The Ravelry thread for our discussion of the Red Scarf Project contest.

World Wide Spin in Public Day is September 18.

The New York Sheep and Wool Festival, otherwise know as Rhinebeck, will be October 16th and 17th at the Duchess County Fairgrounds.  I’ll be there.  Will you?  If so, let me know in the Rhinebeck thread in the Ravelry group so I’ll know whether enough of us will be there to warrant arranging a meet-up.

Events: Michigan Fiber Festival
