NYNCS August General Meeting

This month will be our social meeting for the society! Come and mingle as we discuss history, have tea, and even learn to knit! This month our member Catherine Strachan will be giving a Knit 101 lesson for anyone with a yearning to learn.

Catherine has been knitting for several years now and if there’s anything she loves more it’s teaching others to knit! For a beginners course she will be teaching how to cast on, cast off, and two must-have stitches for your making needs.

This is a Bring Your Own Needle Event, however limited supplies will be available for use.

Tea and various snacks will be served at the meeting.

    I'm looking to line up a lecture on Stone carving and have a lead for that. Someone who has given lectures and demos. He responded that he could also do a hands on event where people get to use the tools and work on something themselves. That group would be smaller.
    Any opinions on which we would prefer and how many might show up for either a demo or hands on?

    Another one I'm working on is a tour, lecture, and demonstration on glass making and glass blowing at Urban Glass in Brooklyn (647 fulton st.) in what was once the Strand Theatre. This place has classes on glasswork. The education director thought an event might be 2 hours, maybe a bit more.

    I am very excited about this! This is my first steampunk event though I have always adored the steampunk culture! Ate costumes required for this event? Is there an admission fee?

      Lina -
      I think I've only come to one meeting in anything that would be considered 19th Century in style. But it is really great when someone shows up in period garb, even if we are just there to discuss past and future events and toss around ideas.

    I can't come. But how I'd like to take advantage of this opportunity! I remember when Theatre 80 used to show old double bills for $6. The last movies I saw there were "Fitzcarraldo" and "Nosferatu the Vampyre" the 1979 color version with Klaus Kinski and Bruno Ganz. Then it became a theatre housing the Pearl Company until they moved uptown to City Center. It then served as a temporary home for short runs of Noche Flamenca and the occasional avant garde production. Now it's a movie theater again. How delightful. I wish I could come but some other time perhaps.
