What: Yarn Party! Check out local yarn vendors, sit and knit, meet new people!
Who: All your favorite local yarn dyers and spinners, plus some extra crafty goodness! And all our knitting/crocheting/spinning friends (you!) of course!!
Where: Historic Savage Mill 8600 Foundry Street, Savage, MD 20763 Just off I-95, plenty of parking!
When: Sunday, March 15, 2009 - 12 PM to 4 PM (watch the blog - hours may be extended)
Why: Who needs an excuse to get together and craft?! We wanted to get together and spread some fiber love!
In addition to some great crafty vendors, we'll also have:
free lessons on knitting, crochet, spinning, and maybe more
fabulous door prizes to be given away throughout the event
crafty goody bags for participants (while supplies last)
weather-permitting, a sit and spin/crochet/knit area out on the deck. And we'll be collecting knitted and crocheted items for local charities.
No, I'm afraid the the Sanguine Gryphon's Lia will not be there this year, but I just couldn't resist showing this picture again from last year's show. We did have a great time and I know we;ll have a great time this year, too. Don't forget to keep up with the Homespun Yarn Party blog for updates and even cool prizes.
I'm planning to have hand dyed yarn and spinning fiber, and maybe some hand dyed locks for your art yarn spinning enjoyment, oh, and even a batt or two.
