Well it sounds like you need to get out more! You are missing out! The market has all sorts of wares! Come on down and check it out. The market season starts this May, keep an eye out.

Damn, I'm usually out of town all summer. I try to keep busy by going to workshops nonstop. That and I get school credit for them which helps keep me graduating on time (I go to VCU).

Any definitive word on the next Bizarre Market? I've heard differeing reports on when the date is.

Last I've heard it's in April... the same weekend as Arts in the Park at Byrd Park.

We had a great time at our first Sn'B at the coffee shop this Friday. Looks like it'll be a regular thing, every Friday, 4ish or whenever you can come. I can't do this Friday, as I'm out of town but come on down Richmond knitters! They'll be others there.

BTW, the new yarn shop, Yarn Lounge in Carytown has a hiring sign up! I'm all set, but if you know anyone, send them down. (and I have no relation to the shop, but if I could, I would so very much work there! )

Man!  I wish I knew how to knit!  I sew, but it's not quite as easy to bring my sewing machine to hang out.

One day I'm going to learn how to knit, but for now I'm obsessed with perfecting the construction of the cloth diaper and its relevent accessories.

Leila!  I didn't know you where on craftster!  how great.  Well, whenever you're ready to learn to knit or crochet come on downtown! 


I also posted this on the stich n' bitch forum, but it's worth repeating, I suppose:  Is anyone else planning on being at 17.5 this Friday?  I'm thinking about heading down there, but probably won't get there until after 8:00 since I have to work late.  Hope to see some of you there!

Hey bring some needles and yarn (think big) and I'll be more than happy to teach you!! I'll be downtown Friday, a little later but not too late as the little guy will be in tow, and I don't thinkhe can hang too long. We'll see.

See you soon,
Beth (the other one, ithnkuno)

Thanks BethIDon'tAlreadyKnow, but I think I'll have to miss this one.  We're a one income family and the finances don't allow new hobby supplies right now!  Not with the fabric addiction I just finished feeding!  I can't even buy new sewing supplies for a while, much less knitting supplies.  Maybe after I sell a few more auctions...=)

Oh I so understand! I'm a single momma myself, and a public school teacher, which = broke! I can't ever afford a babysitter, so if the little guy can't go, I can't either. That's why I love knitting! I just picked it up over the summer, but didn't get into it until recently when my son started walking and getting into everything. I sew and do other things too, but I can knit while watching my toddler, and take it with me to places too!
What kind of work do you do?( Sewing etc..?)
If you can get out sometime for a little grown up time, come and join us anyway! Bring some stichery or something small to work on. I'd love to meet you.

Hey Beth.  I have so much respect for you and other single moms.  I'm married and stay home with Eliza and it's challenging enough as it is!

I just learned how to sew and am borrowing my mother-in-laws sewing machine indefinitely, but I really, really love it.  I sew Eliza's diapers and all the relevant accessories (covers, doublers, etc) and because of Craftster, I've worked up enough courage to try a diaper bag.  I made a temporary one from some camo fleece I was going to use for a diaper, but it's just a tote bag style and I didn't bother spending much time or effort on it (and you can tell).  It works for now and later I can use it as a shopping bag.  =)  I hope to start the diaper bag this weekend.

Eventually, I'd like to progress to making some clothes for Eliza.  I don't think it'll be too incredibly hard.  I've heard that simple clothes are easier to make than diapers, so I'm not too worried yet.  I just haven't gone out and bought any patterns.

I definitely want to learn how to knit, both for fun and to make Eliza some wool diaper soakers (we're really into this cloth diapering thing, if you haven't noticed!).  I might be able to buy some stuff in a couple weeks, depending on how my auctions do (I sell kid's clothings online as a small home business).  We've had some unexpected medical expenses and other things come up recently that have put more of a crunch on our budget then usual.  =(

Anyway, I'd love to come out tomorrow if the weather permits.  Will you be bringing your son?  If I come, it'll probably be with Eliza.  I guess I could drop her off with my husband as he's leaving work, but it all depends on this finicky weather we've been having.

Okay, this is way too long!  Talk with you later!

Hey All!

I poked my head into 17.5 last Friday, but was late to meeting someone, so I didn't join.  Leila - I too am a die-hard sewing fanatic (I'm sure my addiction would put yours into a wonderful perspective!) - but would still like to come by, meet everyone and maybe get some hand-work done when I have it.  I am the queen of diaper bags right now (3 to make by 3/4/05), so if you want to discuss, PM me.

Hope to see you guys soon!

Back to some original thread stuff - anyone vending at the St. Pat's day festival March 12 in Shockoe?  Anyone have any information on the CAM Fest in April?
