Mandie Harrington announced that she is teaching dyeing at Hoosier Hills Fiber Festival this summer.
Lana Holden announced that Small Knits Symposium would like to offer Indianapolis Knitting Guild members $15 off a la carte classes at the event, April 25-27th. please email firstname.lastname@example.org or the guild for the promo code.
The February Minutes were voted on and approved.
Carol (Treasurer) reported the guild has $4859. She gave $200 to the church that evening as voted on in February.
The Cat Bordhi event was discussed briefly. Everything is coming together nicely. The event should pay for itself without guild funds. As of right now the Cowl class is full with 2 people waiting, and there are 2 spaces in the sock class. Due to a slight scheduling conflict it was announced that the lecture would be moved from 7 to 7:30 to give the preceding event time to get out of the space.
Barb Bettegnies also announced that she would be talking to Lucy Neatby soon about coming in mid 2015.
Beth announced that the board wants the membership to know that scholarships to events such as these can be made available for members who cannot afford to attend for whatever reason. If you would like to request one for yourself or another member please speak privately to a board member.
Susan gave our guest presentation. She showed a project that will be a knit along at Mass Ave in April, the River Run shawl by Mango Moon, and then she demonstrated arm knitting. She also mentioned Berroco gives a good video tutorial. This is a great use for silk ribbon or other big unusual yarns.
There are several examples of arm knitting on Ravelry here
