I just finished up the final draft of the October edition of The Vermilion Bay Light! It's our Anniversary edition, folks, and it will arrive in your email inboxes on October 1, as well as at our website! Next month we will look back on a whole year of successfull, dedicated service to the fiber fans and friends of Lafayette and Acadiana (and beyond...as far away as Ireland and Sicily!). Be sure to celebrate with us all month, and especially on Tuesday, October 20th, the official 1 year date! Knit Cafe that night will be quite special for everyone. We'll also have an anniversary drawing for a fabulous VBYC gift basket of items useful to any fiber fan: notions, patterns, needles, and yarn. The Vermilion Bay Yarn Company offers everything that any fiber artisan needs, but it's also so much more. It's a community of diverse, friendly, and welcoming people who are eager to make friends and to connect with others in a unique, open, stress-free, and life-filled atmosphere. Come in, sit a spell, work on your project, catch up with friends, unload, and relax!
Hightlights from this month's VBL: Christmas gift project classes! A delicious hooded scarf: the "Pfeiffer Falls"; a cute cute crocheted sussy: a Jojoland cradle purse; Something every knitter should know how to produce: gloves -- and in the perfect weight for our area using sock yarn. Also, read an update about the Knitter's Cruise next October, find out about new yarns now in stock and ones making the journey to us, as well as amazing sale prices on many of the yarns you all love!
