Knitting in the Park & Yarn Swap!

Knitting in the Park & Yarn Swap!

BAKG_small logo (2).png

When: Saturday, November 21, 2020 at 10 AM to 2 PM

Where: John Chesnut Park 2200 E Lake Road S Palm Harbor, Fl Shelter 10

Come join us; we can’t wait to see you!  We have our regular shelter to ourselves, but we will be sitting out on the lawn so we can social distance, so please bring a lawn chair so you can join us out under the trees.

 Food!  Very important… we will NOT be doing our usual pot luck style lunch, so please bring your own food & drink if you plan to eat while we’re there.

 Yarn Swap Guidelines:  please remember, only 1 skein & 1 other gift item.  The total value should be $30.00.  Please put you yarn & gift in a clear, zip lock bag and we ask that the bags not be opened during the swap, fewer cooties that way 😉.  The yarn should be at least 75% natural fiber.  If you have a Sharpie, please write the fiber content on the outside of the bag.

September Meeting

September Meeting

We will NOT be having a regular Bay Area Knitting Guild meeting in September.

There will be some opportunities to get together with other Bay Area Knitting Guild members in the Tampa Bay area and beyond.

We will be accepting Knitted Knockers at either of these events. If you cannot make it to one of these events but have some Knitted Knockers for our charity this quarter, please send an email to the guild so we can schedule a pick up.

Fiber In-

Several members of the Bay Area Knitting Guild (BAKG) will be heading to Fiber In from September 16-18 at the Clarion Inn Orlando Airport. The event starts around 6pm on Friday and runs until about Noon on Sunday. If you can only make it for one day, Saturday is the day to go. This event is very loosely organized (by just a few volunteers!), so everything is always subject to change!

The tentative demo schedule for Saturday:

Saturday 9/17/2016:

9 AM: sunshineknitter Rebecca- spinning silk hankies
10 AM: ginger supported spindles/cotton on the wheel
11 AM: djmars Mara- chain ply and spinning fractal yarns
2 PM: fourpurls Laura- garter tab cast on and more
3 PM: FiberFanaticsRUs Jody- ply on the fly

There are lots of other fun and exciting events like the Auction (Saturday), Garage Sale (Sunday Morning), and Bake Sale (proceeds go to the Jennifer Nolletti Art Foundation) just to name a few.

Please check out the Fiber In website and the Fiber In group on Ravelry for more information. Here is some great information on “What Should I Bring?” (change the bit about Norse mythology to information about the Olympics because we are “traveling” to Brazil this year) and here is a FAQs page.

We will also be having a 5th Thursday Yarn Swap on September 29, 2016 at 6pm.
