We have finally connected with the General Manager of the new Columbia Wegman's store. Ms. Webster confirmed that they will have a large eatery on the second floor and we can purchase food, coffee and "our glorious desserts" and take them upstairs. She is happy for us meet at her store and welcomes us with open arms! She has asked us to start meeting in September so that she and her staff have time to get organized and adjust "their patterns". She feels once school goes back in session, the crowds will die down and we will be more comfortable.
In the meantime, we are aware there are those who are not happy in our current venue. We are know that some groups have experimented with returning to our last venue and seem to prefer it. For now and the summer, we suggest folks go to the venue that they feel most comfortable and we regroup in September at our new larger more comfortable space at Wegman's. Knit night is supposed to be something you look forward to and no reason to be uncomfortable. Our first Wegman's meeting will be September 5th.
The official meeting site for newcomers, as posted on meetup, is Jason's and Lynn will continue to go there each week.
Please stay tuned to the Meet-Ups and Meetup emails for announcements on group activities. We still have MD Sheep and Wool and World Wide Knit in Public day planned. We want everyone to attend.
Please feel free to Private message me if you have any questions or comments.
Thanks - Happy Knitting
