We had a great guild meeting on May 12th. The educational topic was “Measurements”. We touched briefly on some important points. (Unintended pun…) I pulled the graphics for that lesson’s worksheet from a free PDF put out by the Craft Yarn Council. It has a ton of information and is inclusively useful to pattern designers and knitters at all levels. Craft Yarn Council Standards & Guidelines

June 9th is World Wide Knit in Public Day. We hold our official guild meeting for the month on this date at the Marketplace on Ming Ave. ALL knitters, crocheters, and other interested fiber enthusiasts are welcome to join the crowd. We’ll start by collecting any remaining election ballots for next year’s board members. The new board will be announced toward the end of the event.

A new social knitting spot has cropped up in Northeast Bakersfield at Summitt Coffee on Thursday mornings from ~9 AM for a couple of hours. Location is 7100 Auburn St across from Canyon Hill’s Church at Hwy 178 & Morning Dr. If this ends up being a regular gathering spot, we may add it to the calendar.

We have reach maximum capacity for the 2018 Retreat and will start a wait list if you are interested in attending. We almost always have a couple of people cancel at the last minute.
