I just got this in my e-mail and thought some of you might be interested in helping the knitters and crocheters out but adding and subtracting for them!

Hi,

About one year ago, Mapmuse.com began a project- the interactive
mapping of yarn shops across the US. We initially researched and populated
these maps ourselves, with the idea in mind that knitting and crochet
enthusiasts would subsequently add to, and enhance, the information we
provided. A few months later, at the suggestion of a MapMuse visitor, we
added maps for knitting and crochet clubs. According to our records, you
were one of our contributers. We would like to thank your for your
help! Our knitting and crochet topics were very popular- we had over 75,000
visitors to knitting and crochet pages this year.

Iím writing today to ask that if you know of any yarn shops or knitting
and crochet clubs that have opened or closed in the last year, that you
make those changes to the maps. Also, we encourage you to add any shops
or clubs that we are still missing. In this way, we hope to keep the
maps current and useful for everyone. This listing continues to be free.

If you own or manage a yarn shop, we also have a new option of a
premium listing at $10/ year. This listing has all of the features of the
free listing, as well as an enhanced map presence, a text link beneath the
map, and more photos.

If you have a knitting related website, you can post a link in our
Recommended Links section (also $10/ year). You can read about these
options, and make changes, through easy to use links on the site- if you have
any problems, see http://find.mapmuse.com/re1/mmFAQ.htm#A4

The link to the Yarn Shops map is:

For Knitting and Crochet Clubs, see:
http://find.mapmuse.com/interest/knitting_clubs

If you are not familiar with MapMuse.com, our goal is to provide maps
related to peopleís interest and needs. MapMuse continues to add new
topics of interest each week. If you have a topic that you would like to
see mapped, you can suggest the interest on the MapMuse site, and there
is a good chance it will be addressed.

Lastly, if you have a knitting or crochet related blog, newsletter, or
website, a link or a mention would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Ooh, I didn't know they covered yarn clubs/meet-ups! Handy!
