One Year Anniversary Meeting

Hey everyone,

What a great meeting! We had a record number of people show up to our meeting this time. I think we had up to 20 people show up. Our group photo only has 14 in it but some people only came in for a few minutes to see what our group was about. It was really nice having the meeting at the Cox Creative Center. I think next month we will try to have it at the Library in Jacksonville. I'll let you know soon for sure if that's where we're meeting.

Here's some photos from the meeting:

Our Anniversary cake.

Here are our winners of the door prizes:

Barbara won a necklace that says "Knit" on it.

Laurie won a pom-pom maker that was made by Nancy.

Sylvia won a Knitting Needles case and Helen won the "Happy Hooker" book.

Here are some action shots:

And last but not least our group photo:

Here's an update on what I know so far about the Fiber Mill tour for Nov. 1st. I have about nine people wanting to go so far. It should be about $10 per person for the tour. We will probably visit the yarn shop "Raven's Nest" while we're there. There is a lady that has an alpaca farm in Pocahontas that says we can come tour her farm while we're there. She told me to call her when we get an agenda together. Please let me know if there is anything else you would like to do while we are there. I'm going to do some more research to see if there is anything else we can visit while we're there too.

See you next time,
