Year 7?! It’s hard to believe we are entering this year with six wonderful years of photos and memories! We are very pleased to announce the KnitMaine-ia Fashion Show 2016 theme; the four seasons. And in case you missed our other fabulous shows, please check out the photos on our Facebook page. We are also hoping to have a mini summer show, so stay tuned for more details of that event. Happy knitting to all!
