MKG Cable Gram - Volume 17, Number 4
After months of planning and preparation, the final pieces of the Textile Center Library are coming together! As I write this article (in mid-November), the search is on for a professional librarian. Computers and software are being purchased, many feet of new bookshelves have been ordered, and the search for donated tables and chairs has been successful.
The McKnight Foundation is calling for artists to be a part of their dynamic new web site. This site will compile web pages where artists can show work, highlight exhibitions and publications, or advertise classes, workshops and other services. And it is FREE!
Martha Baker is a woodcut artist whose passion is incorporating art into color knitting. A Minnesota native, Baker was taught knitting at an early age by both her mother and her father. She has studied with Kaffe Fasset, and recommends his book "Glorious Inspirations."
When we join an organization, we should certainly expect some special privileges - and some responsibilities to each other as well. This newsletter is one of the great benefits of membership in the Minnesota Knitters' Guild. Everyone-all 325 members throughout the state and abroad-gets the newsletter.

This is the event you have all been waiting for! In just a few short weeks — Saturday, April 17, to be exact — knitting royalty from around the country will be converging at Hopkins High School for a day of learning, fun, and stash enhancement. This is the MKG's 24th annual Yarnover, and for many members it kicks off the spring. The most difficult choice is which of the three- to six-hour classes to take. If workshops aren’t your thing, be sure to check out our ever-popular market, where wonderful goodies await your perusal. New this year, you can come and just see the keynote speaker for $5 (exact change please), if you do not wish to take any classes.
Get the most out of your love of knitting! Membership benefits include pre-registration for Yarnover, a subscription to our quarterly Cable Gram, organized public service projects and camaraderie with fellow knitters. Annual dues are $30.
