August Meeting Minutes
Knitters enjoyed the August meeting at Silver Falls State Park. The weather was just right. We had plenty of time to visit and share ideas. While we were waiting for our food, Marcia and Julie taught us rubber band bracelet making. It was informative and cute. It is good for us to know what crafts the young people are doing. You are now in the know. 🙂
Aran Learn Along
There are only three more Aran stitch patterns for the Learn Along scarf. Judith Bither was our researcher for interesting facts on the Zig Zag stitch. All previous monthly patterns are on the Guild’s Learn Along page.
If you are having any issues with any of the stitches, let’s talk on Saturday.
Mela Hoyt-Heydon from Atelier Mela (Fine Millinery) at the Willamette Heritage Center will demonstrate and give fashion advice on how to wear and enjoy neck attire (formally known as scarves and shawls). So many of us make beautiful scarves and shawls, but we do not know how to wear them, tie them or keep them on. Mela will tell us about her life as a costume designer and the many insights on designing the right attire.
We will have hands-on practice wearing and fastening scarves. Please bring scarves to practice with; especially bring ones that have been causing you trouble. If you have scarf pins, magnets, or circles, bring them along.
Coral Reef Project
Check out the Coral Reef Project on the Salem Millstream Knitting Guild website, including a selection of patterns – both knit and crochet. You can also visit Coral Knit Fiber Arts and click on the “The Community Coral Reef Project” for more information and inspiration.
