A sudden change of plans

Tonight's meeting is going to be a busy and exciting one and possibly a little crowded. Firstly, Shirleen Kistner has been double-booked, so she won't be able to speak at our meeting. But those of you who attend the Sewing Expo will be sure to tell her hello and that we are sorry to have missed her.

Fortunately, Hal Ozbelli and Jean Lux of Universal Yarn in Concord, North Carolina are going to be at our meeting. Universal Yarn is a sponsor of Stitches South and a sponsor of the Think Outside the Sox contest. Knowing that there is never enough show and tell at our meetings, Hal and Jean have been invited to fill out our meeting by showing off their trunk show. Be sure to show them some Southern knitting hospitality in return.

And for you fiber fanatics south of the city, Cheryl will be opening Sugarfoot Yarns in Peachtree City, probably later this month. Cheryl will have a table at tonight's meeting. So do be sure to say hello to her and see what nifty fiber goodness she brings to tempt us.

Additionally, several of our usual member merchants have requested tables, including Rare Purls, Only Ewe and Cotton Too, Needle Nook, Main Street Yarns, & Gale's Art. Remember that social hour starts at 6:30. There are many, many food options available at Exit 30 -- fast food (Wendy's, Arby's, McDonald's, Burger King, Starbucks) as well as Indian, Mexican, Chinese, Japanese, even a little Italian pizza place. So come up this way after work, eat, and get here early because there will be lots to see and do even before our meeting begins.
