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 Speaker: JC Briar
Program Topic: Don't Follow That Pattern
JC Briar is coming! The next meeting is going to be fun, interesting and educational. Come one, come all!
JC is a self-confessed "techniques freak" and "skill junkie" that dabbles in all kinds of knitting. She has a special fondness for textured knitting and novel construction techniques. If it involves lace, cables, ore seamless construction, it's sure to catch her eye. She shares her enthusiasm by teaching at shops and fiber festivals, and through her book, Charts Made Simple. Her latest venture is Stitch-Maps.com, a website for viewing and creating grid-free charts of unparalleled fluidity, authenticity, and beauty.
Her topic for the meeting is "Don't Follow That Pattern! Why, When, and How to Go Your Own Way." I can't wait to hear what she has to say as well as see the items she is bringing to share. I'm looking forward to learning new skills (a set-in sleeve for one thing) to make me a better knitter.
For those planning to attend the October retreat go to jcbriar.com for a list of what she will be teaching, the materials list and the homework to be done before hand.
