Saturday the 21st, despite the snow, the Sophisticated Stitches club held it’s January 2012 meeting at the 8th Annual Pottstown Knit Out and Crochet Too event held at the Brookside Country Club in Pottstown, PA. Yes it did snowed 1 to 5 inches depending on where in the Delaware Valley you lived. About half our membership attended. That’s impressive, especially on a snowy day.

For the past several years, the event has sold out and had a waiting list. The two hour delay must have inspired approximately 140 of the 200 people who signed up, to show up despite the weather. The knitters and crocheters who attend this event are very dedicated.

Holding the meeting at the event provided advantageous for the Club. The attendees were interested in Jackie Willard’s modular knitting demonstration on the bulky machine. Tammy Noble had a table and sold various knitting items. A former member, Uyvonne Bigham rejoined the club and a current member, Deb Rogers, renewed her membership.

The event featured various knitting and crochet classes, a fashion show, door prizes, free massages, a silent auction, a complimentary breakfast, a buffet lunch plus of course the camaraderie of fellow knitters and crocheters. Three of our members won a book door prize. One of the members who won was me!

Above are some of the photos I took at the event. Enjoy.

The next meeting of the Sophisticated Stitches Club will be February 25, 2012 from 10:00 AM to noon. We will be holding our annual winter party at the meeting. If you are interested in attending one of our meeting, just contact me below.
