Guild SGM

I’d try to sum up the insane Knitters Guild Special General Meeting I went to yesterday, but I couldn’t do it any better than Mary-Helen already did. Really, it was just the culmination of the whole drama set in motion at the AGM in March. A harmless but necessary motion got scuppered from the AGM agenda due to bureaucratic bungling (and a missed printer’s deadline), and here we are two months later with continued bad feelings and ill will all around. I sat there in the back of the room knitting away on my sock, wondering (for the millionth time) why in the hell I was wasting my Saturday on such a pointless exercise. And of course, the SGM wasn’t the end of it; I had to stay for the combined Convenor’s and Executive meeting. All up, I spent SIX HOURS of my weekend (a weekend I really needed after a stressful week) sitting in meetings listening to people suck all the fun out of something that is supposed to be a hobby. GAH.

  1. How depressing. Don’t be disheartened though, Kris. Good things grow well in manure.

  2. I agree with Rachel, don’t be disheartened. You are a good person and thank you for giving your time so generously. There are a lot of people out there who truly appreciate what you do.
    Knitting is a great hobby so enjoy every minute of it and ignore the rest of the rubbish.
    There is light at the end of the tunnel and I never thought there would be – M-H’s last paragraph – let’s look forward to that.
