Volunteers are still needed! The Guild Librarians and Stash Sale Book Coordinator positions are still open. Also, the Guild is looking for a new News Coordinator/Editor – please contact Kerry Nare at Webmaster@SanDiegoKnitters.com for details. Assistance is also needed throughout the year for various events and activities, some as simple as handling the signup sheets at the back of the room. The San Diego North Coast Knitters Guild runs on volunteers – without membership participation our wonderful Guild cannot survive.
Membership Renewal for 2020 – check here for the latest. A revised form is available – please use the new year form. The 2020 renewal form has a new check box asking members to indicate their willingness to volunteer their time. Reminder – Guild By-Laws allow visitors to Guild meetings, however, “Prospective members may attend two monthly meetings or two sub group meetings as a guest before being required to pay dues.”
New feature! Ravelry Tip of the Month – have a question about using Ravelry? Check here.

Other Events and Items of Interest:
Quilting Enthusiasts – Frequently we receive invites or tickets to quilting events throughout the SoCal region. That is because our Guild is a member of the Southern California Council of Quilt Guilds through which our insurance is obtained. To learn about these quilting events, visit our Ravelry group and check out the thread called “Quilting Enthusiasts”.
February 2020 Guild Meeting – Collections for the 2020 Stash Sale begins! The Guild does not have a place to store your donations over the summer and holidays, so please keep them at home until the February meeting.
The San Diego County Fair will be open June 5 through July 5 (closed on Mondays). Information is now available on the fair’s website.
