Hello!! Welcome to the Norfolk, Virginia knitting and crochet group. This group is open to all fiber artists in the Tidewater area. The meeting spot is Elliot's Fair Grounds on the corner of Colley and Baldwin so please come and join us for a cup of fair trade coffee and the company of other craftsters every Tuesday evening from 7pm to 9pm (or later if we choose!). Hope you can come out and meet us!
The purpose of this group is to have a place online where we can post meeting times and attract new knitters or crocheters. The site is meant to be interactive so, please take some time to look around at the links and the database section and feel free to add your favorites for the rest of us to see.
The Norfolk SnB has many members who have joined with several other knitting groups in the international boycott of Australian wool. Currently, most wool farmers in Australia use mulesing to control flystrike in their flocks. Mulesing is the act of cutting away large chunks of flesh around the tail area without anesthesia. There are several good alternatives to mulesing, but the farmers have yet to give up this horrible practice. Please visit www.savethesheep.com for more information on this campaign and what you can do to help.
