Hello readers of LittleWit’s blog! Guest poster bunnysquirrel here to do some shameless free advertising for the event I’m helping organize here in Maryland. It’s a cross between a mini fiber festival (30+ vendors; all indie dyers, spinners, and small fiber farmers) and a knit-out. Anyone within a 4 hour driving radius of Baltimore should totally come hang out, buy cool stuff, and knit with us!
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 HYP 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!
