February was loads of fun! We had lots of guests + many regular members in attendance. We enjoyed an entertaining and informative video of the “Nimble Needles” guy.
On March 20th, OPK members, Lisa Brothman and Shelley Erickson, will teach us how to read knitting charts. Bring light-colored yarn (fingering or worsted weight) with appropriate-sized needles, three stitch-markers + pen and paper. Cast on 28 stitches. Come prepared to learn this vital skill and/or help a fellow member who may be new to this.
Are you ready for the next challenge? Our March challenge is scarves for Operation Gratitude. Keep in mind the size requirements (no more than 6″ wide and 50″ in length.)
The guild meets at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church (4440 N. Campbell Avenue – corner of River and Campbell). The meetings are held on the third Wednesday of the month. The start time: 9:30 am. Look for the Murphy Gallery on the East side of the church complex.
NOW IS THE TIME! Please take the time to speak to our Hospitality Chair, Sue Heck, and/or OPK member, Judith Segal, to learn more about the open positions of OPK President and Vice-President. WE NEED TO FILL these key positions which have now become vacant in 2024. Don’t be nebbish! Become one of our leaders in 2024. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Are YOU an ambassador for the Old Pueblo Knitters’ Guild? Let’s GROW our membership! OPK business cards are available at each meeting. If you know of someone who may be interested in our group, please give them one of our cards. Meetings take place the THIRD WEDNESDAY of the month at St. Philip’s Church at 4440 N. Campbell Ave, Tucson, AZ, corner of River and Campbell. Start time: 9:30 am. See you then!
