- From Penny Tschantz: As most of you are aware, our guild has committed to donate 100 hours of time to the Smoky Mountain Fiber Arts Festival in April. Volunteers are needed currently to recruit business sponsors, and to distribute signs to be posted at sites where interested people may see them (store windows, notice boards in public places, etc.) Posters and sponsor forms will be available at the December guild meeting. Please help!
- January: Roc Day Meeting -- Bring finger food to share. Utensils *will* be provided. There will be a gift exchange for those who would like to participate. We have set a $15 limit on the gift value. If you do not wish to participate no gift is needed.
- February: Special Event - Hat Challenge. Knit any hat you want using hand spun yarn only. This is not a contest, just a fun knit for show and tell.
- Looking for a pattern for the Hat Challenge? Here are some hat pattern listings on Ravelry that you can narrow down based on your finished yarn's size and your yardage.
