Welcome to the Western State College Stitch 'n Bitch Livejournal Community!
Gunnison Colorado is a cold place. All the more reason to create beautiful and functional knitted goods, that of course rock out completely.
This Journal will be a place for young people in Gunnison and the surrounding area to post their finished pieces, questions, ideas, patterns, woes, worries, and ecstasies.
There are some excellent links in 'Community Info' section for patterns, tips, and other interesting knitting and crafting ideas.
I'm hoping that the group could meet once a month or bi-weekly (or even weekly if there's enough enthusiasm) for a knitting circle. We could meet at a local cafe or at someone's house, snack, knit, drink tea/coffee, and chat it up. Have a good time and help each other learn! Please, if you're interested, comment in this journal (make sure you leave a way for me to contact you!). With you help we can make this work!!
Maybe we could make it a school club, then get $$ for... ? The tea? The yarn? Stitch 'n Bitch Books? The world is our oyster.
If you have any questions at all please comment on this journal, email me at RachelRalston@gmail.com, or just join! No harm in taking the plunge!
