Ready to flip the calendar and look ahead? Grab your red Sharpie and make a big circle around September 18 on your calendar - that's World Wide Spin in Public Day!
Instead of meeting at the Little Red Barn on that Third Saturday, we'll converge on Collin Creek Mall (811 N. Central Expressway) and set up a spinning and knitting circle on the lower level by the fountains. It's convenient, has good traffic, and they have all kinds of stuff to eat at the food court upstairs. In addition to educating the public about all things fiber, we'll have every convenience at our fingertips.
I plan to bring some CD spindles and extra fiber, in case we intrigue folks enough to give it a go. Bring a folding chair, your wheel and fiber, (knitting and crochet projects are welcome, too) and some cash to spend, as a thank you to our hosts.
Next, mark Saturday, September 25 from 10 - noon for Ellie Ivanova's amazing Holga Workshop. All the details are here, and more info here. There's still room for a few more folks to register. Send a check for $25 made out to Ellie to: Jacob's Reward Farm, 4308 Church Lane, Parker, TX 75002 to hold your spot. You can also bring it with you when you come, but please e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know you're planning to attend.
Those who just need a good spinning day on the 25th are welcome to hang out in the LRB and drink coffee and knit/spin to their hearts' content.
I know it's still a little warm out, but fall is riding over the ridge, and will be here before we know it.
