Directions:
Take the Renfro Street Exit (on your right) off of I-35 headed

over the Rail Road tracks, you'll see a parking lot with the cool old
buildings of Old Town Burleson on your left.

Turn Left into the parking lot and Mountain Mudd is the third or
fourth building in the strip.

There are a number of good restaurants within a block of the coffee

Woo-hoo!  We had 8 people come to our second meeting, with at least three other people coming next week!

Exciting!  We were spinning and clicking knitting needles...most were knitting socks.  Seriously...anyone's welcome!  We're going to teach a couple of young ladies to knit next week.

Grab Your Fiber Projects and Join Us!

Yep.  We'll have updates on the website if we skip a day...like two weeks ago we skipped because of Halloween.

Keep in touch!

Intrusive? No way! We'd love to have you. Only, I get to say that you're my Craftster.org friend so that I get my name in the drawing for a free Inkle Loom at the end of the month.  (You get a chance to win it as well. It's a bonus for coming in October!)

Looking forward to meeting you!

For sure! We're having a great time together with about ten to twelve crafting each week.

Due to Holiday parties and such, we will not be at the coffee shop on December 10th and the 24th, but will be back at J.J.'s on the 17th. (Don't know about the 31st [New Year's Eve] yet.)

You should totally come and join us!

Hope to meet you soon,
RM

Sure! Come this week if you can. We'll have a lot of our crafters showing off stuff they got at the Alpaca Show this past weekend. What kind of projects do you have in the works? What do you want to learn in the future?

See you soon!

I've been knitting for about 6 years and taught myself to spin on a drop spindle a few years ago. I never have gotten the knack of crocheting. I've been sewing a lot lately so I'll have to see what I even have on the needles. I'll probably swing by after work this Wed. My name is Katie by the way. I'm really excited. My hands have been itchin for my knitting.  :)
