Therefore, we will be gathering on Saturday, March 17th. I know, I know ... It's also St. Patrick's Day. So feel free to bring and/or wear something green!! ;)
I will be observing the occasion by spinning in public. If you are in the area and I would love it if you'd join me! I will be at

I realize that I say this every time ... but I love the feeling that no matter where we are, we all love sharing our passion for the fiber arts with each other. So ...
Even though many of you are too far away to join us in person. Please join us in spirit, comment and tell us what you will be spinning, and share a picture or two!! ;D
