Did you miss this month’s meeting? Here’s a short wrap up.
Kyle Kunnecke from Makers’ Mercantile presented this month’s Trunk Show and shared a variety of kits and products they are featuring right now.
Molly Lynch, an occupational therapist, joined us this month to talk about reducing risk and preventing injuries while we’re knitting. Her presentation was full of exercises, videos, and information. We will include her presentation on the member dashboard for your reference.
Jess Dahlberg is stepping down as the Guild’s newsletter editor. Huge thanks to Jess for sending out Guild updates and the meeting link every month. If you’re interested in this position, email Kelly (email@example.com) for more information.
The Textile Center will be having a Holiday Shop in the coming months. They’ve asked Guilds to demonstrate during the shop hours. Watch the website for more information and how to sign up.
