Yarn Swap was fabulous

We had a great time yesterday swapping old yarn for other people's old yarn. And we have tons left for charity knitting. We will be donating some to the Crochet Coral Reef and then to some women's shelters.

Watch the website for the date of a Crochet the Coral Reef put together. We're coordinating that now.

Mark your calendar for Oct 6 & 7th for Brandon Mably's color workshop and Kaffe Fassett's creativity lecture. The color workshop is about creativity, not technique. It is a workshop people take again and again.

Kaffe Fassett's lecture will be an inspiration for all kinds of needlework: knitting, quilting, needlepoint and more. Kaffe will be signing his new book: "Kaffe Knits Again".

Our new class schedule is available online, too.

I'm so excited for the Brandon Mably course. It will be my first class ever, if you can believe it!
