It's time to start making your Christmas gifts. We all have special friends who love to read books, real books, not apps on their phone!

Sorry, but we will not have October spinning day. Ordinarily we spin on the second or third Saturday of the month. This month Joan will be otherwise occupied those Saturdays, and the other weekends are full of festivals. So, keep spinning and we'll see you in November!

This year we are honored to have so many talented educators in our midst! Our sewing and quilting classes feature Susan Goins, a Master Seamstress who has a lifetime of sewing tips and hints to share AND Becky Johnson, owner of Old Town Fabrics, with her exceptional eye for color and piecing skills. Haven't dusted off that machine in a while? Joan will help you get reacquainted and ready to stitch! Seriously, this is an incredibly fun weekend you don't want to miss!
Needle and Yarn Tasting October 23rd from 4 - 6 pm! We have a greatevening lined up for you! Meet Mike the Cascade Guy and sample the new yarns (along with some tried and true favorites) and learn what makes these yarns special. Try them out on all of the needles and hooks made by Knitters Pride, so you can decide which needles work best with each yarn! Admission is $5.00, which will be applied to any purchase you make that night. In addition, everyone who attends will take home a great door prize. Please make your reservation by October 19, so we can make sure to have enough refreshments for everyone.
We're playing with the time table a bit during October - so many things going on! We will running LATE on October 11, but the doors will open by 11:00 a.m. (rather than the normal 10:00 a.m. opening time). And we will close EARLY on October 13th, and October 27th, so gather your weekend yarn supplies before 3:00 those days. Thanks for your understanding!
Does anyone knit or crochet with VCR tape rather than plarn? One of our friends has a lot of old VCR tapes she would love to give to someone who wants to use them for a recycling craft. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested and we'll hook you up.
Fiber Frenzy has a lovely friend who is quite accomplished in the skill of tatting. She would be willing to teach a class in November on a Tuesday if we have enough people interested in learning this wonderful skill, which is fast becoming obsolete in the crafting world because no one knows how to do it! Call or
email us at email@example.com if you want to participate.
