Lots of things to announce!

Happy Thursday! It’s a beautiful day here in Florida (the temperature actually matches the calendar) and I’ve been a busy busy bee.

There’s a ton of stuff I can’t announce yet, but it’s going to be super cool when I can. ๐Ÿ˜€

However, this is not just a typical teasing post! I have real news that I can share!

I’m scheduled to teach three workshops early next year (only a couple of months away!) at a brand new yarn shop.

The shop? A Good Yarn in Sarasota, FL. Susan, the owner, is an absolute delight and has a stunningly beautiful shop. It’s bright, it’s airy, it’s open, and it has crochet stuff! She’s got a great selection of yarns with more to come.

I’ll be teaching the following workshops based on my patterns:

Broomstick Lace Cloth, Saturday, January 23rd, from 1-3pm.

Felted Coasters with Box, Saturday, February 13th, from 1-3pm.

Broomstick Lace Wrap, Saturday, February 27th, from 1-3pm.

I’m in the process right now of making samples for her shop of these three items. I can’t wait to get them done because the colors chosen are spectacular. I’ll share photos once I get finished.

And another thing to announce!

The Gulf Coast Crochet Guild of Florida (chapter status pending) now has a new home at A Good Yarn! We meet on the first Saturday of every month from 11:30am – 1:30pm. If you’re in the area, come out and join us and take a look at the shop! It’s a win win for us all. ๐Ÿ™‚

Okay, that’s all from me for a bit. I need to get to work on these samples. Have a great day!

Guild meeting

(I know I owe a longer post, but that will have to wait. Still neck deep in deadlines and projects and am popping up to quickly post this).

South Hillsborough County Crochet guild will have their first meeting this Saturday at Barnes and Noble in Brandon, FL, from noon to 1:30pm. If you’re in the area and have been longing for a CGOA local chapter, come on out! We’ll be talking about our ideas for the chapter, filling out the official paperwork, and discussing a more permanent location.

If you need more info, we can be found on Ravelry and Yahoo Groups.

A real post with pictures will happen soon. I promise. I can’t promise when, but soon. ๐Ÿ™‚


Sorry for the lack of postings, I’ve been super busy with projects that I couldn’t show you. Those are done and today I’m resting from crochet (but not from everything else). I can’t wait to tell you about what I’ve been working on, but that will have to wait. Sorry. But y’all should be used to that by now. ๐Ÿ™‚

Announcement #1

My big announcement is something that I’ve been thinking about for well over a year. I finally decided after coming home from Chain Link that I needed to just bite the bullet and do it.

I want to start a chapter for the Crochet Guild of America. So, to help get excitement building, I’ve started a Yahoo group and a Ravelry group for the South Hillsborough County Crochet guild. The name may change once we have our first meeting, but for now that seemed to work. I chose southern hillsborough county to be able to reach out to Pinellas and Manatee counties as well. Well, that and it’s close to me and to at least get started, I need it nearby.

The first meeting will be Saturday, October 3rd from 12-1:30p. The location will be announced on both groups once it’s confirmed. My goals for the chapter are to do local charity work, demos, and education (both within the group and to others).

So, if you’re in the area, please join us! I look forward to meeting new people. ๐Ÿ™‚

Announcement #2

I’ll be teaching a demo in amigurumi at the Sarasota Fiber-In on Saturday, September 19. I’ll be teaching from 10:30-11:30a. If you’re in the area, come on out and help support crochet! There will be a lot of other demos as well as vendors. Check out the website for more info. I’m looking forward to being a part of it.

Okay, that’s all from me for now. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope to have more info to share with you soon.
