I recently joined a Meetup group for knitters in Dayton and the organizer left and I'm considering becoming the organizer...but only if there's some interest, ya know? I'd open it up to all crafters and we'd meet somewhere convenient (a bookstore or coffeeshop that is central to all) Let me know if you're interested!
I live a knitting life, everything else is secondary. "Want to go out for a drink?" "Nope, sorry, I have a project at home that I'm close to finishing."

I would be interested, if it was on weekends or Wednesdays

Also I was going to post if anyone wanted to join in on making hats for a local organization that donates to local hospitals, for premies?

I am just learning to knit, I could use the support Tongue
I also do other crafting if your opening it up to that too.

Swap it like it's HOT...I do personal swaps.

The students of AnimalOutreach work on projects to help local stray animals at the Humane Society and SICSA.   In February, we raised money, provided information, and collected donated items for the Humane Society of Montgomery County.


Our June event is a Dog Wash and Blessing of the Animals for SICSA (Society for the Improvement of the Conditions of Stray Animals)-a local shelter that does not euthanize animals.  Our club has worked with Oak Creek United Church of Christ in Kettering to raise over $1700.00 for SICSA during the past three years, and we hope to donate even more to help the animals this year.


On Saturday June 7th we will be offering both a dog wash and blessing of the animals.  In the past, we have had many animals that simply came for the blessing, those ranging from young to old, healthy to very ill.  Other dogs came to be groomed and washed.  Students from CHS brushed, washed, dried, and re-brushed dogs in exchange for a donation to the shelter. 


In addition to events for the animals, we will have activities for kids, food, and live entertainment.  SICSA is also working to have some dogs on site and pictures of animals ready for adoption.  We hope that this carnival atmosphere helps bring awareness to the community.  We invite you to come and set up a "booth" to promote your business or sell your creations.  This is a great opportunity to advertise and reach out to the public for


Kennels/Pet Boarding

Veterinary Clinics


Pet Grooming and Rehabilitation Services



There is NO cost to you for participation in this event!  We really want to help create a family oriented atmosphere, and your presence would help to achieve that end.  We cannot provide any materials such as tables, chairs or a tent, but you are welcome to set up your artwork, hand out business cards, and sell items.  You will have a captive audience of animal lovers for the afternoon.


For planning purposes, we would need to know about your participation June 1st so that we can continue efforts to prepare for the event.  The Dog Wash opens at noon and closes at 4:00 PM.  You are welcome to arrive and begin setting up as early as 10:00 AM.
