Welcome to the new KANG website

Knit At Night Guild

Please bear with us as we revamp KnitAtNight.org. We have an updated design and more new features on the way. Here are some of the pages you may want to keep an eye on:

News – This feed will keep you informed of all the latest KANG news. New posts will appear right on the home page.

Calendar – Check here for a list of each chapter’s programs for the current month, as well as any upcoming special events or workshops. This page will be updated regularly.

Members Only – Most of the website content has been moved out into the open and is visible to the public, but the Members Only page remains password protected. This is for information to be given only to guild members, such as the member directory, board meeting minutes, etc.

FAQ – stands for Frequently Asked Questions. If you have a question about the guild that isn’t answered there, let us know by emailing website@knitatnight.org.

KANG Navasota Retreat!

It’s time to sign-up for the 2015 KANG Navasota Retreat. It will be held at Camp Allen in Navasota, Texas, on February 20-22. The total cost for the retreat is $190. You can pay half now as a down payment. The final amount is due by February 14, 2015. Please note, there is no partial payment if you can only be at the retreat for part of the time.

Additionally, there will be fewer spots this year than in years past. So get your registration in early. All registrations MUST be postmarked no earlier than November first. Click here to download a registration form.

So, what can you expect on the retreat? It’s a fun, relaxing weekend where KANG members can kick back and knit/crochet/weave/spin to their hearts content! There is no set schedule or any classes or programs. However, in years past many of us have ventured up to WC Mercantile in Navasota on Saturday morning. And on Saturday evening, we’ve had a show & share. And there may even be a little surprise on Saturday night…

All meals starting with dinner Friday night through breakfast Sunday morning are provided by the staff. For those with food allergies, please contact Camp Allen directly. The website for Camp Allen is www.campallen.org. I can tell you from personal experience that the meals are hearty. You might need to take a hike through the woods to walk off the pounds you’ll be putting on. Bring your flashlight for a midnight hike, though it’s not needed to get from the hotel to the conference center.

All rooms are double occupancy. You can request a specific roommate, or meet somebody new. The rooms are standard hotel rooms, so bring your own toothpaste and hairbrush.

Our gatherings during the day are held in a conference room with chairs and tables provided. In evenings we have been known to take over the rocking chairs around the fireplace. The hotel rooms and conference center are handicap accessible.

Lastly, I know some of y’all want to bring your friends and/or spouses. However, the retreat is only for members. So just pass them a membership form and have them sign up!

If you have any additional questions, please ask! You can reach me at president@knitatnight.org or email Angela Fryers (the retreat coordinator) at treasurer@knitatnight.org.

See ya’ll at Camp Allen!!!

Executive President for KANG

K.A.N.G. chapter is now K.N.I.T.

The original chapter name has changed!  The chapter members voted and the new name for the original chapter of KANG is Knitter’s Night In Town, or KNIT.  Now each chapter has its own name and each chapter is part of KANG.

Texian Market Days

Texian Market Day at George Ranch Historical Park will be October 25, 2014 from 9am to 5pm. We need people to sit and knit and/or crochet on the porch of the George Ranch house. You can knit/crochet for as long as you like. If it’s for 30 min. or a couple of hours, or knit/crochet for a while and take a break and go see the park and come back, etc.

Please let me know if you are interested at ca6209@flash.net. If you can, let me know as soon as possible. I will email you the information for getting into the park and about the lunch they will provide for you.

Thanks,
Ann Cole

Membership drive

Last year, we had 157 members – about half as many members as we have had in previous years. Over the next year, all members are encouraged to get their non-KANG member knitting/crocheting/spinning friends to join KANG. Come next July, the current member who brings in the most new members will get a prize. Start talking up the guild ladies!

Land’s End KANG merchandise

You asked, and we listened. You can now order clothing and other items from Land’s End and have them embroidered with the official KANG logo. Just go to www.landsend.com/business and create your own account. Once you have an account, you can add the logo to your library within “account information”. The Customer Number is 6006634, and the Logo Number is 1281587.

The original logo is blue (like the KANG wallets), but you can change the color to coordinate with your shirt at no cost. The logo is about 2-1/2″ x 2-1/4″. It’s the same one we used when we ordered denim shirts a few years ago. Now everyone can order the style they like best, and get it shipped right to your door! Enjoy!
