I work in this really cute little cafe attached to a Yarn Store called the Yarn Garden here in SE Portland.  The coffee and tea is excellent but no one knows about us!  Please come in and knit with me!  We will be having live music this fall to help promote a knitting group.  Come to the Yarn Garden Sipperie at 14th and Hawthorne!

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

Are you trying to set up certain nights for people to come? I don't knit but I could be talked into pulling out the crochet hook again.

Too bad that place sucks!
You should choose a better location, one that isn't owned by horrible people.

eeeep!  i haven't been in any LYS in Portland long enough to get a very bad experience here yet.  well, except the one on the way to "The Bins."  I wasn't exactly dressed to the nines, and got treated a little differently than the dressier folks.  Plus, their cafe had expired juices.

Where you talking about Mabels or Yarn Garden, stabbedinthefront?

I've heard that some former employees may have not been the friendliest, but all of the people in the cafe are really cool.  It seems like there is a genuine interest here, and I think I might take it upon myself to start a monday night group.  We are open until nine.  Any takers?
