This week we are cancelling ACK, so to speak. We will not be meeting in Astoria on Thursday. Instead, we will meet at the Smiley's Hotel Yarn Sale on Thursday December 2, 2010 at 6:15pm (I will be arriving at approximately 6:30pm), or get there earlier if you like, and take your time shopping! The Yarn Sale will be at the Holiday Inn located on 57th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues. After we finish emptying out our wallets, we will drag our garbage bags full of yarn to a nearby diner and eat together.
Please let me know by 5pm on Thursday December 2, if you will be joining us for the sale. This way I know who to expect and look for at the sale.
The Smiley's Hotel Yarn Sale is a big deal for knitters and crocheters in the NYC area. They have large bags of novelty and good quality yarn for very good deals (like 10 balls of yarn in one bag, for $20-30, for example). Think, sweater and blanket / afghan projects. :) See the Smiley's page for more information:
Due to the holidays, ACK will only be meeting two more times in 2010!! Where has the year gone!?!??! Get out your projects that you want to complete as gifts, or get out that project that has been sitting around for too long, and you want to finish before the year is up!
December 9, 2010 at 8pm -- Lower Level of the Beer Garden at 24th Avenue
December 16, 2010 at 8pm -- Igloo Cafe near Ditmars Blvd.
I really enjoy being part of this group, and spending time with you all. We all learn so much from each other, and I look forward to it every week. Thank You!
If I do not see you, I hope you have a great month, and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!! SEE YOU ALL SOON!!
