THEY CAME, THEY KNITTED, CROCHETED, SHARED, LAUGHED, TAUGHT, NETWORKED, LISTENED, LEARNED AND MOST OF ALL, HEARTS WERE CONNECTED! Yarn crosses ALL barriers; cultural, racial, economical and age. It is a bond that no one can break. A timeless life long skill that should be passed on from generation to generation.

A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OF THE PEOPLE WHO MADE THE 1ST ANNUAL SPRING YARN CRAFT EVENT A MAJOR SUCCESS! To the wonderful volunteers, outstanding exhibitors, and fabulous guests; Thank you so very much, and see you next year for the 2nd Annual Yarn Knit & Crochet Event! CAB

Don't forget to visit the Bags By CAB Yarn Shoppe - A Restoration place for Busy Moms! Grand Opening June 3, 2009 - Tamarac Square Mall.


  1. Well done! We didn't know what to expect and were so pleasantly surprised! It was super great meeting you, and we look forward to next year!

  2. How wonderful to see this!
    I live in Seattle and have not seen a single other blackwomon knitter here. Not one. Thought I was all alone!

    I'm a blackwomon knitter; began in November 2008 and have already put in around 600 hours, plus the yarn-buying expeditions, online research, etc.
    I just love knitting!
    I think I might be the only woman in my family who knits - we have many talented crochet artists. My maternal grandmother made a BEDSPREAD from the thin white crochet thread 'back in the day.' Humbling and amazing.
    Keep up the good work, sister knitter! I knew there had to be other blackwomon knitters out there ;-0)
