    I’m not an organizer, so I don’t know what they plan to do officially, but I’d be happy to help teach people to knit, crochet, spin, or weave. I have it on my schedule and plan to be there. I’ll probably just take some knitting the first time since that’s less effort than hauling my loom or spinning wheel. See you there!

    Hey Fiberistas and Fiberista-wannabes!

    I’m Susan, the organizer, and I’m so excited about the first meeting of the Irvington Fiberistas next week.

    Veronica, we aren’t offering any formal instruction but, if Tina’s willing to help you get started, that’s great! Thanks, Tina! I can probably find some yarn and needles you can use on Thursday, Veronica, to get you started. I know there are lots of knitting classes throughout Indy; I can highly recommend the teachers at Mass Ave. Knit Shop in Fountain Square. You might also try the craft and fabric stores like Michaels or Hancock.

    Can’t wait to see everyone on the 4th!

    We had a great turn-out for the first Fiberista meet-up. The next one is this Thursday, Oct. 2, 6-8 pm at the Irvington Library.

    Hope you can join us!
