*sigh* something happened and I wasn't getting notifications of new posts!
Anyhow, Fiberfactory is having a sale Jan 7, and while I am working on stash reduction, I have 2 projects that I don't have a suitable substitute yarn for.  (future gifts) anyone want to meet up?  It's close to Coffee Talk too, so we could go for some coffee afterwards....

Sounds like a good idea to me. It's hard to resist a sale!

that is a brilliant idea. If I can manage to finish my one remaining christmas sock by then, I should have room on my plate for a non work yarn project. I need some fabulous sock yarns, as quite frankly, the stuff from knitpicks has been something of a disappointment.

  Ever since the big Craftster "changeover to the new server" I don't get e-mail notifications of new posts either.   I keep hoping this will just fix itself. 

Anyway, I'm good for the 7th.  Of course I have no idea where the yarn store is.....   I miss Bonnie.

The Fiber Factory is a block away from Coffee Talk, on Main Street, the north side between Robson and Macdonald. (Downtown Mesa)

I miss Bonnie too!

gah!
Thank goodness I checked in - I was wondering if it would just be me and Chris!
10am is it Smiley I'm thinking about what I need to score Tongue My yarn excuses are:
1) I made a promise before my new yrs resolutions to whittle down my stash - new yarn purchased for gift knitting does not count!
2) If I find yarn on cone that is good for plying, that doesn't count either - because it's for "business use" Wink

should we wear name tags? No, then people will think we're employees. Any thoughts?

Some people already know me, and I'm wicked easy to spot with the wacky red glasses in my userpic. I also have BRIGHT red hair, now cut in a Betty Page style bob with bangs. I'm happy to act as a beacon of Craftsterness.

let's meet on the front patio if weather permits.  and after beverage consumption we should definitely walk over to fiber factory.  * * * for those who haven't been to coffee talk before, they only accept cash. * * *

I'm wicked easy to spot... I'm happy to act as a beacon of Craftsterness.

ha ha!  i was trying to respond last night (flaky craftster server!), but that is *exactly* what i was saying-- chris is easy to spot.  chris, you can never miss a meeting because you are our official beacon of craftsterness!  Cheesy

also, if anyone needs a ride just post your cross streets.  we'll see what we can do.  Smiley

i'll send out a reminder message to everyone... i can't wait to see you all!

Umm... Okay, maybe I'm just an obsessive knitter, but I think woodland sprite was talking about meeting at the fiber factory, because if we wait too long all the good stuff will be gone gone gone. Okay, I'm going to put my rational person hat back on. Would it be possible to meet at coffee talk before ten? Or am I just kidding myself?

You yarn fiends are just too cute!  How about 9:30 at Coffee Talk?  As long as our red-haired-beacon can get there that early we should be okay.   

PS - I miss the e-mail notifications - anybody getting them yet?

This works out well, (9:30) at coffee talk - and any stragglers can head straight to fiber factory at 10.  With any kind uf luck I'll get myself out of bead early enough to get a massage at ASMT before heading out.  LOL

I had cancelled my notifications, then reactivated them and was receiving notifications for a while - I didn't get one with your post tho, RickRackRuby!

damnit! I always miss out on all the fun.. why is it the ONLY time I ever have something going on is the random days everyone meets up... Angry

have fun girls - and since this is a knitting adventure - does anyone have suggestions on the best way to get started knitting? I have crap loads of weird yarn that I've picked up over the last year (not good for first time knitters I'm sure, but came in very handy for creative xmas wrapping!). Holler with an email if you have suggestions - would be much appreciated!

It appears some of the old topics are being moved around.
This is not for this weekend - this was for LAST YEAR!
It looks like the big Fiber Factory sale happened on December 30th.

yeah this is getting confusing!  I went to the sale @ fiber factory, but I restrained myself - no yarn - !  Just bought a book and some crochet accessories.  Seriously though we need a craftster-chica meet up!

Hi girls!  Happy New Year to all!  I guess we all got the "notification" e-mail and clicked over to see what this was about.  I'm game for a meet-up.  Where should we go?  Isn't there a Sewing Festival coming up sometime in January?  Off to check....
