The Knit & Stitch group was very pleased with the success of their stall at the Christmas Boutique and thank all those members who purchased many of their craft items. The group has met once since the New Year and will be meeting on Wednesday, January 22 and on February 5. The host of
the following meeting on February 19 has not yet been decided.
The Knit & Stich group is meeting once more before the Christmas Boutique. Our first meeting in the New Year will be on Wednesday, January 8, 2020.
We are all working like beavers to get all our items completed by December 3. We will have a great variety of handmade items that will make wonderful Christmas gifts – scarves, shoulder wraps, knitted slippers, place mats, baby clothes, dish cloths, Christmas decorations, cushions, to name just a few. In addition, we have two gorgeous items for the raffle – a white crocheted lap blanket and a tote bag. Tickets are on sale for $2 each or 3 for $5.
So please come on December 3 with lots of money, cash or cheques, to do your Christmas shopping.
The Knit and Stitch Interest Group will be meeting on Wednesday, March 20 at 10:00 am on April 10. Our final meeting on April 24 will be a social lunch, probably at a restaurant, but the venue has not yet been decided. Members are giving considerable thought to producing items for the FWC Boutique Sale in December. We are focusing on small, inexpensive items suitable for Christmas gifts or decorations such as table mats, cushion covers, winter toques, cowls, neck warmers, knitted slippers and stuffed animals. We would welcome ideas from other FWC members, as we would like to produce items that would appeal to all of you.
