Early June 2013 – Worldwide Knit in Public and a Chris Bylsma Teaser!

I hope you enjoyed Worldwide Knit in Public Day, held Saturday, June 8.  Did you go and knit in public?  Worldwide Knit in Public events have extended from just a single day to carry through the whole week, so be sure to grab your needles and hit a nearby coffee shop, the mall or a local coffee shop for some knitting in public!

If you did knit in public, please feel free to upload your pictures on our Facebook Group, or share your projects to our Ravelry Group!

*** Edited to add *** The Dallas Handknitters Guild Board will meet telephonically on Thursday, June 13, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. If you are interested in attending the board meeting, please contact me at rsbdhkg (at) gmail (dot) com. Thanks!

Knitting Related Volunteer Opportunity

We have received a request for knitting teachers:

My name is Keara Williams and I work for Urban League of Greater Dallas, a non-profit organization and I am reaching out for your help (if you are available).  I  am placed at an apartment complex (Rosemont@Sierra Vista) as an Activity Coordinator and we recently conducted a survey to see what events I can hold here on site that will bring the residents out to participate.  Well most people wanted to do hands on activities like knitting, sewing, art & crafts.  So I would like to know is there any possible way that someone from your place of business could come to my site and hold a knitting class for the residents that reside here?  I look forward to your response also any suggestions you may have.

Thank you,
