What we're about

Once upon a time, there was a wonderful group of fiber artists that would meet, stitch, laugh, and generally have a good time. Despite locations changing, a core group continued to find a way to see each other.

Then came the dark times. Drama descended and the joy that was felt was replaced by expectations, rules, overpriced snacks, and an utter disregard for the written language. (OK, so that may have been only me.) With this came a call from the core group- Hey, Chick! Don't you have a shop where we can meet? When will the shop be ready?

So, back in November 2014, despite the shop being far from ready, several of us starting meeting in the building that has been in my family for three generations. The building is old and drafty, but the people are warm and crafty. (Lame, but it almost rhymes.)

If you like to stitch.

If you like to laugh.

If you can tell a joke- and take one.

We have Chicks with Sticks (knitters), Happy Hookers (crocheters), and a couple of Pricks (cross-stitch and embroidery). Bring your favorite craft and your drink of choice. Hungry? Bring your dinner or we can always order in. Besides fiber arts, if you have questions about woodworking, auto mechanics, or metal work, we also have the resident expert who pops in with a nightly joke. Fortunately, his skills as a craftsman surpass his humor...

Hope to see you!

p.s. If you want to learn, we have a stash of knitting needles and some yarn. I suggest size 7 or 8 knitting needles or an H hook and an inexpensive worsted weight yarn (Red Heart Super Saver acrylic or Sugar n Spice cotton) in a brighter color. We have a ton! Don't try to learn using dark or fuzzy yarns. You won't be able to see your stitches easily. Don't spend a lot of money on yarn for learning! You will make mistakes. Guaranteed! Your tension will be wonky. Save the expensive stuff for later. Also, as a beginner, you will probably do better knitting with plastic or wood needles as metal needles are slippery. I actually taught one of our group how to knit using sharpened chop sticks since the metal needles were scary fast.

OR....

Contact me. Chances are we have some extras around.
