1. Michelle Bernal announced that the Knit for the Cure is scheduled for Sunday, February 25. It is held at the Rose Bowl during the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. JCK has been asked to help sell handmade scarves and hats, and the proceeds go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation to support research. This will be the third year we have participated, and it is a fun time. In the past years they have collected around $3000 from the sales. We will be needed from 7:00 a.m. until noon, to set up, sell, and clean up. A sign-up sheet was passed around for those interested in helping, and a carpool will leave from Needle in a Haystack parking lot. Last year so many hats and scarves were donated that we dont need to make any more for this year. 2. Michelle Tang announced that one of her friends is collecting 580 small items to take to children in orphanages in China. These children are primarily girls and are from infant through age 12. They can use small knitted/crocheted blankets(12 X 18), small knitted/crocheted dolls or animals, hair scrunchies or barrettes(not white), etc., but no clothes, please. A favorite color is red. Michelle will collect these at the March meeting. F. Program 1. Judy Gregory recently completed Level 2 of the TKGA Master Knitter program. Congratulations, Judy!! She brought her books to show us and provided information about the program. It is a home study course that each person does at her own pace. The judges are very strict, but the program provides excellent practice and experience and is a great learning situation.
