October Meeting

 Nancy will be teaching us how to make a 4" knitted bear with movable arms and legs.  You will need size 2 needles and a yarn needle for sewing the project together.  The bear is made from worsted yarn, but don't buy any. Just bring scraps.  Nancy will bring stuffing and yarn if you need it.

Holidays Approaching

As of September meeting we still do not have a location for our Christmas get together.  If you can think of some place we could hold this let us know.  Also, there are modified instructions for the beggars bags we are making for 2013.  This will be posted soon.

Only October and November meetings are left for this year and we are looking for ideas for next year.  If you would like to teach a class or have an idea you would like to share please let Ramona know.

If you have not yet payed your dues please take care of that ASAP.  International Old Lacers, Inc. recently noted a decline in membership.  Please consider joining the national guild.  It is relatively inexpensive and it does give you some nice benefits - like access to the lending library.

There is some discussion about changing the name of the national guild and doing some re-branding.  If you would like to share your input there is an email address listed in the current bulletin for sending in your 2 cents.

As a side note there is now a Facebook page for our group.  If you want to "like" it just click the button to the right.
