Greetings once more, Happy Fiberholics!
There are several fun events coming up in the next few months and I wanted to let you know about them.
April 12-15th: First Annual Los Angeles County Yarn Crawl: There are 26 stores in LA county that are participating in this and there will be lots of special activities as well as prizes, drawings, a Saturday night meet up and a stitch marker swap. Some of us are planning to meet at the shop early Saturday morning and drive down together to hit as many shops as we can Saturday, maybe stay overnight in the Glendale area, attend the meet up Saturday evening, then pile back in the car Sunday and finish up by shopping some more on Sunday. Thank you so much to Lisa for offering to drive! For details check here or call the shop. We would luv to have you along!
June 9th Kicks Off World Wide Knit in Public Week: This has been an annual event for since 2005 and you can read more about it here. In the past the local meeting place has been the Marketplace, but we decided that this year we would organize an alternate meet up at the Mill Creek Park downtown on Saturday June 9th from 10AM til about 4PM. This park has been refurbished in the last few years and offers a beautiful setting rather reminiscent of San Antonio's River Walk.
There are a number of yummy places to eat nearby and we are holding a raffle for fun prizes such as hand spun yarn, hand dyed yarn and fiber, glass knitting needles/crochet hooks, hand made stitch markers, lessons, kits and a special painting by local artist The Poet with all of the proceeds going to the SPCA and/or other local animal charities. I should have all of the prizes on display by the end of next month for your viewing pleasure and you will be able to designate your raffle tickets to specific prizes. Tickets will be $2 each or 12 for $10. We'll have other fun things happening that day so stay tuned for details!
