March Stitch In Meeting

The Mint Hill Stitch In Meetings are now being held once a month on the second Tuesday of every month due to programming restructuring at the library. Some of the ladies asked if they could still meet on the last Tuesday of the month and their request was approved. They just love to stitch together. This day is now referred to as the "Unofficial Day" of Stitch In. Shelia or Neily won't be present on that last Tuesday of the month.

Our community room was nearly full to capacity with ladies of different ages. It's exciting to see the group grow each month and also see young girls participating. Thank everyone for the delicious refreshments. Shelia gave everyone a St. Patrick's card with a coupon to be used at the Yarn Cottage in Mint Hill. I've already used mine to buy size three double points since I lost two needles here at the Library. What a mystery; I still have not found them.

We continued to receive baby and preemie caps which were delivered to the Matthews Presbyterian Hospital. The total number or caps knitted/crocheted totaled fifty five. A big thanks to all who contributed.

Shelia announced the yarn swap which will take place on Tuesday April 10. She will make suggestions of what to do with leftover yarn. I am guilty of accumulating yarn which I purchase on sale and end up not using. This can become a problem since yarn does take lots of room so I'm trying to do better in this area.
