Linda, a past AKG board member, in the spirit of the day.
So many of these people volunteer their time so that the fiber arts organizations in our community can serve us. And so many of you wonderful knitters, crocheters, and other fiber fanatics join us to make our events the happy, festive social occasions they are. We are incredibly fortunate to have a vibrant fiber arts community. We have plenty of educational opportunities to expand our enjoyment of our craft. And we have plenty of opportunities for community service to make our corner of the world better through the loving and creative act of crocheting or knitting.

Todd proving that crochet is art!
Briana, an insouciant new knitter!
We'll see ya'all at the totally rockin' "after" party -- STITCHES South.
