Christmas Meetup

It's so hard to believe that 2012 is almost over! Time has flown by and we've completed lot's of beautiful and fun projects and had a great time getting together to do so!

We had our Christmas get together this year at Debbie's home. She graciously offered her home and had made all of the food and beverages herself. She had made soup, meatballs, mini franks, finger sandwiches, chips and hot dip, cake and cookies. She had soft drinks, tea and punch if you wanted a cold beverage and then she had hot tea and coffee if you wanted something hot. Her home was decorated so beautifully for Christmas! Thank you Debbie for all that you did. We really appreciate it! 
Gail and I were the first to arrive and then Kory arrived and soon after that Rose. We really missed all of you that couldn't come. Here are a few photo's that I took and of course I forgot to get someone to snap one of me! I also forgot Rose and so that is why she is standing outside in the cold. 
Sorry Rose! Merry Christmas to everyone! See you next year!

New Meetup Spot for the New Year!

Wow, it's been awhile since I have posted to our Knit Nut blog! This past December 2011 we found out that our meetup spot (The Coffee Garden) was closing due to the shopping center not renewing their lease. Needless to say we were shocked and sad for the owners. So, we then needed a new spot and had no idea where we would meet. Some mentioned Panera Bread or Caribou Coffee in Matthews, but somehow we never got around to meeting. 

So, a few weeks back as I was driving through Indian Trail (Hemby Bridge) I spotted this new coffee house called Madison's Coffee! It is only about 3-4 minutes from the spot where we used to meet and so I emailed everyone to say that we would give it a try at our March meetup. Well, yesterday March 17th we met there from 2 - 4 pm and really enjoyed it!

We also had a new comer to visit us! Her name is Donna and she came per an invite from Wendy. Welcome Donna!!!
Our other Donna also got to come this month. We had a nice size group and even had a young lady to stop by our table and ask for some help as she had just started knitting. We of course invited her to come and visit our group next month! Rose also snapped these pictures for us, thank you Rose!

Also, Wendy and Kim had mentioned that it would be nice if we could meet more than just the one time per month. So, starting next month we will meetup on the 1st Saturday of each month as well as the 3rd Saturday. No one should feel that they have to attend both or one or the other meetup time. Just come when you can and enjoy a couple of hours knitting and crocheting with friends!
I will continue to email everyone the Wednesday before our 3rd Saturday meetup and I've asked Wendy to take over emailing the Wednesday before our 1st Saturday meetup!

Next Meetup....April 7th, 2012
