Hi there! Have you checked out A Stitcher's Haven down near the Broward Mall?
Oh yes! That is my favorite yarn store!

LYS anyone?
Are there any good LYS's around the Lake and Orange County areas? I'm in Lake County, but not too far from Orange County, and the only place I get to go to buy yarn is Joann's. I'm probably going to start buying online, but I like to touch and feel yarn before I buy it. Any recommendations?

Also, are there any knitting groups around this area? I meet with a few of my friends once or twice a month, but we don't really get much knitting done and we're all beginners. I'd like to meet people who have been knitting for years so I can learn more. But I don't know anyone who knits.

Thanks everyone!
Melissa

Olrando Florida - Distaff Day 07 - January 6
The first year I learned to knit I thought I was the only person in Orlando who knits. I had joined a Florida knitting yahoo group and when the information about Distaff Day arrived, I decided to go. WOW a huge room full of knitters and spinners .... and I found my WONDERFUL knitting group .... Knit or Knot !! If you are looking for a central Florida group ... this is a great place to start!!!


3rd Annual Orlando Area Distaff Day
Hosted by
“OAKS”
(Orlando Area Knitters & Spinners)

Date: Saturday, January 6th, 2007 Time: 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Location: Presbyterian Church of the Lakes
4700 Lincoln Ave.
Orlando, FL 32819

Cost: $5.00 – (Monies collected will be given to the church for the use of the room)

What to Bring:

1. Spinning Wheel, Knitting, Weaving, Beading, etc. (whatever you have put away, or not, and want to work on)

2. Bag Lunch – There is a Publix and Albertson’s close by with a deli if any one forgets.

3. Coffee or Tea mug - The Hosting Guilds will provide the beverage and treats. (cookies and veggies)

4. Item for the “Yankee Swap” Put in a plain paper bag and seal so the contents cannot be viewed. This item should have a value of up to $20.00 and should also be something that if you get you will be thrilled!!! (Because you might!!)

5. Items for the “Sale Table” Just like last year. Items that you have decided you might not want and would like to sell. Put a tag on the item with you name and price.

6. FREE TABLE – Some people prefer just to give things away, so get to the “Distaff Day” early “The early bird gets the worm!!”

7. The “Fashion Show” – Bring an item you made this year and share with us your experience and talent!!!!

All activities are voluntary. Feel free to participate in all or none

The second page of this attachment is a notice that we hope you print off and give to your local yarn shop. Invite all your friends!!! The nicest part of this event is not having to worry about canceling due to a blizzard, as we often did up north!!!!!

See you on the 6th!!!!!

The Orlando Knitters and Spinners are happy to announce again:

“The 3rd Annual Distaff Day”

Location:

Presbyterian Church of the Lakes

I'm in Vero Beach a transplant from Western NY. I knit a lot for the holidays and the post office loved me this year. Not cold enough to wear wool but I love knitting with it. I have fallen in love with Alpaca it is so soft. No places to buy yarn here so all of my purchases are from the internet.

Because of how warm it is I have begun knitting socks. Of course it is too warm to wear them here. So my mom and sister will be getting them.
