Please join the Minnesota Knitters' Guild as we welcome Beth McLaughlin on Tuesday, June 17th at 7:00 p.m.
If you take a minute to think about it, all knitters are caretakers of their own textile collections. We take our time choosing the right yarn, the right needles, even the perfect pattern. But, do we invest enough time in cleaning, folding and storing our knitted items that we have invested so much time in creating?
Our guest speaker, Beth McLaughlin, is a professional textile conservator. She will guide us through some professional tips and tricks for best caring for our precious finished objects. Beth will also spend some time answering your questions. So, bring those burning questions to our June meeting, after all, there will be an expert on-hand.
Please join the Minnesota Knitters' Guild as we welcome Wendy Johnson on Tuesday, May 20 at 7:00 p.m.
Have you ever really thought about yarn? How is it dyed? How does the twist in one yarn compare to the twist in another yarn? Why does one fiber work perfectly for a hat, but not a pair of socks? How does yarn work, and how can I make yarn work for me; the knitter!
On May 20 2014, meet Wendy Johnson, our former cablegram editor and author of the new book "Yarn Works". Wendy will be on hand to share her wealth of yarny knowledge with us. So bring your knitting, and be prepared to leave with a whole new appreciation for that lovely string between your needles.
Wendy has also graciously donated three copies of her new book for door prizes. Copies of her book will also be available for purchase, and Wendy will be delighted to sign copies of her book.
