August 2019 Guild General Meeting

Tuesday, August 6 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

International Back to Back Wool Challenge

It is all about promoting wool worldwide and raising funds for cancer research. An eight-member team of hand knitters, spinners and one shearer (one sheep included) practice throughout the year. They shear the sheep, spin the wool and then knit a sweater – all in the same day. The goal is to beat the previous time. In 2015 the record was 8 hours 9 minutes 5 seconds. Did they beat that time in 2019? Come to the August meeting and learn about this amazing group of women.

Learn more about San Diego County Spinners and this challenging event.

Doors open at 12:15 pm. Presentation begins at 12:30 pm. Afterwards, there will be a business meeting followed by Show and Share. Bring your finished knitted items to show to all. Download a Show and Share Form and complete it at home where you have all the information.

FOOD RESTRICTION REMINDER:  Please observe the rules of Temple Solel, a kosher facility.
*No meat, which includes chicken, beef and pork.
