Don't forget to read the draft June minutes to see if any changes need to be made before accepting them at this meeting.

Note: Our very own Chris Bindrim should be dropping by with his yarn stash that he needs to downsize.  If I understood correctly he will take any donation for yarn so expect some bargains, but please confirm with him first that that is what he meant.

February Meeting

 The February meeting will be held at the Birchwood Community Center, 5623 TN-60, Birchwood, TN 37308 (our new home) at 10 am Saturday 19th of February.

For those that would like to partake in some retail therapy Phyllis has kindly agreed to open R&M Yarns from 9 to 9.30 am. It's on the way if traveling from Cleveland.

Program this month: Hint's and Tips.  Each attending member should bring along a hint or tip they have found useful (if you have one).  Each participant will need to explain this hint or tip and Steve will record details - speak slowly my short hand is shocking - then produce a compilation to circle to all members.  Be prepared to answer questions should any of the other members have them.
