A message from President Sarah W.

(From September 11, 2022)


Hi All

What a month already, first we melt then comes the rain!


I have a couple of requests.  For stitches So Cal I thought we could make patchwork lap blankets instead of scarves for a change, so I am looking or the following -


  • if you have any spare balls of Worsted or thicker yarn   

  • if you have any blanket squares, or swatches you dont want any more

  • We also need items to display (and we may have extra space this year so want plenty to show off!!)

Please bring them to the sit'n'knit or the meeting before Stitches So Cal.  


Best regards

The next Great Yarn Giveaway will be on Saturday November 5, 2022.  Stay tuned for more details soon.

It's finally here!


The ESSS Potluck Favorites Cookbook is now available in a downloadable pdf format.

The cookbook is a collection of recipes that our members bring to our birthday and holiday potlucks.  We decided to compile this coookbook so that we can enjoy the foods we have always loved at our potlucks while we are unable to enjoy our potlucks together.

The Cookbook is available to all of our members even if you were unable to contribute to it.
