Happy Fall

Hello Knitters,
A reminder of our Meeting on Tuesday 3rd October at 7pm at the Mennonite Church Hall on Lower Horning Road, Hamilton.  This Tuesday night at 7pm, Jane Cudmore will show us all about her antique sock machine which she will bring. We can all get a good look at it, and find out how it works, with her guidance. Thank you Jane, for sharing your knowledge.


Quote from Jane,

"Jane Cudmore will bring her antique circular sock machine to the meeting.  She will share information about sock machines and make a sock.  If you would like to test out her sock machine and create a tube ready for "after thought" cuffs, heels and toes, bring 100g of sock yarn."


So come along and bring your regular knitting too of course and anything you want to show and tell.


Our Knit-a-Longs are all set for the next couple of months.


Sock Knit-a-Longs         Thursday October 19th at Linda's
                                       Thursday November 16th at Susan's


Sanquhar Glove             Thursday October 26th at Fran's
Knit-a-Longs                  Thursday November 23rd at Cindy's


 Come along and knit and chat and learn some new ideas.

Help Needed

Please read attached note and if you feel that you can help, then get knitting.

September 19, 2017
The floods in northern Manitoba have seriously disrupted many Indigenous communities. Families had to be evacuated to Winnipeg from isolated communities…Cross Lake; Split Lake; York Landing etc.
Some are being returned to their communities this week while others remain in Winnipeg.
Rail way lines were flooded out. There is talk that the tracks will not be replaced. This is the only transportation for many families to get out and shop for food and clothes.
There is a serious need for mitts, hats and knitted slippers. Any assistance from knitters, and or donations of hats, mitts and slippers would be greatly appreciated. Any financial donation would be used to purchase these items or the yarn to knit them. These items will be mailed out on October 27, 2017.
Ladies from Six Nations Parish will accept donations on Fridays from10:00 am -2:00 PM and pack them for shipping. The address is 1631 Chiefswood Road. Ohsweken On.
If you can help or have questions please call (519) 445-4204; (905) 768- 3891
Many Thanks and Blessings to You and yours.
