what a busy night at the October meeting!!








We enjoyed a beautiful trunk show by Erica Proschkow ~ what great examples of her beautiful work! From her first knitting - of doll clothes - to the weaving with Siberian iris leaves and all the gorgeous knitting in between it was definitely exciting and inspiring.

A big thanks to Michele Dagenais, Diane Dinisky,
Suzanne Jones and Charli Osborne for donating terrific raffle items! The luck recipients were Kara Hamilton - yarn and a handmade bag, Merritt Collins [forgive me, I don't remember the 2nd part of your last name] - sock yarn, Adina Rubenstein - sock yarn, Joan LaForest - sock yarn, Kathleen Hearne - a knitting book, Linda Francisco - sock yarn and a hat pattern, Kate Pulta - sock yarn, and Katy Race - yarn and knitting magazines.

Lori Sheffield of Skeins on Main gets a big thank you for sharing the fall trends with us. Everyone enjoyed trying on the Origami sweater ~ we know it will soon be on many BSKG member's needles!

Designers that sparked interest: Candace Eisner Strick - merging colors. http://www.strickwear.com; Hanne Falkenberg http://knit.dk [she designed the geometric striped wrap from Erika's trunk show]. You can order through the website or support your LYS and special order from them.

Upcoming events: October 24-25 - 3rd annual Fiber Expo in Ann Arbor, www.fiberexpo.com
November 14 - 2009 Shop Hop. You can sign up for carpooling at the Nov. guild meeting.

Next month is the Mystery Brown Bag Swap ~ bring a knitting related item [up to $10] in a plain brown bag [or gussy it up if you're compelled to!] and we'll have fun swapping & trading! Just some of the fun being a BSKG member!

Next month is also the charity kick off. There will be kits and charity yarn available to help you help others.

If all that's not enough... we have 3 nominees for Vice President! Rita Perrone, Kelley Anderson & Charli Osborne are all great candidates... so get ready to ponder who will be the one this year!
