Monroe Machine Knitting Seminar

As always, a fantastic time at Monroe Machine Knitters' Seminar in July.   Cathy reports that due to the temporary relocation to another building at Monroe Community College, she was able to accept more registrations this year, and there were 100 machine knitters there this year.  Several were new.

Demonstrators were:
I learned something from each demonstrator.  I did not walk away empty-handed, either.  I won a door prize both days and purchased either a pattern, yarn, or a tool from each demonstrator.

An announcement was made at lunch concerning TKGA's management company deciding to stop the relationship, and the subsequent conversion of TKGA to an all-volunteer organization.  Due to lack of machine-knitting volunteers, machine knitting certification program will be dropped as of the current time.  We were encouraged to join the conversation on Ravelry to offer our support to perhaps influence a differernt decision.
