Our program in February is local blogger, podcaster, and pattern designer . . . who goes by the "handle" of Pixie Purls.This month is a raffle month -- a great chance to de-clutter if getting organized was one of your resolutions for 2009.
There are now three Pixie Purls patterns available for purchase at yarn shops around the country. Only Ewe and Cotton Too will be selling these patterns at the February guild meeting, so you can buy one and have it autographed! Our guest will be talking about how to start a blog, a podcast, and how to start designing your own patterns. You can read the Pixie Purls blog, and listen to the podcast . . . by visiting her website at http://pixiepurls.com/.
There will also be the usual opportunities -- library, swift & ball winder, and yarn tasting.
And if you are working on Stitches South centerpiece flowers, now is the time to get those back to the committee so that they can be assembled! April will be here before you know it, so the more we do now the more relaxed we can be in the spring.
One final reminder -- we need bears for the trauma bear table at Stitches South. If you don't want to knit a giant flower but you do enjoy teddy bear fashion, Jean would really appreciate some finished bears that will help get the table off to a good start.
