A;pril 7, 2016 Program
Thursday, May 5th will be our annual meeting to introduce the new board. At this meeting, we will get to know them (and they will get to know us!). In addition, we will be sharing the survey results and talking about ideas for the coming year. Bring your knitting and plan for a relaxing, laid back evening.
Thursday, June 2nd prepare to be wowed as we welcome a special guest, Charles Gandy. Google the recent (3/9/16) article in Atlanta Magazine "Design Star turned Master Knitter Charles Gandy creates fantastical socks".
One of only two men among the world's 280 Master Knitters, Gandy has risen to the top of his craft, just as he did during a 40-year career as an award-winning interior designer. He now serves on a Knitting Guild Association committee that reviews candidates for certification. His book The Embellished Sock: Knitted Art for the Foot has gained him scores of fans. And this spring, his solo show opens at the Bascom Center for the Visual Arts in Highlands, North Carolina.
He will be treating us to a talk called "Creatively in Fiber: Charles Gandy's Most Current Work". He will show slides of his show at the Bascomb well as his entry into the international world of wearable art competition. Mark your calendars for this opportunity to hear from a local celebrity!
