Today I'm busy preparing for The Big E.
The Big E stands for The Eastern States Exposition and is a huge 17-day state fair held in West Springfield, MA
I will be there, with my family and CGOA Chapter members on the day known as "Connecticut Day," which this year falls on this Wednesday, September 22. We'll be there in the building known as "The New England State Building" displaying various types of crochet and providing free lessons -- complete with free hook & yarn.
If you go, be sure to stop by and introduce yourself -- we're hard to miss in our purple Club attire. Also, be sure to check out all the fiber arts that ribboned at the CraftAdventure event that took place this past August ... including my daughter's "Blue Ribbon & Best of Show - Junior Division" entry! (Can you tell I'm one proud Mama?!?)
With this in mind, it may be a few days until my next journal entry ... but you never know, I just may phone one in and share in the excitement of this event!
