Spring Charity Knit-In 2018

As always, the knit-in is open to anyone who likes to knit and/or crochet for charity.  Please help spread the word! Feel free to bring a food item to share with the group.  We will have an oven and a microwave to heat up food.  Water, coffee, and tea will be provided.  

 
The first 25 people to check-in will receive a door prize.  We will have a drawing for three raffle prizes at the end of the knit-in.  Everyone can earn one raffle ticket for each of the following and there is no limit to how many tickets you can earn:
  •  Attend the event
  •  Bring a non-member guest
  •  Turn in a completed, handmade charity item
  •  Donate a ball of acrylic/washable yarn for charity
 
We will play a knitting related game. Participation in the game is purely voluntary and the winners will receive prizes. If you want to play, be sure to bring your knitting notions.  Game rules will be revealed at the knit-in.  
 
To RSVP for the knit-in, please email  knitatnightguildcharity@gmail.com with the names of the people in your group (which will help me with the preparation of door prizes), and also email me if you have ideas/projects for charity knitting or any questions. 

 

Houston Fiber Fest 2017

There’s more to Houston Fiber Fest than just classes and shopping; there’s also the fun of meeting new friends! The Meet-Up Table in the atrium (look for the balloons!) is the place to be. There will be knit- and crochet-alongs, stitch marker swaps, demos, and lots of opportunities for you to talk with other Houston area fiber enthusiasts who share your interests. When the vendor hall closes on Friday and Saturday evening, gather at the table to coordinate group outings to local restaurants.

Paint Your Own Yarn Bowl

Purchase your spot through the KANG website and join us for two hours of creative fun as we decorate a ceramic yarn bowl. The bowls are 5-3/4″ wide and 3-1/2″ tall. Bowls will be fired at the studio and available to pick up at a later time. Tickets will be on sale 3/1.
 
See http://purpleglazepottery.com/ for more information about painting ceramics and the studio.
