Guest Author, Dixie Swanson, at the Cashmere Goat - September 2013
We thank our guest author, Dixie Swanson (center), for joining our Book Club for Crafter's Meeting on September 14th. We had a wonderful turnout for the meeting. Here are a few of the attendees. Dixie spoke of her writing career and the ins-and-outs of publishing and editing. Her series of "The Accidental President Trilogy” is a wonderful read. Her character "Abby Adams” is a woman to be reckoned with and definitely has the "right stuff” to handle being President of the United States.

Team Hot Flash!
Did you ever want to try something terrifying saying "this should be fun" but really not knowing what to expect? These 4 gutsy women did just that, at the US Toboggan Championships held in Camden every year. Riding down the chute thinking "OMG what did I get myself into" was just one thought they had. Second from right is one of our knitters, Diane (with her family), who has a sense of adventure, decided knitting is safer.
Put six women in a room. Give them a foam pad, some wool, sharp needles and voila! This picture shows the result of a previous needle felting class run by Sue (the Staz) Stasiowski.
Kate picked up knitting in a New York minute! She made an adorable necklace which she wore proudly.
One-year-old August is modeling his first hand-knit sweater, made by his grandmother, Lynn. He looks so handsome!
Alyssa from Brooklyn, New York made a cowl made out of Berroco Souffle yarn. She's a beginning knitter!
