New Orleans Knit and Stitch April Meeting

  • Apr 10, 2008 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

As many of you know, this is a reorganization of the New Orleans Needlework meetup, as we are no longer able to contact our previous organizer. I know this is short notice for an April meeting, but that's just the way it worked out this time. You will have the normal notice for the May meeting. Our group has so much fun together, we didn't want our meetup to dissolve. Although I think our usual group would still have found a way to meet together, by using this venue, we can contact each other more easily and we can invite new people to join our gathering. Ms. Georgia has graciously offered her home as a meeting place and we wholeheartedly thank her. Ms. Georgia runs a bed and breakfast out of her historic home on Magazine Street and has the room to house us and our needlework baggage for the meetings. She has stated she will provide tea and coffee for the meetings. Of course, if anyone wants to bring a snack or two, they can do so. We know that some people may come to the meeting directly after work or such and may not have eaten supper before coming. You are welcome to bring any food that you might want, or Mojo's coffee house is about 4 buildings down from Ms. Georgia's house, and they do serve food. I will provide complete directions to Ms. Georgia's location as soon as possible, hopefully with a map. We commonly bring a project to work on at the meeting and most of us bring in new yarns we gotten in our stashes, new books we may have gotten and we generally share information and free patterns with each other. Feel free to bring in anything you want to show off, or anything you might need help with. I promise if we can't help you right then, one of us will find a way to help in the long run. Its really great to be able to visit with people who have similar interests in, and appreciation of, hand-made items. If you have trouble with transportation, mention it on the board; it's possible someone may be passing your way and can help out. You never know unless you try. smile

    I really had fun! Didn't do much work on my knitting-in-the-round baby sweater, but that's okay. Helping Laura was very satisfying.

    So many different projects, and so many different approaches to them! Laura had a lace afghan problem -- she had ordered new yarn to complete it, and was absolutely dissatisfied with the new yarn she received! After consultation with Angela and me, she ended up courageously allowing me to rip about 15 inches of her work so she could continue to the finish without using any of the new dyelot.

    We had a wonderful time. I think that the meeting was more intimate in a home setting than it possibly could be in a commercial venue. Usually I can't remember the names of the persons I meet in, say, a coffee shop, but in this case, I remember everybody and it was great!
