ALANA DAKOS!!!: SMKG was thrilled to have California knit-wear designer, Alana Dakos, as our guest speaker at our April 2017 meeting. We enjoyed her talk about how she became a designer along with a fashion show of her gorgeous knits and some shopping, too!
KVETA SHAWL KAL: Our first Knit Along for 2017 was lots of fun. The Kveta shawl had an interesting construction in which the fringe was not added at the end but unraveled from the knitting!

2016 ANNUAL HOLIDAY PARTY: SMKG ushered in the holiday season with lots of sweet treats, wonderful live piano music, and great friends!

SHOP HOP 2016: Guild members enjoyed a picture-perfect spring day on April 16, 2016, enjoying western NC in a luxury tour bus, visiting three yarn shops, and feasting at a delicious Chinese buffet. The bus was filled with happy knitters and lots of new yarn purchases!

FALL 2016 CHARITY KNIT: Needles were clicking away in 2016 for our charity knit projects. 52 headbands were made for Operation Christmas Child. 86 hats, 15 scarves, and 17 fingerless mitts/gloves were made for the children in need at Waynesville Middle School.

APPALACHIAN LIFESTYLE FAIR 2016: SMKG's booth was a big success with many people stopping by to talk "knitting," pick up a brochure, sign up for "Learn to Knit," and marvel at some of our members' gorgeous knits. Our Waynesville Music Men also were yarn bombed by guild members!
