A new year and a new location for the Guild. After much discussion and a trial meeting the members have decided to change meeting locations.
We are now meeting at the Chartwell Renaissance, 6676 203rd St., Langley. We are meeting in the multi-purpose room, on the first floor, up a slight ramp, left from the lobby. Doors open for us at 7:30pm. Everyone is welcome. Please sign in at the front desk.

Our website and blog has been sadly neglected. We’ve had some difficulty finding someone that is as passionate about blogging as we are about knitting.
We are still active. Meeting once a month from September to November and January to June. And attending both the Lower Mainland Sheep Producers Association’s(LMSPA) annual fleece sale, Wool ‘n’ Ewe A-Fair, and Fibres West.
We will continue to look for someone to update the website regularly but until then we invite you to join as on Facebook and Ravelry, where we have a more active presence. And someone is always monitoring the email account so if you have any questions you can email us at email@example.com.
Our meetings are held the 4th Wednesday of the month at Christ the Redeemer Anglican Church (16613 Bell Road, Surrey). We meet on the lower level, behind the church, in the daycare. Meetings start at 7:30pm.
This years meeting dates are:
October 28th, 2015
November 25th, 2015
January 27th, 2016
February 24th, 2016
March 23rd, 2016
April 27th, 2016
May 25th, 2016 (This will be our Annual General Meeting)

We welcome anyone that is interested to join us at one of our meetings.

We are going to do a better job of providing updates here. Kinda how we used to.
We’ve just had our October meeting and it was small and cozy. It’s a 5-Wednesday month, which can be confusing, but the newsletter came out today – a great reminder.
We had 8 in attendance, and covered everything from ‘reading your knitting’ to cast-ons, and we had a round of in-progress and on-phone show and tell. Show and tell really is great. It’s where you can see what others have done, and maybe learn something about a yarn or a technique. At every meeting, try to come prepared to show and tell!
Our November meeting is occurring on the 4th Wednesday of the month and will be a potluck with a swap. Got yarn, needles or books that you want to swap? Bring it. More details to follow in the member newsletter.

With the hot weather, it can be hard to keep on knitting. I’ve had to set aside a couple of projects because the yarn’s just too warm to work with. An alpaca hat that I could have finished in a few days is on hiatus because it’s just too fuzzy. Instead, I’ve dug out a sweater that I keep meaning to finish. It’s knit with linen yarn, which is beautifully cool. Is anyone else knitting with cotton, linen, hemp, or just hiding out somewhere with air conditioning? And is anyone else counting down the days until it gets cool again so you can knit with woolly yarn?
