PRESIDENT’S PREFACE

Greetings MKASA Members
The season has turned after that unexpected late heat wave in March. Perhaps I will be inspired to start knitting now that it’s cooler.

The MKASA committee organised and ran another workshop in Adelaide in March this year. The theme was Pushbutton and Punchcard patterning. There was more interest in Punchcard machines, both
Brother and Singer. Feedback I heard was that the workshop went well and participants gained a lot from the one-on-one tutoring. Many thanks to the experienced knitters who came and offered tutoring, and
thanks to Jacqui Newman for taking the bookings and Nicky Fidler for doing the flyer.

The next exciting adventure we have planned is a knitting weekend ‘mini camp’ where you bring your machine, set up and knit your own project. You may then leave it overnight, go and sleep in your own
beds and return on Sunday for more knitting. The venue is St Peters Town Hall and it will be locked overnight. Doors open at 09:00. Bring your own food; tea and coffee provided. There will not be formal
tutoring provided, but helpful experienced knitters may be able to assist less experienced knitters. Information is in this newsletter.

Workshops with Diane Chambers are scheduled for 3rd August in Adelaide and 6th August in Pt Pirie. Information is in this newsletter.

The Melrose Camp at Camp Willochra is booked from
11th to 14th October.
Happy knitting
Jocelyn Meline
