The Day of the Dead Celebration
Ten years in the shop have shown that yarn brings us together during all of life’s transitions. Together we rejoiced when you created your grandchild’s first sweater, we held hands and cried when your project helped you through an illness, we helped each other find projects to keep us sane in this crazy world. Now we want to acknowledge that death is also a part of life. Join us to listen, to laugh, to eat and to cry. Bring pictures, stories, and food to share. Help us spend the day celebrating life.
Saturday, November 1, all day from 10 am to 5 pm. Come for a few minutes or for the day.
We have never done anything like this before so mistakes will be made including this one. Sue went to Georgetown and brought this beautiful candle to the shop for the celebration. Lia pointed out that this was not a normal Day of the Dead candle, but we felt it fit into the theme of the day.
We also have another more normal candle--to celebrate our handiness.
