August! Ice Cream! YARN-O!!
What could be better than an ice cream social with your Guild friends? An ice cream social with YARN-O, and bears wearing sweaters! Join us in the lawn next to the church on Wednesday, August 3 for our annual August ice cream social. We’ll have a slightly different ice cream this year – we are going back in time to ice cream treats from an ice cream cart! Kind of like an ice cream truck without the annoying music – and you won’t have to sprint to catch it. There will be ice cream bars of many kinds, including some dairy free.
We will also dress the bears! But on a smaller scale – outside forces have conspired against Camp Erin, and their delivery of bears has been delayed by a short bit, so we won’t have all of the bears to dress – but there will be some! Bring your finished outfits, and see how they look.
And something new! A chance to de-stash a bit. We have located some organizations who will happily accept donations of yarn of all kinds – including partial skeins. Please include the ball band, if you have it, otherwise, please have it labeled by fiber content, and any other information you have. We will have separate bins for different fibers.
But YARN-O is the same! If you haven’t played before – think BINGO, but with a fiber-lovers flair. “Under the Y – worsted. Under the R – moths!” Once you have your YARN-O card and a crayon, you’re all set. First one to yell YARN-O gets a prize – a gift card to your choice of our business members. Didn’t get it yet? Don’t give up – we’ll keep playing until someone gets black out, yells YARN-O, and then gets another gift card.
You really don’t want to miss it – always a great time!
