Committee/Chair Reports
 
Altruistic – Cathrine McClure:  Cathrine reminded us of our current projects.  Hats and scarves for Esperanza should be wool and natural fibers only.  Navaho items should be washable and are due by the November meeting.  They need sweaters, hats, ponchos and gloves.  Project Linus needs washable blankets, particularly larger sizes.  The North Valley Chapter has asked that we our name on our blanket.
 
Saturday, June 9, is “National Knit-in-Public” week.  Jessica Knits will be at the Paradise Valley Mall from 11:00am to 2:00pm, in the middle of the mall at Center Court, across from Macy’s.  Come on down and knit with them.
 
Stitch & Pitch is Saturday, July 28, at Chase Field.  Francine is contacting Kristen Leetz, the Marketing/Sales Manager for the Diamondbacks, to figure out if CNKG wants to have a free table in a reserved area.  More information will follow about the possibility of a block of seats.
