Hi Sheila!
The message you replied to was a spammer. I removed them from the forum. (They had strange advertisements in their signature.)

HI I'M FROM BREVARD
I'm new to this. I might be doing it all wrong. But I wanted everyone to know about the greatest yarn shop in Western NC located in Brevard NC.

CHARLOTTE'S FIBERS
I guess I did it right this time. Charlotte's Fibers located in Brevard NC is the greatest yarn shop in Western NC. If you can't find it there, you can't find it anywhere, is my opinion. It is worth the drive from where ever you are. Brevard is also a great little town to shop in and stop for lunch also.

I was born in Charlotte, and have lived in the vicinity my whole life. I would love to get to know other knitters in the area.
I just signed up today. I have lived in NC for 45 years. I live in Kernersville. Would love to join a local group to learn more.

I am in Kernersville, NC
Hi Shavon,

I just found this site. Are you still in Greensboro,NC? I lived there for 25 plus years and moved here 3 years ago.
Are there other knitters around?
Would liketo learn more as I am just a beginner but a quick learner.
Let me know if you would like to meet.
ccp



Another NC person over here! I currently live in Greensboro, although I've lived all over the Carolinas it seems: hometown and family in Rocky Mount, spent 2 years at a residential high school in Durham, college in Winston-Salem, grad school in Columbia, SC and now I've been living in Greensboro the past 3 years - whew! But I love living in Greensboro the most, and this place really feels like "home" for me.

I don't really "talk" to many knitters locally either - some of my coworkers at my former job used to knit during lunchtime, but I learned to knit after I left that job. I bet they'd be surprised to know I am an obsessed knitter now! I still go to Winston some, so I might have to check out Knit Picky. I have frequented A.C. Moore constantly since I've learned to knit this year, so I've just recently been to one LYS - The Stitch Point - and I'm slowly starting to realize why everyone loves LYS so much. I really need to start branching out and finding some more.

Nice to meet all of you![/quote]

Well hello there! I'm next door to you in HP, near 66/311. Have you been to Common Threads in High Point yet? That's the only local knitting place I go to and the group is LOVELY! I've only been knitting with them not quite a year and they welcomed me in right away. It's a great shop, you should try to pop in there sometime.

Brenda
