Holiday Schedule

Posted by lancspinweaveguild@yahoo.com on November 9, 2015 at 9:55 PM

We will not have a Program Meeting in November, due to Thanksgiving. 

Instead, we will have our Annual Holiday Tea on Thursday December 10th at 7:00. The Executive Committee will provide tea sandwiches and other goodies. Please feel free to bring one of your favorite holiday treats!

 

  • Bring a small fiber-related gift preferably ($10) stapled in a brown paper bag, along with a canned good item to donate to the Food Bank. We will play “Now you have it, now you don’t”
  • We will also be having a Tea Cozy Competition during the Holiday Tea, so get your knitting needles out!

 


Tea Cozy Competition

Whether you spell it cosy or cozy, every teapot deserves its own cover. You need to keep the tea at the perfect temperature as long as possible. There is nothing worse than a naked teapots sitting around, so brew a pot (or at least a teabag) of your favorite tea and create the perfect (or nearly perfect) tea cosy.

Knitters, crocheters, weavers, spinners, quilters, all fiber arts are invited to the competition.

The five categories are: (YOU decide the category you want to enter- can be more than one!)

 Most Whimsical

 Most Surprising

 Most Original

 Most Traditional

 Guild Membership Favorite

Prizes will be awarded. Judges will be impartial (maybe). Enter as many tea cozies as you care to make, however, entrants may win in no more than two categories.

For ideas to get you started, http://cosytea.wordpress.com/free-tea-cosy-knitting-patterns/. Ravelry is also a great resource

Cosies must be completed and given to PJ Johnson by the December meeting. Winners will be announced and prizes awarded that evening.
