A Doris' WEEKEND!!

Remember the other day
I said "
just as soon as I'm done writing out my WIM list" I'd inquire with Doris' as to the next time she could spend some more time in Connecticut?

As I was enjoying flipping through her new book again, trying to make some decisions as to which will be the first pattern I try, I decided to check my email.  And there it was; an email from Doris!  Doris had contacted me to thank Doris' visit to Knit Toghether (now closed) in December 2006)me for showing her new book to the two CGOA Chapters! 
 Although my WIM list wasn't done (hey, you try writing with a sprained wrist!), I decided to email her back and inquire if she'd like to come and spend more time in Connecticut.
She's game!  {{YEEHAW!!}}
So here's the agenda that is nearly set in stone:
        Saturday, November 10; from 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
                        Location:  Knitting Central, Westport, CT
        Sunday, November 11; from 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
                        Location: A Stitch In Time, Bethel, CT
                           and from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM
                        Location: The Happily Hooked on Crocheting Club monthly meeting from 1:00 - 4:00 PM
                                       Danbury Hospital, Danbury, CT

"I was just thinking about Doris the other night. She always has on something I love when I see her. And I agree that she designs for everyone. I can't wait for this book, thanks for the review. BTW the two hour drive from No. NJ isn't much to visit with Doris. Does your CGOA chapter welcome visitors?" M. Goshen in NJ

Our CGOA Chapter loves visitors!  So, yes, please do come and join in the fun of hanging out with crochet designer Doris Chan and a bunch of folks who just LOVE to crochet!  And if you'd like to make it a weekend event, including visiting various yarn shops and taking in beautiful fall foliage, there are many hotels in the Danbury area!  :)
