OkieFiber Slumber Party!!

I almost forgot to post about this. I'm for sure going to be there, (already sent in my registration $$) and I think if you live in the Oklahoma area you should come too!(I'm talking to you April in Broken Arrow!)
There is an emphasis on spinning, but there will be plenty of knitting/crochet time and a few of the classes are knitting-related. I know they're doing a socks on two circular needles class and a beginning continental knitting class...there may be some others. It would be a great thing to go to if you're a knitter and you've been thinking about learning to spin, but you don't know anyone who can teach you. It would also just be a nice getaway from the house to hang out with other fiber addicts weekend.

Where: Educational Building at the El Reno Fairgrounds, El Reno,Oklahoma which is half an hour west of OKC on I-40.

When: Oct 7 and 8, 2005 - Friday from noon on,Saturday til we leave
