My LYS-Local yarn shop SIFU Design Center and Fine Yarns

I took a beaded stitch marker class  at my local yarn shop over the weekend.  It was a blast!  I do enjoy getting together with like minds. I had already had a bazillion beads fron and Etsy Destash  We brought our own beads if we had them however the class did include supplies.  Lisa is an amazing and talented teacher..er uhm SIFU!  Whens the last time you’ve been in your local yarn shop?  Has it been that long?  I had not visited Lisa in @ years shame on me!  The only way to keep our fiber hobbies alive are to spend our dollars in Brick and Morter as well as we I do online.  This was my third class at Sifu Design Center and Fine Yarns and for sure won’t be my last.

I got me some brand new handmade stitchmarkers, yall!  Woo! Plus 2 Bonus shawl pins!  I have never worn a shall pin but since I’ve made 2 I will be wearing them.
