New Knitting Group!

A knitting group is finally starting up in Chilliwack! We need your support to make this a success.

All knitters in the Upper Fraser Valley are welcome. This will be an informal group for knitters to get together to enjoy each others' company, show off finished projects, get help with new techniques and confusing pattern directions, and offer encouragement to newer knitters. Although there will be no business type meeting and no dues, with everyone's help lets make this a fun and learning environment --- more than your average "stitch n bitch". Possible activities could include knit-a-longs, challenges, charity knitting, socials, "yarn crawls", technique demonstrations, field trips, swap tables, guest speakers, book and yarn reviews, knitting humor readings and so on.

Bring your knitting and your friends to the first meeting, to be held in the multipurpose room at the Chilliwack Library on Sunday, May 4th from 1 - 3 pm. At this first gathering we will discuss arrangements for possible meeting dates and times and choose a group name so we can be included in the next Leisure Guide.

We have the summer months ahead of us to gather socially, and will launch into full operation come September when the Leisure Guide comes out and everyone is back into their fall routines.

Hope to see you there!

Email me if you're interested. My e-addy is on my profile page. Thanks!
