The Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters’ Fair is one of the largest all-knitting events in Canada. For many years, the Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters' Guild has offered a one-day fair organized "by knitters for knitters."
Our May meeting is when we elect and confirm all Executive positions of the Guild for next year. The KWKG Executive is delighted to announce that several Guild members generously volunteered to join the Executive for the 2016-2017 season, and to fill other important volunteer roles. As of the end of the May 10th meeting, one Executive position still needs to be filled: Knitters' Fair co-ordinator. Please contact us for more information on any volunteer position. Hint: All Exec email addresses are included in the sidebar at the end of each newsletter.
Happy Spring, everyone! Your local yarn shops, dyers, makers, and suppliers can now apply for the biggest event of the fall: the K-W Knitters' Fair! Please tell your friends, neighbours, shops, and yarn suppliers of all kinds that we are looking for vendors, and we love to support our well-known returning shops and new makers. And save the date for your shopping pleasure: Saturday, September 10th, 2016!
Our Library Co-ordinator picked up several new books at the Toronto Knitters' Frolic on April 30th. See the 5th page of the May Newsletter for more information. Don’t forget that books you take out in May are yours for the summer, to be returned in September, 2017.
