Guild life

I learned to crochet when I was 9. My grandmother taught me, but not in one of those bonding Hallmark across the generations moment. It was a sweatshop, rap my little hands with a crochet hook summer. Needless to say, I didn't take it up as a hobby. About 8 years ago, I took up knitting. When I first bought a Vogue Knitting magazine, I saw an advertisement for a knitting cruise. It read, in Alaska there is sunlight 20 hours a day for your around the clock knitting. I couldn't believe anyone could be so hardcore. Now, I am waiting for the time a year when Alaska has 23 hours of sunlight.

I belong to a TKGA guild and for the most part they are lovely ladies. A couple of them, I even worship their skill. However, they can at times be not the most adventurous (see hence, how this blog is very anonymous...not that many of them know how to use the computer) I am trying to schedule for our yearly workshop. They are tired of the local teachers, but to get someone from another part of the country, requires a 2 day workshop. TWO DAYS??? Oh dear oh dear. They can barely do the 6 hours before they get antsy. So I have to find another guild to co-sponsor it, but I dont know how keen another guild will be to have a Friday or Sunday workshop. So there lies the dilema. Part of me hopes that I will line up something so killer they will be dying to do 2 days or at the very least another guild will love the instructor, part of me dreads lining it up just have the guild kill joys rip it to shreads.
