August Events at Coastal Purl
We've got a couple of fun events coming up this month at Coastal Purl. First up is a trip to ECSU's Planetarium! I've been to the show and it is really fun. We have the whole theater to ourselves and it seats 60 so feel free to bring friends and family. It's 9:30-10:30 Thursday Aug 11. Let's plan to meet at the shop at 9 and consolidate cars for ease of parking on campus. There's no admission free - just an hour of air-conditioned star-studded (hehe) entertainment!
After that, same day, we'll be celebrating Renee's retirement (and it happens to be her birthday!) Join us for a fun send off! If you plan on joining us, please shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so we have an accurate headcount.
The following Thursday 8/18 is the third in our Knit Night Out series at Ghost Harbor. If you're around please join us - it's great fun. It's held rain or shine - inside if the weather isn't optimal, outside in Pailin's Alley if it is. Bring a folding camp chair if the weather is nice - we've found those a little more comfortable for knitting.
I've got some fun yarns coming in for Fall in another month or so. In the meantime, I also still have lots of seasonal and seasonless yarn selections and of course many fun patterns to share.
Escape the heat and come in to knit! That yard work can wait!
One last thing - a few of us are working up ideas to participate in Elizabeth City's first Brahaha (Sept 17 at 7 Sounds Brewery) - a fundraiser to improve breast healthcare and provide FREE mammograms to the area’s uninsured and underinsured population. We need to decorate a 38 C bra to enter and it must be submmitted by Sept 1. If you're interested and feeling creative, please contact me ASAP at the shop or email@example.com
