    We had beautiful weather and good company.

    Fun! Visited all the shops in one day. It was long but well worth it for the great pattern giveaways and so much beautiful yarn. It's also great anytime you can support a locally owned business in your area.

      I'm glad you brought Hailie. She's such a sweet girl. The Alpaca farm was pretty cool. You guys have fun today!

      Finished today as traffic made me run too late yesterday. Nice to cross paths in Allyn on Saturday and the alpaca farm today was great.

    I'm here at the P&R.

  • Tina M.

    I found my beads today and plan to hit all the stores, but i cant make the early start. I will check here in the morning. If nobody posts, I will use my original route starting in Olympia and may catch you all in Allyn,

    • Meredith

      Sounds good. Hopefully we see you there.

  • Jessica L.

    I would love to go, but I can't afford the gas an tolls to make it to Lakewood and back to meet :( Sorry guys.

    May 3, 2013

  • Meredith

    Good morning! Just another reminder to 100% confirm by today.
    I have confirmations from Karley and her guests and Tina so far. I don't want to leave anyone behind so please let us know. Thanks!

    May 3, 2013

  • Karley

    Linda and I will be there at 7:30am. Still not sure if I will have another person or not.

    • Meredith

      Thanks for the update.

      May 2, 2013

  • Tina M.

    I am picking out a simple beaded pattern and then shopping specifically for those beads and a matching yarn. Hopefully, that will deter me from returning home with a car load of yarn!

  • Erin T.

    I want to come but I don't think I will be there at 7:30

    April 29, 2013

    • Karley

      How early could meet up?

      April 29, 2013

    • Meredith

      Try the other route that starts at 9am with Tina.

      April 29, 2013

  • Meredith

    I just saw the weather for Saturday. It is going to be SUNNY and 77! We couldn't have asked for better weather for a day trip and lunch next to the water.

    Tina thanks for making another option. Everyone please let us know which route you would like to go on.

    April 24, 2013

  • Tina M.

    I will try reposting the files as PDF for those having problems.

    April 24, 2013

  • Tina M.

    If some of you don't want to spend the whole day driving, I am open to a more "local" route carpool:

    I'll post a possibility in the Discussions section.

    April 23, 2013

    • Meredith

      Good idea. THanks

      April 23, 2013

    • Meredith

      I can't get the file to open on my phone or computer.

      April 23, 2013

  • Caroline

    I'm open to tour just some local places, since I've never been

    April 23, 2013

  • Caroline

    Too much traveling in one day. I think I'll visit some local places myself. Of course it won't be as fun

    April 19, 2013

    • Meredith

      I'm sorry to hear that but it really isn't that bad of a drive. You're welcome to ride with me if you change your mind let us know.

      April 19, 2013

  • Caroline

    I was looking at the map and it seems like many driving hours. I was wondering if we could cut some of the yarn stores.

    April 18, 2013

    • Meredith

      If we cut any then we don't qualify for the grand prizes. What we can do if anyone who wanted to leave once we get back in the local area we can drop them off back at the parking garage.

      April 18, 2013

  • Tina M.

    I just uploaded a file with full route and driving directions for a possible route/sequence of shops. Look in the site files section and I'll bring the printout tonight.
