Where has the summer gone? Did I miss it?
We've had a committee meeting and I've sorted out the programme for the next year. I hope you'll all approve. I will be snail-mailing it to you in the very near future, together with the summer reminder letter that we send to all club members every August to remind you that the new year is about to start, so watch for the postman. Once the members have all had their copy of the programme, I'll post it here on the blog-spot as well.
Our next meeting on 4th September is of course the Annual General Meeting, but those of you have attended before will know it's not a major part of the meeting. In fact if I can it will last about 10 minutes - just long enough to make sure you're all happy with the way the Club is being run and approve last years accounts. Fiona has once again come up trumps and balanced the books and prepared a budget so that I know how much I can spend this year.
So what else have I got planned for our September meeting? Well, we will be having a demonstration of how to knit flowers. So many of you asked how I had made the ones on the shoes I did for the club challenge that I thought you might like to have a go. (There is a picture of the shoes somewhere here on the blog.) There will be other flowers to knit as well, not just that one type, some hand knitted, some machine knitted. I will also be bring along with me some rather unusual items knitted by the Sherborne Knitting Club. They are with me on loan so that they can be displayed at the Stitch and Creative Craft Show at the Sandown Park Exhibition Centre, Esher, from 21st to 23rd September, but I did ask if I could show you as well.
So I'd better get on and prepare the letters to send to the Club members. I hope to see you all on 4th September, 8pm as usual and visitors will be welcome.
