What a summer! First re-visiting British arrived and then for
3 weeks in July, we hosted an English teacher,
Wu Ton (Toni) from Chongqing, China!

"Toni" (above) with stitchers, Crystal and Paula who were performing
at the Janesville Farmer's Market in July as UAA buskers.

We wish more people could experience the wonder,
the learning, and the friendships that can develop worldwide when we're
open to new experiences. This year, a new friendship has begun to
bloom between SnB'er Paula and friend Malcolm in Essex!
If you're interested in finding ane-friend, let me know and we'll see what
we can do so you can beginan international exchange through our
existing "circle of friends"!

Interested in attending the
Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival?
September 5-7 • Jefferson County Fairgrounds
It's that time of year again and those who have been before
KNOW this is THE event for stitchers in our area.
Want to car pool? Let us know...

Other activities and ideas are always welcome...

Help us set a September date for Farmer's Market sales...

Anyone interested in a SnB Reunion to encourage previous participants
(over 200 total now!) to return? Thoughts on a date?

Should we have an end-of-summer picnic?
Is it too early to look at our calendars and schedule
our annual winter holiday party?

Do you have ideas for speakers to invite?

Your ideas and thoughts to "grow" SnB are ALWAYS welcome.

Interested in learning a particular skill.
Is it time for another "knit or crochet-along"?
