Paula Rymon, interviewed on 1/19/11, evening meeting.
Q: What is your job or what do you spend your time doing?

Q: How long have you been crocheting?
A: Since 1945, and I was taught both crochet and to knit by my mother when I was about 10. I enjoy and have about the same skill level in both crochet and knit. My mother taught me how to hand wind a center pull ball of yarn when I was young.
Q: What are you enjoying crocheting now?
A: I like small projects because I am slow. Lately I have made several hexagon baby sweaters.

A: I really love the friendships I have made over the years and think about the men and women who have been part of the guild over the years.
Q: What keeps you coming back to guild?
A: I love seeing the ongoing process of change. Each year as our officers change, the direction takes a little different turn, I love to be a part of the camaraderie.
I have knitted and crocheted since 1945, but never was able to do so with another person, not even my mother. I always worked alone.
I have learned so much working with others and from the programs.. more than I ever would have on my own.

Christmas 2010

First off, I want to thank Kelly and Cori for doing an amazing job of putting together this years Christmas party. Then I would also like to thank everyone who helped with the setup and especially the tear down. That’s what a guild is all about and I’m very proud to be a part of KS My Stitch. I hope you enjoy the slide show of pictures. We had such a good time with the White Elephant gift exchange and I think the pictures will show how much. Remember you have to click on the slideshow 2 times in order to see the pictures. See you all soon at the January meeting.
