Next Meeting
Tuesday September 4, 2012 @ 7 p.m.

Come join us for our September meeting.  This is a favorite as the program is a display of our State Fair entries and winners!  If you want to be inspired, this is the meeting to be at. 
There are photos of items from the Fabric and Threads display available to view by checking out our "see what we do..." section to the lower right of this page.
The winners list can also be found online at the Iowa State Fair site: http://www.iowastatefair.org/competition/results/wilcox-wins-big-in-iowa-state-fair-hand-knitting-contest/

Hope to see you at the meeting!
August Meeting 7:00 August 7, 2012
Looking for a new source for knitting patterns and information about knitting? Try the Des Moines Public Library (www.dmpl.org). The library is always adding new books on this subject. A recent item is Ultimate Mittens by Robin Hansen is available in our system. This book contains 28 classic patterns for mittens. I know many of you are fans of Stephanie Pearl-McPhee’s Yarn Harlot blog. All Wound Up is her current collection of knitting essays and fun to read anytime. Vogue Knitting Knitopedia is an interesting collection of all things knitting. It’s fun to just flip through this book and read things that don’t usually come up in our pattern directions. Chris Shelton will have these books and some others on display at our next meeting.

In addition Cindy Griese will talk about her trip to Norway with Arnhild.   
Please come join us and do some relaxing knitting after the flurry of getting fair entries finished, blocked and delivered!
