Knit Out News
A Note from CCK about the D.C. Knit-Out and Crochet 2003
Dear Guild Members:
The Knit Out and Crochet 2003 is just around the corner. It will be
held on Sunday, September 21, 2003 from noon to 5:00 p.m. on the
National Mall next to the Museum of Natural History (between 10th and
11th Streets). The closest Metro station is Smithsonian.
An afternoon of fun-filled, family-friendly activities is planned for
the event. As in the previous Knit-Out & Crochet events, there will be
several tents dedicated to fashion shows (from the guilds, from the
shops, and from the industry), knit and crochet instruction (for adults
and children), knit and crochet doctors (to troubleshoot problems),
charity knitting and crochet, door prizes, and exhibits from local yarn
shops and stores. We are also planning to include demonstrations of
interesting techniques (e.g., team knitting, spinning, etc.), which
were so popular at last year’s event.
We are very excited about this year’s festivities, and need your help
in ensuring that the D.C. Knit Out and Crochet 2003 is an unqualified
success. We need volunteers to assist us with the following activities:
• Distribute flyers in your neighborhood, town, county
• Contribute your hand-knit or -crochet garments for the “from the
guilds fashion show”
• Volunteer on the day of the event: Assist with logistics (set-up,
clean-up), teach knitting or crocheting; take photographs, etc.
• Donate charity items for adults or children
• Help make charity blankets by team knitting and joining ‘squares’
• Bring or wear your hand-made items for a “show and share”
Please let us know what you might want to help with. To volunteer or
for additional information, contact your guild president or Capital
Crocheters and Knitters at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-530-5821.
All necessary forms including those for fashion show entries, and event
day volunteering are available in PDF format at www.knit-out.org.
We look forward to having you join us in making 2003 a spectacular
