Mid-Michigan Knitters Guild

Monday, September 15th, 2008

The Mid-Michigan Knitters Guild will have their first monthly meeting this week, Tuesday night, from 7-9pm. The location is the Haslett Schools Administration building.

Haslett is just east of East Lansing. The meeting place is essentially a few blocks behind the Meridian Mall. It is just off Marsh Road, turn east at the light by the Middle School, park at the middle school (unless you need handicapper parking, etc.) and cross the street to the lovely new building. For those who know the library, you would just zigzag past Meridian High School/Community Ed Building and turn left and you’d see the library. Click the Admin. Building link and see a Google map.

The address is 5593 Franklin Street (very near Nemoke Trail). Our meeting room is downstairs. It’s a new building, I’m sure there is an elevator though I did not use it myself last time.

This is a guild for anyone who enjoys working with yarn or fiber. You can knit, you can crochet, you can weave, make felt, spin… you can wish you knew how to do any of those things but not know how yet. All ages, cultural backgrounds, men and women are welcome. No fee to walk in the door… though we who return each month do pay a small fee for dues to help the group continue.

We would love to see new faces. Just walk in and say “hi, I’m new, my name is….” and you will be welcomed. Please, if you are in Lansing and haven’t come yet, consider it this Tuesday.

Oh, the photo was taken in 2005… that is Rob from Threadbear holding up some lace he knit. He does not love photos, and it seems every shot I have of him he is covering up his face with some knitting. Nevertheless, I did not have an easy time finding a photo of guild meeting, even though I swear I take pictures at every meeting I attend!

PS: Anyone reading this who goes to the meeting and has a blog, please repost this entry on your own blog if you will. The papers did not get notice this month (my fault, I had the meeting on my calendar for  next week) and so we are depending on word of mouth and previous members this time.
