Potluck party where our members bring the treats. We also will have our annual silent auction that benefits our Service Committee fund. Members can donate any yarn or knitting supplies they no longer need. This is a great way to switch up your stash and benefit a good cause!
Start the New Year off with a hearty laugh at the Minnesota Knitters’ Guild’s January 15, 2012 meeting, featuring podcasters Melanie and Deborah Gall, the two hosts from the The Savvy Girls Podcast.
Coming to you from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada; New York, New York, USA; and wherever else they may happen to be, sisters Melanie and Deborah take a playful and thoughtful look at knitting (among other things). Both sisters travel extensively - Melanie is a professional singer and actress and Deborah’s career has posted her throughout the world, and they have a wide range of stories about knitting, art, literature, travel, music, and – of course – everyday life. Be prepared to laugh!
Melanie may also inspire you to sing with her recently released CD, Knitting All the Day, a collection of never-before-recorded WWI knitting (yes, knitting!) music from Canada, Britain, France and the USA. Copies will be available at the meeting.
For those of you who aren’t quite sure what a podcast is, it’s a short, episodic digital show, available to download or stream to your computer or mobile device, such as an iPod.
The Savvy Girls podcast is available on iTunes and you can also check out their website at http://savvygirls.ca. New shows are released twice monthly.
See you in January!

Holiday Party "An Afternoon Tea"
February Northern Lights Meeting View Details
Host - Kathy Thomas
Yarn Harbor will be hosting the February meeting at the shop. The topic will be Pop Knitting. We’ll be taking a closer look at Brit-Marie Christoffersson’s new book, focusing on the first chapters of Two-Color Garter Stitch. Please join us.
Each February, we forgo our usual Tuesday evening meeting and instead warm a cold Sunday afternoon with a tea party. Please join us for a pleasant afternoon of drinking tea, eating treats and socializing. This year, we will add a member fashion show to our time together and ask everyone to bring a garment you've created in the past year to share in an informal show and tell.
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.
