Many thanks to all who contributed, supported, and attended the KnitMaine-ia fashion show last Saturday. The little mermaids were adorable, and the Fair Isle sweaters were impressive. With the silent auction we raised around $1,191 for New Hope for Women. Thanks for your generosity! A special shout out to Peter Walker for hanging all of the afghans, and staying to take them down. If you have knitwear that you contributed, you will find it upstairs in the room next to the nursery.  
Donations are still being accepted. Parishioners can make checks payable to the Women of St. Margaret’s with New Hope in the subject line. In addition, we will have DVDs of the show available for $10.  


Come celebrate local knit and crochet artistry modeled on the runway, hear live musicians Splendid Ibis, bid on hand-knit shawls at our silent auction, win a door prize, sip cider and savor delicacies at the reception to follow. Watch out for mermaids and octopi! This year’s theme: Sea Creatures.

Sea Creatures coming to the Boathouse!
The KnitMaine-ia Fashion Show is planning ahead for their 8th annual event to raise money for New Hope for Women in October. Though all submissions are accepted to be modeled for the event, this year the theme is Sea Creatures. Think mermaids, lobsters, whales, sea anemones…..Consider knitting or crocheting a project that represents this uniquely local theme. The submission deadline is Sept. 29th for the October 14th show.
