We are supposed to meet in Room A-17. If you are in the parking lot facing the building, go up the steps to the left and in that door. It is the first room on the left.
At the meeting, we will be voting on new officers so it’s important to have folks to attend so we have quorum. if you can’t attend, please give your proxy to another member. We’ll be ramping up for World Wide Knit in Public Day, so we’ll be working on pieces for the yarn art installation on the Mint Museum steps, putting together learn to knit kits and organizing door prizes. So please bring swatches or ufos to donate, unloved needles in larger sizes and dk, worsted or bulky yarn for learn to knit kits. And if you have any charity items for the Batte Cancer Center at Northeast Medical, please bring those too. Plus items for show and tell!
