May Business Meeting

Is everyone still basking in the afterglow of STITCHES South?

Tomorrow night is our annual business meeting. Additionally, we've invited the shops for a Market Night. TNNA, the big trade show, is in June. So this meeting will be a chance to talk to the local shops about upcoming trends. What do you want to be knitting with this fall? What have you heard about but not yet seen? What are the shops eager to show you?

For a change of pace, we'll start the meeting off with show and tell. As the shops have been encouraged to bring some of their bargains -- things that have fallen out of season, a discontinued yarn, or just the last ball from a dye lot -- members are encouraged to show off any stash-busting or one or two skein projects. What can we do when we find a great bargain but there's only one skein? Tomorrow night, ya'all can show us!

In the business part of the meeting, there will be a few announcements and lots of thank-yous for this unprecedented year. Finally, we'll end with voting on the proposed by-laws changes and the new slate of officers for the Executive Board.

See you tomorrow at 6:30 PM for socializing, 7:30 PM for the meeting.
