Workshops will begin on the 26th. If you haven't signed up already, you can register the morning of the class assuming there are openings. Check the catalog on the website.
Consider volunteering for a few hours while you attend the festival. Spend a couple hours monitoring the gallery or head down on Friday and help during judging and set up. We'd love to have your help! Contact Sue L if you are interested.
We still need at least one person to help during Jeanne Carver's presentation on Saturday. If you didn't get enough of her talk last month she will be speaking over the lunch hour both Saturday and Sunday.

Household items can be blankets, cozies, afghans, curtains, coasters, pillows, bedspreads, etc. Your choice. It must be knitted in 2014 in order to be eligible. Feel free to bring any of these items during each month's show and tell to share your talent and ideas!

Members have access to special member retreats twice per year.
We are knitting chemo hats and premie hats. The adult-sized ones go to Knight's OHSU cancer center on 158th and Walker. The small ones go to Dornbecher Hospital near the VA. The hats need to be soft and washable.Superwash wool is OK, but a good yarn choice is acrylic or a bamboo blend, and, in the summer, cotton or cotton/bamboo. They should be as cheerful and fun as possible using various colors or patterns, lace, etc. Anna Guillemot, who is collecting the hats at meetings and distributing them, launders everything as she says that yarn has a tendency to be rather dirty, depending on provenance.
CLICK for Babies (Purple Hat Campaign to prevent shaking babies) is colleting purple hats for babies until Oct 1st. (Hats can be dropped off at Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel.) For information regarding the charity, please visit http://www.clickforbabies.org.
TKG offers knitting-related workshops throughout the year.
