Machine Knitters, Southeastern, PA

This blog is now under the domain of Streets Smarts Fiber Arts. The transition from Spring City Knitters Club to Sophisticated Stitches Club and now Streets Smarts Fiber Arts has been quite a journey. Though this blog will undergo many new and exciting changes machine knitting will still be one of the fiber arts featured Look for information on sewing, machine embroidery, hand knitting, and many other fiber arts related subjects.

The new year for the Sophisticated Stitches club began in October 2014.  All of our members are looking forward to the upcoming club year.  Below is the schedule for our meetings at the First United Church of Christ.  Unless otherwise stated all meetings are at the Church.

Our dues remain $25 which is a great deal since there are other clubs in the area whose meeting fees are higher than ours.

We have lots of demonstrations planned for this meeting year as well as fun events.  Everyone is looking forward to our annual winter luncheon.  Instead of having a buffet at the Church, we elected  to go to the Limerick Dinner.  Of course the club will pay for every one's lunch.

Another change this club year is that our January meeting will not be held at the Pottstown Knit Out.  Though many of the members will be attending this event, scheduled for Saturday January 17, 2015 from 10 AM to 4 PM, snow or shine, the event will not be our official meeting place.  The event supports the American Cancer Society, a very worthy cause as most members know someone effected by this terrible disease. By the way, the event is closed for registration.  As usual, the 200 people signed up within two weeks of being notified in early November.  For $40, you get a continental breakfast, lunch, a class and the camaraderie of fellow knitters.

Brookside Country Club

Last club year in September we met in Cape May, NJ at a member's home.  During the visit we went to an alpaca farm.  We had loads of fun on this road trip.  So we elected to have another September outing.  This time we will be going to the Hunterdon County Fairgrounds.

By the way, my email address had changed, so please take note.
