There's a group of us that meet once a month in Queen Creek - we call ourselves the Yarn Yankers. We hang out for a few hours, show each other what we have been up to. Bring stuff to give away - teach each other new things. It's a lot of fun. Recently one of our members has been having some health issues and we haven't seen as much of her as we would like to.
Yesterday we had an impromptu gathering of a few of us and it was really nice to see them all.
Beverly had to try on my mothers shawl and show us her runway style
I had no idea how much difference it makes to get together with a few friends for a couple of hours and just talk about what we do with fiber. It's amazing how recharged I feel afterwards. The sense of community, of fitting in with your own small segment of society. Most of my life I have felt like an outsider. The kid on the sidewalk watching every one else do/have/be what I wanted. This little bit of time with them takes that "outsider" feeling away.
