My sister scored sunny yarn in yellows, corals, and oranges for knitting ($7 for what you see in the photo.) She showed amazing restraint! I fully indulged and left the sale with fabrics, trims, felt, notions, beads, googly eyes, sequins and all manner of other fun things. Here are a few pics we took while sorting all of the goodies... This event is DEFINITELY on our calendars for next year.
If you're unfamiliar with the Textile Center, a National Center for Fiber Art, please peek at their website. They offer classes & workshops on a variety of fun topics like knitting & felting, sewing, design & creativity, as well as summer camps for children ages 6 to 16, and kids' classes. At their home in the Prospect Park neighborhood of Minneapolis they have a shop and library (you can also search their catalog of books online.) The "Textile Mobile" is their fun way to do community outreach, taking textile arts experiences on the road, and it's for hire!
What amazing, cool, or interesting community resources and organizations have you discovered of late? Please share so we can also check them out, or search for a comparable organization in our own community!!
Signing off on this sunny Tuesday evening - time to get outside (again!) Enjoy your evening, my friends.
