NO SnB on Saturday (12/24) nor on Monday (12/26)
Thursday (12/29) will be as usual but NO gathering on Monday (1/2 - Go, Badgers!)

The regular schedule (with the Monday move to Italian House and new time of 1-3PM) will resume thereafter in 2012.

Remember to get your 2011 FOs posted for the year-end tally!

Thanks for all your support,
the fun and the joy of good friends
throughout 2011!



Beginning Monday, January 9, 2012 the Janesville Area SnB will be stitching away the afternoon (1-3) at the Italian House (1603 E. Racine, Janesville, WI). While we appreciate all the hospitality and great food that the SpeakEasy has provided us over the past few years, their lack of posting against weapons (under Wisconsin's new concealed carry law) has forced us to relocate to an environment that is posted. If you have a fiber/stitching project that you don't have to "plug in", want to learn a new skill from talented stitchers (knit, crochet, spinning, quilting, etc.), or simply want to enjoy some new stitching companions, please join us and say thanks to Edmund (owner)!
