Best of all at our market place, Dottie Custer of Oley Valley Knits, will be a participant. Those of you in the Philadelphia area may attended the Oley Valley Knits seminars in past years. Don't know about you but I had fun and learned a lot from her seminars.

Again, the Spring City Knitters/Machine Knitters Guild of PA Seminar will be Friday and Saturday, June 6 & 7, 2008 at the First United Church of Christ, 145 Chestnut St, Spring City, PA 19475.

The theme of the Seminar will be "The Garment". there will be moring and afternoon sessions that are approximately 2-1/2 hours long. We will have a lab set up so that the attendees can strengthen the knitting techniquest they just learned at the Seminar. Passap, Brother, and Silver Reed knitting machines will be represented.

We highly encourage anyone who plans to attend the Design-A-Knit classes to bring their laptops with DAK pre-installed. The presence of your laptop will ensure you get the greatest amount of learning from the DAK sessions.

Finally, Deborah Rogers, President of the Machine Knitting Guild of PA will be our mistress of ceremonies for the Seminar and Fashion Show.
