Crochet or Knit Knockers Join us the first and third Thursday every month, 3 to 5 pm to make knockers.   Supplies are available at a discount.  Susan and Judy will gladly help you start your first knit or crochet knocker.   September 1st, and 15th, 3 to 5 pm.  

We have been surprised by the overwhelming demand for knockers, and encourage all of you who have a little extra time and a desire to do something good to join us in this worthwhile endeavor. Patty Boyce and Susan Hopkins are the leaders of our little group, and they are literally working overtime to try to meet the demand for knockers. 
Spinners!

Spinners! Drop in with your Drop Spindle (or wheel or supported spindle)  September 10 and 24, 3:00 - 5:00 to spin with friends. You'll have great fun, make a new friend, and gather collective wisdom from others who share your passion.  

 


Therapy
September 20th, (3rd Tuesday)
5 to 7 pm

Everyone needs fiber therapy, so bring your current project or start a new one. Feel free to bring snacks and we will just kick back and eat, laugh, have a good time, and hopefully do a little knitting and/or crocheting.  You will be amazed at how much fun you can have at "Therapy."


This is also a great time to get started on a pair of knitted knockers. 

If you are in need of more "Therapy," please drop in any Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday afternoon and knit or crochet with us.  Friends are always welcome. 


Pins & Needles Retreat 2017

Registration is now open for the retreat.  There is a slight difference in materials fees because we are offering 2 classes for free, (Spin Cycle with Amanda and Tech Know How with Teresa), but the paypal programming site would not allow a free class.  Therefore, those classes show a $1 charge for registration.  Anyone who registers for a free class and pays the $1 will get a $1 credit off of a purchase at Fiber Frenzy during retreat weekend. 

 
January 27 - 29, 2017 
Boone Tavern Hotel in Berea, Kentucky
