All meetings are usually held on the third Thursday of the month. We hold a "meet and greet" beginning at 6:00pm and the meeting begins officially at 6:30pm at Hillside United Methodist Church in the Fellowship Hall at 4474 Towne Lake Parkway, Woodstock GA 30189. When you arrive at NGKG meetings, please be sure to check in and wear your name badge as you enter the meeting. This helps us all to get to know each other, especially with visitors and new members.

Knitting in Europe
Presented by Betty Salpekar, author of Solefull Socks-Knitting from the Ground Up and past President of NGKG
Come along on a trip to explore some European knitting — without ever leaving your chair at the January NGKG meeting! We'll go to Scotland, Ireland, Norway, the Netherlands, and Estonia via photos I've taken in those places of traditional knitting, art knitting in museums, knitted graffiti in public places, and much more. I'll have a few samples of ethnic knitting to pass around, as well as some European books and magazines. I'll finish with a demonstration of a simple knotted cord that I learned from Anu Raud, an Estonian fiber artist, during a lovely workshop sitting on benches under the trees on her talu (farm). Bring along a couple yards of light-colored worsted-weight yarn if you want to try it yourself!
