patience during the transition.

January 2019 Election Results

Thanks to all that voted in our annual Wichita Knitters’ Guild Board elections.

Our new board as elected:

President – Lynlee Weber
Vice-President – Candice Patton
Secretary – Connie Gordon
Treasurer – Belinda Kidd

We also voted on canceling the monthly morning meeting.
It was a close vote, but it was a vote to cancel the morning meeting.

What this means, the old + new board will meet next week for the handover of responsibilities and at that time it will be decided if the morning meeting will be held in February.
It also means that from March on we will only have the Tec-novation Center room at the Advanced Learning Library downtown from 4 – 8pm, every third Wednesday of the month.
We are keeping a couple of hours open for community knitting before the evening meeting. You are more than welcome to visit & knit from 4 – 6pm before the evening meeting begins.

If you cannot drive to the evening meeting, or would just like to carpool, please let the board know and we will absolutely help set up ride sharing. Or feel free to coordinate with your fellow members.
