This month’s program on Hand-Dying Yarn With Natural Dyes is being presented by Penny and Peggy of Sky Loom Weavers in Cat Springs, Texas. Penny and Peggy will talk about the process they use to create beautiful yarn using flowers, plants, and other natural materials, and show us how we can do it at home. They will also be bringing hand-dyed yarn from their shop that will be available for sale.
Our next meeting will be from 6:30-8:30pm on September 28 at a new yarn shop, Yarn Haven and Boutique, 8900 Eastloch Drive, Suite 300in Spring. The owner, Doris Scott, will be introducing her shop and telling about the latest trends in knitting and crochet. The shop’s website is www.yarnstoreboutique.com.
Have you wondered why our guild doesn’t have a website (we totally do!)? Do you worry about deleting your newsletter and then forgetting what the next meeting is about and what the homework was? Need to contact our guild treasurer about that retreat you just bought twice but can’t find her email address? Have you always wondered how to do a search on Ravelry or post to the Guild Facebook page? Then join us for a fun filled adventure through the yarny interwebs in all of its glory. Bring all of your most burning techy questions for Sarah to answer half of them while trying not to cry.
Materials to bring:
Your thinking cap
Your favorite techy device (if you’d like to follow along or get technical help at the end)
Also, our Presdient will be presenting information on our KNIT Cowl KAL. We have pattern information in our ravelry thread. We will discuss this KAL and begin voting on a pattern! I look forward to knitting with you.
We will be having a program on Fair Isle.
This program has been cancelled due to inclement weather and expected flooding. As the following Monday is Labor Day, there is no make-up meeting scheduled. We will see you for the regularly scheduled September meeting on the 25th.
Stay safe and dry everyone!

Have you ever wondered about the origins of knitting? Stopped to think, who came up with the idea of taking two sticks and some string and making a sock? Just how old is knitting? What were the first knitted items? Wonder no more. Come learn about the beginnings of knitting through the medieval period. Learn about where knitting began and what people in the dark ages knitted. There will be pictures of pieces from the medieval age, reproductions, and patterns based upon historical pieces. All taught by a noble woman from the 1300s.
