Hey Yarn Junkies!!
Welcome to the Knoxville Knit and Crochet Meetup Group. We plan to have get-togethers every other week to knit, crochet and generally have a good time hanging out and meeting new people.
The goal is to create an inviting and welcoming environment at every event that will be designed to encourage new friendships. While the group continues to thrive and grow, our hope is that our events will remain intimate and welcoming where you will get to know other members beyond casual acquaintance.
Your input, thoughts, and ideas will be essential in making our gatherings fun, interesting and fulfilling. Remember, this is YOUR group. Everyone has a say in this group, so feel free to come to meetings with suggestions, start topics on the message boards, or email the organizer.Basic Membership Guidelines:New Members
- If you're a new member, plan on attending an event ASAP. New members who don't attend something within the first 90 days will automatically be removed from our list (and are welcome to rejoin at another time, when they are more available). If you find that our events are being scheduled when you can't make it, then you can plan your own event at a time that's more convenient for you! Just let me know..and I'll help you get it on the calendar.
A profile picture is also very important because it allows the group members to recognize each other when we meet at the different locations and it is another way of becoming acquainted. This is a private group, therefore, your picture will only be viewed by other members of this group. If you do not have a recent photo, let me know and I will take one at the next event and help you get it posted. I do ask that you post a photo of you and not of a pet or other object.Privacy
- The Group Organizer has set up this group as a "private" one. That means -- non-members can read this page & the "Welcome" page, but only group members can access internal communications, member photos & event details.Your personal info will NOT be posted on-line or published.Events at a members home
- Sometimes events will be held at a members home. For safety reasons, New Members will not be allowed to attend one of these events as their first meet up event. This means that you will have to come to another event (a public event, not held in a home) before being allowed to attend. If you sign up for an event at a members home, and the Organizers have never met you, your RSVP will be changed.Message boards
- This is a great communication tool. Please stop by and check it out when you sign in to your account. It is the best way to communicate with out filling up everyone's email account. Post a message, say hello; ask advice - whatever you want. Don't worry -- only members of this group will be able to read the message board.ABOUT RSVP'ing:
We REALLY appreciate it when people RSVP "Yes" or "No" for events. I use this information to prepare the event and to gauge interest. If you sign-up as a "Yes", PLEASE FOLLOW THROUGH AND SHOW UP!!!! We don't want to stand around waiting for someone that's not going to show.
Sometimes last minute emergencies do happen...and we understand this fully. However, repeated no-shows (those that RSVP "yes" but don't show up) will result in loss of membership.Please feel free to email me (Telana) with any questions about the group!
