One spot left on the bus...join us for a great day of fun with your knitting friends! We were full, but there is one spot that has opened up on the bus due to a family illness.
This Saturday beginning at 8:30 a.m.
Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
If you don't know what the shop hop is, here is a link to the flier for the event.
The BSKG decided to make it more fun by renting a bus to go from shop to shop--so that we can all knit and have fun together for the day rather than be scattered out into a number of cars...and everyone can knit! (except the bus driver)
It is $18, $8 additional for an optional lunch. Non-members, $24 plus $8.
The bus leaves Berkley at 8:30 a.m. and returns to Berkley at 5 pm. We will have lunch in Lake Orion--a box lunch from Poppyseed Deli.
8:15—Meet at Anderson Middle School
9:00–9:45—Shopping at Basketful of Yarn, Clarkston
10:15–11:45—Shopping at Heritage Spinning and Weaving, Lake Orion
11:45–12:30—Lunch in Lake Orion
1:00–2:00—Skeins on Main, Rochester
2:30–3:30—The Knitting Room, Birmingham
3:45–4:45—...have you any wool?, Berkley
5:00—Return to Anderson
There will be a few raffle prizes on the bus, a hat pattern from Tanya for knitting on the bus...start that charity hat, and a lot of fun and knitting together!
Send Kate P. or Tanya T. an e-mail, call or PM on Raverly.
Edited to add happy November birthday wishes to Rita Perrone, Erica Proschkow, Barbara McAuliffe and our fearless leader Tanya Thomann
