|SMKG OCTOBER 2017 MEETING!!! Our next meeting will be held on Sunday, October 8, 2017 in the Fellowship Hall of the First Presbyterian Church, 305 North Main Street, Waynesville, NC. Doors will open at 2:00 p.m., and the meeting will start at 2:15. This meeting will be your opportunity to try brand name knitting needles. You will be able to personally Knit with Addi's, Square, Karbonz, Knit Picks, Chiao Goo, Knitter's Pride; and some specialty needles will be represented. You will have time to personally knit with each needle and give an evaluation as to which are your favorite ones. Also, if you are in the market to purchase a set of interchangeable needles, there will be needles for sale at the meeting. We are asking that for this meeting you leave your knitting at home or in the car during the meeting as you will be moving from table to table to knit with each needle.|
