I can pick up everything and bring it to the swap. If you want.
I only knit because having sharp, pointy objects around keeps me safe. - off a t-shirt

Because I just didn't say no and since I never imagined the quantity of yarn..... I allowed someone I did not know to drop off what I thought was just a bag of yarn. Boy was I ever wrong. This is massive. Now, I know the annual swap is happening in a few weeks and I cannot attend...having cataract surgeries, two, dring that 3 week period and know driving, let alone seeing is totally out of the question. So, I have this super, huge, gargantuan stack of boxes on my front porch. Bless his heart, you cannot imagine the hissy fit my husband threw! Yarns gotta go. Immediately, anyone interested in pulling their van or truck up to my front porch before the end of the weekend to get first shot at it? The ony rule...and I'm very firm on this is. It's all or nothing! I'm betting that this isn't the usual grandmothet's basement stuff, I could be very wrong, but if you want it, call me and come pick it up. If not, if I can get someone, goodwill order wise, you'll see at a thrift store for sale. Cell phone is[masked] 5129. Don't tease me, if you say you want it all, you better come and get it. I know where you hang out. Now, part two of the hissy inducing problem.... There are also tons of knitting books, all of them really, really good. I will give those who are attending the Friday group a chance at these. Tomorrow at precisely three I will unszip a purple suitcase full of as I said very nice, sought after, all in excellent condition books. If you were planning on attending, this is a terrific opportunity. And now the sad truth, those books that are not scarfed up will go to the used book store in the dobbin shopping center if I can convince the guy to take them or will go to the drop off at Goodwill. These will not be coming back to the front porch. If there is any chance of you dropping by Sidmo tomorrow at three, here's what may feel like a golden opportunity. Save this almost 38 year marriage....I may have pushed this clutter phobic guy too far! Signed, desperate in Columbia, Lynn, who has gotta learn the value in saying no, no matter how sad or tragic the back story!
Columbia Sip 'n Knit started on a Wednesday night way back in October 2006 and we used to meeting in a locations called Border's Bookstore in Columbia (now Books-A-Million). Wednesday night attendance grew and grew till Borders just could not hold us any more and we moved to Panera's. Shortly after the move the Saturday group was created for those that could not join us on Wednesday nights. Then Tuesday morning's were added to the calendar and Friday afternoon's were added in the Fall of 2012.
Everyone is welcome. We have a wide range of expertise in all our groups, so if you have a problem or can't understand a pattern, do not hesitate to ask!! If the person you asked doesn't know I guarantee they can direct you to the best person! We do charitable project every once in a while and we'll schedule something soon.We'd love to have you join us anytime.
Tuesday mornings meet at Panera Bread on Dobbin Road.
Wednesday evenings meet at 2 locations! Panera Bread on Dobbin Road, and Wegmans (upper level).
Friday afternoons meet at Sidamo Cafe on Maple Lawn Blvd.
Saturday mornings meet at Panera Bread in the Columbia Mall
Each group has its on personality and there is one just right for you! Or you could go to all of them! We have no dues, no committees, no board of directors. It's a no problem, no drama kind of group. We have been knitting non stop since the fall of 2006!
Please check the calendar for special events and changes in locations.
