We had a good crowd in March. 14 attended of which 2 were guests.

Members were: Anne, Alice, Charisse, Liana, Peggy, Eleanor, Sue, Julie, Elaine, Mary, Janet and Joann, the guests were Barb and Kim. We went around the room and introduced ourselves and told a little about our knitting background.
Charisse then called the meeting to order, Liana briefly reviewed last months minutes and Alice gave the treasurer report.

Charisse announced that she is with child and due late August.

We discussed events such as Beth's class and the Fiber Fest at Montgomery Bell the weekend of March 23-25.
