Gathering Threads

This weekend the London chapter of the Canadian Embroiderers' Guild will be holding Gathering Threads event. It starts today, May 12th and runs until May 15 at a few locations throughout London. Please see the link for more details.

Don't be confused by the embroidery creators of this event, it truly is a fiber and textile event. There will be rughookers, tatters, smockers, quilters, binders and the Forest City Knitters will be participating this year too! Please stop by and say Hi,  Corazenia & myself there this Saturday between 1 and 5.

Forest City Knitters, aka FCK

Greetings one and all! There are still many groups that meet regularly around London Ontario, one that has been doing so for many years is the Forest City Knit Club. This group has been around in excess of 14 years and is currently trying to grow in membership, diversity and expanding their offerings.

Please check out their web space at 

Some quick details:
Monthly meetings during fall, winter and spring on the 3rd Tuesday of the month.
Small membership fee but you are welcome to check it out before signing up.
Ample parking available
Opportunity to learn & share in a group setting - there's lots of laughter here!

Did you know that some retailers offer a discount with a guild or group membership? FCK does provide a membership card that you can use for this purpose!

The May 2011 meeting will be featuring Joan from the Little Red Mitten!

I have been a member of this group for several years and although I don't always make it to the meetings the meetings always feel like coming home. For more information please click on the link above and go to the groups Wiki space. I hope you can join us!
