throwrug4:51pm: Here's more on that boycott against Sew Fast/Sew Easy that was posted about earlier...

http://freetostitchfreetobitch.org/

Here is the original SFSE website... I'd never heard of them before this, let alone bought their products, so I guess if I were to boycott them it would only be in theory or something. But if everything that's being said is true, what they've done is pretty crappy!

magnolia_coffee11:33am: Time for a par-tay
Just a reminder...

The 1st Annual Chattanooga Stitch 'n Bitch Holiday Throw Down will be held tomorrow night from 7pm until whenever I can get you bitches out of my house.

If you would like to bring food or drink, feel free. However, I have gone a bit nutso with the party planning, so do not feel obligated to bring anything. We will certainly let you in the door empty-handed.

If you need directions to my house, reply to this post, or drop me an email at magnolia(underscore)coffee(at)yahoo(dot)com.

Also, feel free to bring your knitting (or not). We won't force you to knit if you'd rather sit around and eat and chat instead.

porkandbananas4:51pm: um, I'm an idiot
Accidentally posted something in here that was supposed to go to my personal journal. I deleted it, but I apologize if it popped up on your friends list by mistake.

In other news, Heather, still waiting on those willy warmer images you promised to post...

magnolia_coffee5:40pm: Some unhappy crafting news
I realize this will interest two people (as the Heathers seem to think alike), but I was absolutely horrified to find out that the Print Gocco is being discontinued.

Is it wrong of me to think of spending money intended for other's christmas presents to snatch up one of the few remaining ones and a big heap full of inks, screens, and bulbs??

Anyway, a website announcing and attempting to prevent the inevitable gocco demise:

magnolia_coffee4:48pm: SnB Tonight: 12/13/05
In case you missed it, Jennifer, the owner of Stone Cup posted the following message in the comments for the last entry:

Stitchnbitch@StoneCup
Hi, It's Jennifer from Stone Cup. I hope you can get the word to your group that we have posted some winter hours (only until March!!) and we are closing at 10 p.m. instead of 11 p.m. through the week. I think is so cool that you meet at Stone Cup and I am flattered that you come there. Maybe you can start a bit earlier in the winter.?? We should name a coffee drink after you all! Thanks!

Jennifer Stone
jennifer@stonecup.com


I, personally, am planning on showing up a bit early tonight. (Sometime around 7:30.) I know not everyone will be able to do this, but I just wanted to give people a heads-up about the new hours.

Also, don't let me forget that we need to do some minor party planning for next week.

Can't wait to see everyone tonight! Happy Tuesday and happy knitting!

throwrug11:03pm: Hi everybody! I just joined and wanted to say howdy. I'm Rachael, mainly a crocheter but recently a somewhat clumsy-but-improving knitter, thanks to Cindy/killinmesmalls. She's really been talking up the Chattanooga SnB for quite a while now, so I figured it was time for me to join up with you in LJ-land. I'm at school in Atlanta but as soon as I get home for Christmas break I'm definitely going to accompany her to Stone Cup for some stitchin' and some bitchin'... two of my favorite activities!! You all sound like a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to it.

magnolia_coffee9:50pm: New Knitty
The winter Knitty is up. I haven't even gone to look at it yet, but since we can ALL knit now, I thought it was relevant.

(Congrats, Heather! I'm so proud of you!)

magnolia_coffee2:22pm: Address Request
I need addresses so I can send everyone a lovely Christmas card.

Reply by email so that everyone on the internet won't have your address and come hunt you down.


My email (so the robots can't grab it, please interpret as indicated) is magnolia(underscore)coffee(at)yahoo(dot)com.


Thanks!

magnolia_coffee9:33am: TGIT
You know the drill.

In case anyone has suffered an unfortunate head injury...

Tonight, 8pm, Stone Cup = Chattanooga's Best Stitch and Bitch.


Three other things for consideration:
1. Cindy mentioned in an earlier entry to her own journal (and Heather mentioned on here) that some of us might be harboring extra yarn. If you'd like to donate it to a good cause, we can use extra for the upcoming Handiworks event on December 10th (that some of you are already volunteering for). If you aren't coming to the event, or you'd like me to take extra yarn off your hands asap, you can bring it tonight, and it will promptly make its way into the hands of eager Girl Scouts.

2. Anybody want to have dinner tonight before 8? All this moving and working hasn't given me any time to buy groceries. Pitiful, I know.

3. FREE YARN to whoever can make the best argument for why I should dump my boyfriend. (Even those who haven't met him are eligible to compete.)

28th November 2005

mamapeanut4:23pm: Free yarn!

It takes a couple weeks but I got mine today. :)

22nd November 2005

magnolia_coffee11:07am: It's Tuesday Again...
Stitch and Bitch tonight @ 8pm @ The Stone Cup.

Come for the knitting, stay for the tittilating conversation.

On the agenda tonight:

1. How to snag new, scandalous boy toys.
2. How to avoid the biggest shopping day of the year. (By moving, of course.)

Also up for discussion...
I may be throwing a Get Drunk and Decorate party on Saturday. Are people going to be in town? Is anyone (of age, of course) interested in free alcohol in exchange for unpacking a couple boxes?

Comment and add your topics to the agenda.

See everybody tonight!

porkandbananas1:57pm: The Great Gilmore Girls event!
We're having a Stitch 'n Bitch field trip tomorrow night - Heather is hosting a Gilmore Girls Stitch 'n Bitch night at her house. Email me for details: amycgraham@gmail.com.

magnolia_coffee4:29pm: Tonight's Festivities
Tonight we will be meeting at 7pm at the Mudpie to celebrate Amy's Birthday. Be there or be square.

Presents are welcome (and encouraged) but not completely necessary. Please still come even if you're presentless. We won't hold it over your head forever... just until the next group birthday comes along.

Hope to see everyone there!

zinecure12:28pm: Hey guys!!! I have missed tuesdays at the coffee shop tremedously. We got back from vacation and had a sick baby and a sick kitty....everything is finally normal again. Are you still on for next week? I haven't seen any recent updates. (I haven't touched any of my projects in, well, a month. ***hangs head in shame***)

Look forward to the next SNB!!

13th September 2005

magnolia_coffee8:31am: Knitting and Geek Love
It's Tuesday again. (I thought it would never come.)

Please come out and join us at The Stone Cup on Frazier Ave at 8 pm.

And remember, it's the second tuesday of the month, so there's bound to be some primo-nerd-flirtation with everyone's favorite Linux users group.

6th September 2005

magnolia_coffee2:21pm: Tuesday: Now with more KNITTING!
I'll make this short and sweet.

In case you've been bumped on the head, it's already Tuesday again. Therefore, there will be Stitch n' Bitch at Stone Cup on Frazier @ 8pm.

30th August 2005

magnolia_coffee10:26am: Sleep Deprived, but still knitting.
Good morning, fellow Stitch and Bitchers.

We'll be having our weekly meeting tonight at 8 pm at The Stone Cup downtown on Frazier Avenue.

I know a lot of our regulars will be absent, but we will still be meeting, come hell, high water, or hurricanes.

Hope to see you there!

porkandbananas12:41pm: i heart tuesdays
Stitch 'n Bitch tonight at 8:00 at the Stone Cup! Be there or be square!

17th August 2005

magnolia_coffee8:41am: Scarf Pattern from last night (as requested)
The scarf I brought last night is a variation on this pattern:

http://naiveknitting.typepad.com/naive_knitting_blog/2005/03/knit_report_ech.html

My version was knit with 3 repeats of the arrowhead lace pattern, instead of five.

I used 1 skien of Koigu KPPPM (approximately 180 yards of fingering/sock weight yarn). Hope this helps if anyone wants to make one, too.

16th August 2005

magnolia_coffee8:59am: SnB Tonight!
Just a reminder...

It's Tuesday again, and we'll be meeting tonight at 8 pm at The Stone Cup on Frazier Ave.

Anybody new planning on coming? We'd love to have you there.

And somebody needs to do a yarn dance to make sure my KnitPicks order gets here before tonight! I've finished the scarf I started last Tuesday, my sweater still isn't fit for travel, and I don't have any projects to work on. Terribly sad story, I realize. (And I know we were all so looking forward to playing with my new Denise needles. Or maybe that was just me.)

Can't wait to see everyone tonight. Have a lovely Tuesday.

rengetsu2:02pm: Hi!
Hey guys, while I don't think I'll be able to make the Stitch 'n Bitch this evening, I'm going to try and come next week if I can manage. My mom and I are having dinner with a friend of hers this evening, but next week I should be free..

anyway, I just thought I'd tell you guys about this thing I got an email about a few days ago:

Just wanted to tell you about afghans for Afghans, a humanitarian and educational people-to-people project that is sending hand-knit and crocheted blankets to the beleaguered people of Afghanistan.

Here is where you can read program details and find out how to get
involved:

Americans are making ... afghans for Afghans! Join us! afghans for Afghans!

porkandbananas10:32am: Reminder: The Chattanooga Stitch 'n Bitch group is meeting tonight, August 9, at eight o'clock at the new Stone Cup cafe on Frazier Avenue.

All are welcome!
