We each are working hard to make a group call the "Fiber Circle". I got a news breif put in the local paper and got us a really great, FREE, community room at the bank. I put together a bunch of stuff to take as samples. From Crochet and Knit to Knook. Karen and I even plan to take our spinning wheels. Karen, got it announced on a local Radio program and she is bringing the cookies. Unfortunatley the only day we could get on a Friday this month was the 29th. We have to have it on Friday because that is the only after noon Karen has off and we can't find any other time when all three of us will be available. I know that most the people reading this will have no idea that SSK is going on this week ... LOL That means Stacy will have to be in Nashville with her booth. (She really must look in to cloning herself ... Oh and maybe me ... I would get mroe done!) With no other choice we will go ahead and do a meet and greet as planned and we will have Stacy in our hearts and she will be there next time. When she gets back she said that she would be happy to teach knitting if anyone needs help and she also said she would have "field trips" to her house to show the art of dying.
If anyone has any other great ideas for our little group please let us know. Right now we are just doing a come and go meet and greet from 3-6 one Friday afternoon a month. There will be cookies (Karen promises homemade) as snack and we hope alot of chit chat. I know it sounds weird and that most places already have a group of some kind and it is really an old idea but you have to remember our community is a bunch of small towns with populations in the 100s stretched over miles of highway. And you better forget about even thinking you can reach a LYS without at least an hours drive. Kind of takes the L out of LYS huh??The only chain stores here are grocery stores and we get by, shopping mostly at Wal-Mart simply because it is the only store here. A Fiber Artist Group is something very new here and the three of us are hoping it all works out. So please post your ideas and keep your fingers crossed and your prayers said.
