Unless otherwise posted, Tigard Knitting Guild meetings are held the
Tigard Senior Center, 8815 Southwest Omara Street, Tigard, OR
We meet at 7pm, on the third (3rd) Thursday of each month.
Meetings are approximately two hours in length. The first hour is the monthly program which may be a featured speaker, discussion, or hands-on technique (see below). The second hour is for "sharing" our current and finished projects. Guests and members alike are welcome to bring any open questions, and in-progress or finished knitted items to share.
You are welcome to attend as a guest for two meetings prior to joining our Guild.
Program: TKG 25th Anniversary Celebration
Twenty years ago a small group of local, dedicated, talented, enthusiastic knitters founded the Tigard Knitting Guild and held their first official meeting. Many of those founding members have since moved on but the guild itself still remains in Tigard and continues to thrive. At September's meeting we will celebrate and honor ourselves, the Tigard Knitting Guild members.
We have a few current members who attended the earliest meetings in 1994. Some of them have agreed to tell us how the guild came to be and about the founding members, about the history and how things have changed over the years. Additionally some our past and present members who own small businesses are going to bring their products to sell and will tell us a little about their businesses.
In addition to our usual "Show and Tell", we are going to have a very special "Retro Show and Tell" for everyone who is interested in participating. Anyone who brings (or wears) a garment they knitted in the 1990's or before will win a special retro prize. The more dated that garment looks, the better. It should be a lot of fun.
Plan to attend and celebrate with cake, ice cream and tea.
October: Yarn Swap/Silent Auction
November: Hand Dyeing Demo with Food Safe Dyes
