I had a coupon for 25% off my total purchase at Joann Fabrics, so although it was months before I need it, I took advantage of the sale and bought all the yarn I plan to use for the Richburg Community Weaving Project.
My choices raised some questions while I was standing in line, and again while I was checking out. It’s certainly not common to buy a few hundred dollars worth of yarn – one skein of each, in a variety of colors, textures, and weights. I simply said it was for a community project and that people would get to choose what they wanted to weave with. I didn’t think I could reasonably explain the whole thing in the checkout line. Besides, my little dog was waiting in the car for me, and it’s certainly not his favorite thing to do.
It will be so much fun, and so interesting, to see what people choose, and if the music has any impact. We’ll have one evening of classical, one of old rock & roll, and and African drum quartet to close out the season.
I hope the weather is pleasant each of the evenings.
