Houston Fiber Fest 2017

There’s more to Houston Fiber Fest than just classes and shopping; there’s also the fun of meeting new friends! The Meet-Up Table in the atrium (look for the balloons!) is the place to be. There will be knit- and crochet-alongs, stitch marker swaps, demos, and lots of opportunities for you to talk with other Houston area fiber enthusiasts who share your interests. When the vendor hall closes on Friday and Saturday evening, gather at the table to coordinate group outings to local restaurants.

SoCK Mtg – New Year! New Technique! Cont’d.

SoCK is continuing its annual New Year! New Technique! Craftsy class.  We are watching the “My First Lace Shawl” Craftsy class.  Last month we watched Lesson 1.  This month we’ll be watching Lesson 2 and 3. 

You do not need to purchase the class to attend the meetings, but if you want it to view on your own time, or if you want the pattern, you do need to purchase the class. Make sure to purchase it from the Craftsy link on the KANG website. (KANG gets a portion of the proceeds for every class purchased that way).
