Many Guild members enjoyed the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival last weekend. The festival offers something for everyone – actually lots of things for everyone!
There were dozens of vendors selling every fiber related item imaginable and especially lots of yarn; animal barns full of sheep, goats, rabbits, lamas, and alpacas; classes galore; a lovely display of items made by our Tigard Knitting Guild members; and a fiber division featuring work from invited artists as well as lots of items entered just for fun. This last group included some items by Guild members and some of those items won prizes. (more…)
Do you have August 8th circled on your calendar? You are needed that day to help at the Knit Out and Crochet Too. The Knit Out is an annual event at the Tigard Public Library. The Knitting Guild and Crochet Guild join together to teach the public how to knit or crochet. The event is from 11:00am to 3:00pm. You can volunteer for an hour or all day, whichever you choose, but please volunteer.
We had a bit of miscommunication with the library, so the Knitting Guild will not have a lobby display case this year. We can display all of our items the day of the event. That’s where you come in. Everyone needs to bring lots of knit items to the next meeting. Please attach a label with your name on it to everything. All items will be returned at the August meeting. If you need it back before the meeting date, please let me know and I will get it to you. There are lots of tables to cover with sweaters, afghans, scarves, crocheted toilets, gloves, hats, etc.
Note: This is an annual event that guild members enjoy participating in.
