As you may have noticed, we have a work day each month. Most months it is the first Sunday and we meet from 2-5 pm in Edmond. Every month is different, how many people come, and what exactly we do varies. But some elements are always the same… Some of us work on scarves, we visit with each other, and we package the completed scarves.
Though the meeting is scheduled for a 3-hour block of time, some people stop by for just a couple of minutes or half an hour or so, while others stay the whole time. One participant’s 2-year old daughter and husband usually stop by for a bit as well.
We’ve had one lady who wanted to be a part of Threads but didn’t knit or crochet or have time to learn right now. It’s been great to have her come package the scarves so that the rest of us can continue making them. Before she came a few of us would stop working on our current project and do the packaging. Now we can keep going!
At our June meeting it was neat to watch 2 different people learn new things. One lady admired a scarf donated by another and learned the pattern from her and started a new scarf with that pattern. Another was able to learn a new way to change colors of yarn without making a knot. It is so cool to be part of a group that is willing to share knowledge with one another. We also had a great time just talking and getting to know one another.
One person new to the group arrived with quite a few scarves she had made and another brought yarn to donate. You can see photos of the scarves we received this month in our Facebook album.
You just really never know what great things may happen at the work day. We’d love to see you soon at one of the meetings!
