Next Meeting – June 15, 2019

Our next meeting is scheduled for June 15, the third Saturday of the month. This is a change from our normal meeting day.

June 8 is Worldwide Knit in Public Day, so go forth and knit in public! Please share with us if you know of any places for this event.

We have a winner!

Remember the Rose City Yarn Crawl in March? The 2019 Yarn Crawl featured a large Binkwaffle Bag with a lovely turquoise trellis pattern, reversing to paisley. Our very own Mary Mocklin won a bag!

These were made especially as Shop Prize Bags, so that every RCYC Shop could fill them to the brim with yarns and goodies!
Several of the LYS also purchased additional “RCYC Print” Binkwaffle Bags – and there are still a limited number of them available. So if you didn’t win won of our 66 Prizes this year, you CAN still purchase one of these Limited Edition RCYC-print Bags! They are perfect for projects on the go, with a cool handle to slip over your wrist. And because they’re reversible, you can change the look to suit your mood!

Congratulations, Mary!

Salem Millstream Knitting Guild Beach Retreat May 16-19, 2019 Day Visitors

The Retreat Committee for the May 16-19, 2019 retreat in Rockaway has been asked about day use visitors. In reviewing our contract with Twin Rocks and double checking with them, day use visitors are welcome. There is a charge for each person attending with and without meals.

Attached is the Registration Form and the Hold Harmless Agreement. Both of these documents must be received by March 15, 2019 if you plan on attending one of the days of the Retreat. The Hold Harmless Agreement is necessary as the Guild is not financially able to purchase a liability insurance policy and Twin Rocks is allowing the use of this Agreement.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

February 2019 Meeting Cancelled

The Salem Millstream Knitting Guild meeting scheduled for Saturday, February 9, 2019 is cancelled due to the impending inclement weather that is being predicated starting tonight (2/8). This wasn’t an easy decision to make. We have rescheduled Stephania with Three Fates Yarns several other times. However, in conversation with Stephania, she agreed that it is better to err on the side of caution.
