June 2022 Meeting Annoucement


Saturday, June 11, 1–4 PM

GUEST SPEAKER: Jacob Seifert
editor of Soho Publishing LLC

Jacob Seifert taught himself to knit as a teenager as a joke. He enjoyed it more than
he expected and is stilling knitting almost 20 years later. Currently, he works as an
editor for Sixth&Spring Books, the book division of SOHO Publishing, the publisher of
Vogue Knitting magazine.

Jacob’s presentation will focus on knitting books: everything that goes into creating
them, how they’ve changed over the past decade, and what we can expect to see
from Sixth&Spring Books. He will exhibit some of the best knitting book designs in a
curated trunk show. And attendees receive 10% off on titles at vogueknitting.com.

Show and Tell
Once again, we have live show and tell! All are encouraged to get in line to show off their knitted works. The more, the merrier. Let’s keep the descriptions brief, though, to give everyone a chance.

Guests are Welcome
We are excited to welcome guests at this meeting. As usual, the first visit by a guest is free. Additional visits are $5. This fee may be applied to annual dues if paid on the meeting day. Please remind your guests to bring their vaccine cards and to wear a mask! If you are not a member, consider becoming a member.

BAKG Book Sale Redux
Come early to our amazing April book sale. You’re going to love the offerings. We have current books and magazines to excite your interest as knitters. Most importantly, be on the lookout for our SPECIAL PROMOTION. The sale runs from 12:30-1:15pm and again when the meeting ends. See you there.

No Break-Out Tables
There will be no Charity Knitting, Beginners Circle, or KALs at this meeting. We will have a box for charity knitting drop-off and a box for dropping off BAKG auction donations.
