May and June Programs





May -- Come for the party! and help the Christ Child society as we donate items for babies in need.  We will have a social time to have fun together and also hear about the Society from one of its representatives.

Carol and Betty have asked for additional food for the baby shower.   A paper plate with a dozen special tasty morsels will be great.   Any leftovers can be taken home.  Please remember nothing drippy or wet. The list of volunteers we already have are-

Dianna D-- paper plates, napkins and fruit dish
Carolyn M-- cookies, soda and cups
Karen L--Cookies, soda and cups
Pat Hi-- snacks
Betty P--Bar cookies

June -- Jennifer Donze, master knitter, will be with us guiding us further on how to produce polished finished projects.

"Weaving in Tails" is a hands-on workshop about the 2 best ways to weave in tails.  Special note: Please bring along a light colored swatch in plain stockinette made with worsted weight yarn, some bright colored scrap yarn and a tapestry needle.    Jennifer will talk about the planning process for weaving in tails and demonstrate the 2 best ways to weave in tails.

We have enjoyed Jennifer's presentations before and always learn so much.  See you in June!


For those who spin and dye this might make the process a little faster.
