Grace, Nadine, and I had a fantastic time meeting local craft enthusiasts. Crafters young and old came to admire our collection of adorable amigurumis, especially our Baby Birds [pdf] and Poodle Princess [pdf]. Subscribers to our newsletter mailing list stopped by to say hello. Many people, pleasantly surprised to learn about our class offerings, picked up copies of our class schedule for themselves and their friends.
My favorite part of the day was offering inspiration to people who’d once given knitting or crochet a try, but hadn’t had the support they needed to continue. As we told each of them about the brush-up classes and free yarncrafting groups that we offer at LBYS, we watched their faces light up. “Maybe I’ll have to give it another try!” was the motto of the day. We can’t wait to see who signs up!
