Making a Body Double Mannequin with Duct Tape
A dress form can be very handy when it comes to knitting sweaters and tops. In November’s program, learn all about creating a custom, perfectly-sized duct tape dress form. As Kristina and Sandy show the process of making a dress form, the presenters will also briefly discuss garment fit and ease in order to create well-fitting pieces that you will wear again and again.

The November meeting is your last chance to pay for the Holiday Party which will be on December 17th.
We have expanded the menu from Jim ‘N Nick’s this year to include pork, chicken, macaroni and cheese, baked beans, fresh fruit, tossed salad, etc. The cost per person will be $7.00. Everyone attending the party will need to pay in advance, the deadline for payment will be the November guild meeting. If you will not be at the November meeting, you can contact Cindy at 770/789-5804 or Kathy at 678/361-7797 to make arrangements to get your money to us. Anyone who would like to bring a dessert is welcome to, but it is not necessary. Dessert will be provided.
We will not have a gift exchange this year. Instead, we are encouraging everyone to participate in our food drive. We are asking our party attendees to bring nonperishable food items to the party. The items will be donated to the food pantry at Woodstock Community Church.
