August is almost upon us. What should we do? Should we meet at someones house and do a specific craft? anything anybody is dying to explore? soapmaking can be fun and social.... and it cleans the floors, too... Knit and watch Buffy reruns? (that's what we'd do in atlanta) meet at the coffee house like usual? organize an all day thrift o rama? It was great to meet everybody today and I'm kicking myself that I didn't get to meet the artist, but thanks for the recap denise. thanks bonnie for the peek at the new vogue knitting. must get self a copy. they keep doing the most amazing modular bottoms with koigu. does anyone know when the new Knit1 comes out? alright I now have to go post in the knitting forum about the maddeningly vague shibori article in the new interweave.

would everybody be interested in meeting up at my house and knitting? or crocheting? Maybe we could organize a yarn swap? I live at williams field and power on the asu east campus. so I understand if it's way out there. I just wanted to suggest something as I'm crafty deprived.

Maybe we should all meet at Gracie's Thrift, since I keep hearing about how fun it is on the Phx Thrift thread! Or the usual Coffee Talk hangout would be cool. I think that CT is centrally located to the majority of us. Power Rd. is pretty darn far to me.

I DO live way far out. Anyway... How about if we meet up at Gracie's on August 13 and then either hit some goodwills which are 50% off all that day or go and get coffee, maybe at three roots again since it's relatively close by and we all know where it is. thoughts anybody?

WOW- that sounds like fun!  I'm attending a funeral at 10:00.  It's hard to say how long it will go.  (Don't I always have some excuse?)  Maybe I can meet up with you guys somewhere later.

so what's the verdict for saturday then?  i'd be up for meeting at 3 roots.  is there enough room there?

ever since coffee talk rearranged that front room it's been a total pain.  i hate to move those big grandma chairs all over the house.  (and i'm not too excited at the prospect of sitting outside)  but that's just my opinion on the matter.  i'll go whereever you all decide.

also, what time?  10:00?

So are we still meeting at 10 am at 3 Roots? Or are we going to wait until the 20th for the Gracie's sale?

Hi AZ Craftsters,

After the funeral is over I will call chindogu and chriswass (if your contact info has changed since our "original" list please let me know.)  Hopefully I can meet up with you all at Gracie's or wherever.  Later!

Ok, so last weekend didn't materialize, so, I say that we meet up this Saturday at 10am at Gracie's for the big sale day, then go to Haji Baba (a Middle Eastern grocery and cafe that is just down the street) for lunch to look at each other's prizes. If we feel inspired to, we could also include SAS, since it is so close.

Gracies Family Thrift Store
1520 E Apache Blvd Tempe, AZ
(opens at 9am)

Haji-Baba 
1513 E Apache Blvd
(opens at 11:30am)

Who else is in?

I just saw this posted on the Stich 'n Bitch Phx list that may be of interest, if I can get my butt up to go there before we meet at Gracie's:

   From: "pppaz2" <pppaz2@yahoo.com>
Subject: Navajo Churro Yarn!

Hi everyone,
I want to extend a special invitation to you to visit my artist booth at the Downtown Phoenix Public Market (Central Ave and McKinley in downtown Phoenix) this Saturday, August 20, from 8 am to noon.  I've just returned from the Navajo Nation with a gorgeous assortment of Navajo Churro handspun, vegetal dyed yarn that will be offered for sale this Saturday morning for the first time.  I am hoping to establish a long term partnership with this Navajo family to bring their yarn and fleece to you on a regular basis through the Market - they provide a unique Arizona Grown product that you just can't find anywhere else.  Please stop by and
say hello - I'm there every week with my own handspun yarn and sometimes pottery or photography.

Lorraine Herder, her sister Edith and their family create handspun, vegetal dyed yarn from the wool of Navajo Churro sheep on a remote ranch north of Second Mesa, Arizona.  Generations of the family have lived on these vast high mesa grasslands since the 1800's and are now part of a concerted effort to reintroduce the Navajo Churro breed of sheep, which was nearly extinct by the 1970's. Navajo Churro wool comes in an amazing rainbow of colors including black, brown, silver, grey, beige, cream, white and the rare red mesa hue.  The wool fibers are especially long (6 to 7 inches) which make them ideal for handspinning and other fiber arts.

If you visit the www.foodconnect.org website before you visit, you can print out a coupon good for $1 off any market purchase.

Okay I just learned a new word.  Vegetal.  I love it and I'm going to try to use it in a conversation today.....

That market sounds great Chris.  Maybe after you scout it out for us we could make that our Sept. AZ Craftster meet-up destination!  Look for nearby coffee shops.

See you Saturday.

Sorry I missed you guys!  But I thought the last thing I needed right now was the temptation to buy or accumulate more stuff.  Hope you had fun.  Hope to catch you in Sept.

Hi Girls,

Guess what?  I finished Cora's skirt!  Here is a photo:

 
 

Didn't it turn out well?  I also made a shorter skirt from the pink fabric.  



These always look better on a model.  



I was feeling a little guilty because it seemed like Carole wanted the pink fabric too. Smiley  Carole, I just wanted you to see that I put it to good use!   Bonnie we missed you - next time join us for lunch!

Wow!  Those turned out so great.  I didn't make anything with my finds yet.  I consider myself the craftster-in-major-training... maybe I should make a button and have that be my avatar like the ones you see on new employees. LOL

I made a skirt from my new ties too.  I can't help it!

Is there a 12-step program for obsessed craftsters?

I finally used part of the vintage needlepoint that I got on our thrift-capade! I saved the lobster for myself, but used the sailboat part on a skirt for my Stash Swap partner! You can see her modeling the skirt here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=50945.60 page 7 towards the bottom.

Here's a good detail shot:


I also posted my first original knitting project! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=54691.0
