Progress

You'll remember in fall of 2012 I attended a symposium which gathered people interested in starting a knit and crochet museum. Much has happened behind the scenes since then. Bylaws were written last year and adopted in early autumn. Then those of us on the board went to work on the 1023 form, which is the form filed with the IRS to obtain 501(c)(3) status. That form was filed earlier this month. Hurray! Now we wait for the IRS to recognize that of course Center for Knit and Crochet is a charitable organization.

Last weekend several members of the CKC board attended Vogue Knitting Live! in New York. I was not amongst them, so I don't have any lovely photographs to share. What I do want to share is that CKC has a new website and is soliciting charter memberships. Memberships are $35 and currently new members receive a CKC tote bag as a thank-you.

The thing I most want to share is the vision. I am so proud of the narrative we submitted in our 1023 filing. Please visit the Our Vision page on the CKC website and see what you think.

How lovely! I'm so glad to see things moving along. Please let me know how I can help (either behind the scenes or up front) as time goes on. After working for non-profits, I have lots of experience!
