March 21-ESSS General Meeting CANCELLED
KAL-CAL December 2019
Our December theme is Ornaments!
These can also just be tiny toys, if you want to make some for stocking stuffers.
And of course, we would still love to see any Toys you make at the December meeting, also. These two months are sort of fluid and interchangeable.
Be sure to visit the KAL/CAL Nov./Dec. 2019 discussion at our Slipt Stitchers group on Ravelry (direct link to the discussion https://www.ravelry.com/discuss/slipt-stitchers/3977254/1-25#10 ), to share patterns and ideas!

ESSS Survey Says (some information from Lenora about the survey):
We want to hear from everyone and have decided to extend the survey for another month. If you have not yet provided your thoughts, please complete a survey (attached to the Newsletter email or available by clicking here). The survey will also be available at the February Sit N Knit and General
Meeting. This is your guild and your opinion matters as the Board makes plans for the future. More details about the survey in the original post below.
2020 Program Ideas Survey--Lenora S.
As discussed in the December meeting because we had an outside speaker for January we are not able to have a Program planning session. However, we would still like your input and ideas on Programs for the coming year. To make this simple I have devised a survey for you to fill out, click here to go to the survey. Completed survey forms can be emailed or handed in at the next Sit 'n Knit or meeting.
All responses and feedback will be used to help us work out the schedule so please consider helping make this easy by volunteering to lead on of these programs.
