A Whirlwind Week!

It’s been a whirlwind week at SWAK!

Halloween Chamber Coffee
We kicked off the festivities on Halloween, hosting business and community leaders for a Chamber of Commerce coffee. We served mini-frittatas, muffins, sausage balls, mini-parfaits, and mimosas. It was a wonderful opportunity to spotlight not only who we are, but who YOU are. Despite the progress we’ve made over the years, there are still the stigmas attached to those who knit and crochet. I think everyone who attended left with a fresh perspective!

Trick-or-Treat and Tiny Toppers
I am happy to report that our Tiny Toppers program was a huge success. We handed out 735 hats during the annual downtown trick-or-treat. Everyone was quite surprised, and very thankful. We already have plans in the works to make next year’s event bigger and better! A huge thank you to all who took their time to make the hats. A lot of love and gratitude was expressed by the recipients.

A Weekend with Sally Melville
The following day, Sally Melville arrived from Canada for our Guthrie Getaway. It was a fabulous weekend filled with inspirational workshops and wisdom from this legendary designer and instructor, along with fun camaraderie and good eats. We served everything from beef tenderloin to crème brûlèe!

If you missed out, you will really be sad to hear that Sally Melville is retiring. She only has two more engagements left on her schedule. We have had the honor of hosting Sally many times over the years, and wish her the very best.
This will also be our last Guthrie Getaway. I want to thank all of those who have faithfully attended over the years. These truly have been magical weekends! I have come to the decision that is time to do something different. Several exciting ideas are up my sleeve, that I will share once everything comes together.

There’s no rest for the weary! Wool & Wine is only 9 days away, and only two spots remain. We are sold out of all the colors except pinecone. If brown’s your shade, come and join us!
And fortunately I did manage to escape to Mexico a few weeks ago for a much needed vacation!
But now the countdown begins for the 24 Days of SWAK! Are you ready for the fun?
