Annual fashion show takes knitting to another level

Written by 

Every category of knitted items imaginable will be represented at The Smoky Mountain Knitting Guild’s  2nd Annual Benefit Fashion Show — including socks, mittens, menswear, baby clothes, skirts, sweaters, hats, handbags, children’s wear and more. This year’s benefit — with the theme of “Four Seasons” —will feature an array of fashions for all year long.

This gala event, including a luncheon, will take place at 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 21, at The Gateway Club in Waynesville. Proceeds from the fashion show and luncheon will benefit HRMC Hospice and Palliative Care.

Members of the Smoky Mountain Knitting Guild, as well as yarn shops and knitters from Franklin, Sylva, Canton, and Asheville, will contribute the hand-knit fashions, the models and the moxie. HRMC and Hospice personnel may also be corralled as models.

With more than 100 members and still growing, the Guild also hosts small weekly knitting circles and offers organized classes. It meets on the second Sunday of each month at 2 p.m. in the new fellowship hall at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, 234 Church St., Waynesville. Guild members’ handiwork can also be seen during the month of July in the Haywood St. entrance display window of the Waynesville Branch Public Library.

Tickets for the annual sale are available from Blue Ridge Books, The Laughing Lamb Antiques (Frog Level) and HRMC Hospital Gift Shop or from any of the Guild members. Tables for eight may be reserved with the group purchase of 8 tickets.  Contact Barbara Mancini at 828.627.9784. To learn more about the Guild, visit SMKGuild.com or call Kristi Siplon at 828.550.3136. There are no dues or fees associated with the knitters’ circles, and the cost of membership in The Guild is nominal.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceMary Harper was quite possibly the first real friend I made when I moved to Western North Carolina.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
