There is plenty of easily accessible free parking.

Since we need to secure a table, please let me know if you plan on coming or not so I know what size table to get.

Kniting at the Beach 2008!

I know it's a little early to start thinking about this, but last year I had a great time learning how to crochet at the 2007 Knit-In on Folly Beach, sponsored by the local knitting guild, Coastal Cultured Purls.

Anyway, I check their site every once in awhile and they have a new post regarding next years Knitting at the Beach.

Here is the post:

It’s already time to start planning for next year! What classes are you interested in seeing offered? Are there any big name instructors that you would like us to invite? Do you want to teach a class or join us for the weekend? We’re looking at a weekend in near the end of February and will let you know the exact date soon. Start making plans to attend!

I think it would be totally cool if we all went! They got a discounted rate at the Holiday Inn on Folly Beach. I don't think I would spend the night since I am local, but some of them did just as a little mini vacation even though they lived near by. Some of them came all the way from Columbia.

Anyway, if there is a technique you've been wanting to learn that would take more than someone could teach you in our meetings start thinking of them. The classes were free. Last year they had a felting class, a crochet class and a multi directional knitting class.

Next Meeting: Sept 18, Trident Tech Bldg 920 @ 7pm

Next week's meeting will be Sept 18 at Trident Tech, Bldg 920 at 7pm.

920 is the Culinary Arts Building. We meet in the front lobby in front of the Ballrooms.

If you take the Madeline Ave Entrance off of Rivers and park in the first parking lot on the right, you will see the 920 building. This is the closest parking lot to the part of the building where we meet.

Hope to see everyone there!
