New Knitting Study Group!

Posted by on Mar 29, 2015 in News

The Jock Knitting Study Group is open to knitters of all experience levels and meets the 1st Thursdays of each month from 1:00 to 3:00 at the office of Great Notion Support Services, 8 East 1st Avenue, #102, Denver (corner of 1st and Broadway), and after the monthly RMWG the 3rd Saturday of the month. Our goal is to assist, encourage and challenge one another while exploring different styles of knitting. We anticipate concentrating on knitting lace in the first instance, and will take up other topics as chosen by the membership. Email knitting@rmweaversguild.org to join or for more information.

2015-2016 Programs & Workshops

Posted by on Mar 27, 2015 in News

Our Education Coordinator-Elect, Sandra Clark, has prepared a terrific schedule of programs and workshops for next year! Check it out on the Programs & Workshops link in the right-side menu, or just click here.

Registration for the fall workshops is open. Choose your favorite(s) and send a registration form and check to the address on the form to save your place. Do not pay the materials fee–that goes directly to the workshop presenter at the time of the workshop.

There are still a few spaces in Marcia Kosmerchock’s workshop in September–this was rescheduled from last September, and those who were registered before got the first chance to register again. Now it’s open to all guild members! Workshops by Wendy Garrity and Anne Bossert sound great too.
