Penny Sitler March 6th, 2013

You have a huge mistake in your calendar – Noni (Nora Bellows) is teaching along with Michelle Hunter and Arenda Holladay at The Knitting Guild Association Grand Retreat at Grand Hotel, Mackinac Island, MI May 19-21, not May 3-8 at the same location. Please correct this and I’d love it if you could send a message to your email list with the change. Thanks! Penny Sitler, TKGA Executive Director
