Fiber Factory October Classes

A whole slew of classes are available for October.  Karen has been out of town, so we are posting the blog a little late.  

HOORAY! We have a road again!
 Construction on Main Street is winding down. We have pavement, parking
and left turns again. There is a little more work, but the contractors will be out of the downtown area October first. No more big vehicles and pounding jackhammers!

There will still be construction on Main Street east and west of the downtown mile, but that can be avoided by traveling on University, 1st Street or 1st Avenue.

Red Scarf Project 2014!

Once again, The Fiber Factory and One Planet Yarn and Fiber will join together this holiday season in supporting the Orphan Foundation of America’s Red Scarf Project: Foster Care for Success Program. Children that go through the foster care system often face challenges getting the education they need to lead happy and productive lives.
The Foster Care for Success program gives scholarships to further the education of kids who would not have the money to continue their education. In 2005 the Foster Care for Success program began sending the kids that were attending college or vocational schools a Valentine’s Day care package. These kids often don’t have family or parents who would send care packages to them. So, to show that someone cares – packages are sent with treats including a red hand knitted or crocheted scarf.
Last year our combined efforts netted 36 beautiful and varied crocheted and knitted scarves, one more than the year before.  Let’s see if we can top that this year! Come in and purchase your yarn and ask for the Red Scarf discount for this project. Drop off your scarves by December 6th! We'll plan a little party for the evening.
RED SCARF PROJECT GUIDELINES: Size: approximately 60” long and 5” to 8” wide. Scarves should be long enough to be wrapped around the neck, with tails long enough to be tied in the front. Style: Think unisex collegiate. Fringes are optional. Your scarf should drape, tie easily and be soft. Color: Red! However, this could mean burgundy, cherry, russet, red stripes with other colors, or multicolored hues including red. Finished & tagged: Yarn ends should be securely sewn in. For a personal touch, attach a tag saying “Handmade for You” with your first name, city, and group affiliation, if any. Donors have also included washing instructions, messages of encouragement, gift cards, and more.

The Yarn of the Month for October is Zen Yarn Garden Serenity Silk. There will be a picture on the web page as soon as Terri allows someone to open the box.

Marianated Yarns trunk show n November!
There are also plans for a Fiesta Yarns Trunk Show, a book signing and a "Let's Do Lunch KAL" where we pair up a KAL with a Lunch Special at one our favorite downtown restaurants. We are working out the details for dates.

 We are thinking about starting up a few Friday Night out activities. Looking for feedback on what if any activities you would participate in.
And in spite of any and all rumors to the contrary, we are still here to help and encourage you to the completion of a successful project, and to serve your yarny needs. Come in and visit with us for a bit.
