At our last meeting I learned that Phyllis Schiwal died in April. Phyllis joined the NeedleNerds about a year and a half ago. She was a nice addition to the group and we’ll miss seeing her. You can read her obituary here.
When? Thursday, May 24th, at 2:30 pm
Where? Coffee Fever Roasters coffee shop, 7475 Douglas Boulevard, Douglasville.
I hope you can make it!
Michael’s now owns the online business of the now defunct Hancock Fabrics:
“We are excited to share with you that the legacy of Hancock Fabrics will continue, as the Bankruptcy Court has approved the sale of the on-line business of Hancock Fabrics, Inc. and its affiliated entities to Michaels Stores. Today, Michaels operates more than 1,200 stores across the United States and Canada. Michaels also maintains a strong on-line presence and warmly welcomes the customers of HancockFabrics.com to its growing family. With Hancock Fabrics, Michaels now looks to build upon Hancock’s great reputation for providing quality fabric and notions to customers across the country.”
Don’t forget about Knit in Public day
It’s coming up on June 9th. Where would you like to meet?
Here’s another free pattern from Lions Brand: City Stripes Dog Sweater.
I shared this with the knitters at this week’s NeedleNerds meeting and promised to post a link where you can get the free pattern: Lion Brand knitted poncho pullover.
The Coffee Fever Roasters has great lighting, plenty of seating, easy parking, and a nice patio area that we’ll enjoy with the warmer temps and longer days.
It was fun to see everyone last night.
Please post a comment to this blog post if you are interested in meeting sometime during the week day. I won’t be able to make a daytime meeting since I work fulltime, but I can get something coordinated.
Please join the NeedleNerds email list to receive regular announcements from the group.
I received an email from the Atlanta Knitting Guild informing the NeedleNerds about their upcoming knitting workshop. This sounds like a lot of fun!
