  1. Hey Elise,
    I am officially volunteering…me (Billie) at least, more in the FAST group if they’re interested. I filled out a form for Kristi to get the pipe loom on ‘the list’ too. I am also volunteering to help with the loom if we choose to do that as a community weaving project.

    • What an amazing group. I spent Saturday afternoon in yarn stores in Fort Collins looking for things to make YoYos on my sweater – ideas abound! Many thanks to you.
