July 28, 2014 - meeting notes

As part of our regular summer season, the Kniterary Nights played host to the first of two summer movies. Dolly Parton, Lilly Tomlin and Jane Fonda, along with Dabney Coleman entertained us to no end in 9 to 5. Such a great classic 80s movie and kudos to those who caught the knitting reference!

Next month, we will enjoy a Rat Pack favourite with Robin and the Seven Hoods. Enjoy this trailer as a sneak peak tease!

June 30, 2014 - meeting notes

With summer fast approaching we had one last night of regular Kniterary before our movies night of summer. Our Pass-It-On project is going strong, but Lou was not in attendance, so we'll have to wait for next month to see her contribution. In the meantime, we learned exactly what Zentangle is!

Zentangle Drawing

Anne Gallant joined us tonight for a fabulous introduction to Zentangle Drawing, a relaxing and focusing way to expand your creativity and create beautiful pieces of art at the same time.

Anne gave us a wonderful talk about the why's and how's of Zentangle, then walked us all through the steps of creating our own pieces.

Appealing to both sides of the brain, Zentangle has easy-to-follows rules and steps, while allowing your hand to lead you into a level of creativity vastly different from knitting.

Lynn brought along Dean last night, who has some experience with Zentangle. They both showed off their skills, along with some other Kniterary members.

Summer Movie Nights

We look forward to seeing everyone for our summer movie Nights!

July will be the 80's classic, 9 to 5, starring Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda and Lilly Tomlin, while August will dig even further back to the 60's Rat Pack classic, Robin and the Seven Hoods, starring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr and Barbara Rush.

See you there!
