Friday Night Knitting Club signing at Charlotte Yarn!

From Remi at Charlotte Yarn!

Hi everyone,There's a new book coming out in January that I think you'll enjoy reading. It's called The Friday Night Knitting Club and has been described as "a charming and moving novel about female friendship and the experiences that knit us together-even when we least expect it."

We are lucky to have the book's author Kate Jacobs, come to Charlotte Yarn on Friday, February 9th. I would like to invite you to meet Kate for a reception and book signing from 1pm-3pm. Kate Jacobs will read and answer your questions about her book.

The book has garnered mentions in upcoming issues of Glamour, Redbook, and OK! magazine.

Here's a recent review:
From Booklist"Georgia Walker's entire life is wrapped up in running her knitting store, Walker and Daughter, and caring for her 12-year-old daughter, Dakota. With the help of Anita, a lively widow in her seventies, Georgia starts the Friday Night Knitting Club, which draws loyal customers and a few oddballs. Darwin Chiu, a feminist grad student, believes knitting is downright old-fashioned, but she's drawn to the club as her young marriage threatens to unravel. Lucie, 42, a television producer, is about to become a mother for the first time--without a man in her life. Brash book editor KC finds her career has stalled unexpectedly, while brilliant Peri works at Walker and Daughter by day and designs handbags at night. Georgia gets her own taste of upheaval when Dakota's father reappears, hoping for a second chance. The yarn picks up steam as it draws to a conclusion, and an unexpected tragedy makes it impossible to put down. Jacobs' winning first novel is bound to have appeal among book clubs." Kristine Huntley

Copies of The Friday Night Knitting Club will be available at Charlotte Yarn the week of January 29th. If you purchase a book from the shop, you are automatically entered in a drawing to receive an autographed totebag signed by Kate Jacobs and filled with goodies.
Take a sneak peek at the first chapter at

Please call me at 704-373-7442 or email me at if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you on Feb 9th - and don't forget to tell your friends!

Hope to see everyone there!!

Books-A-Million is the Place to Be!

See all the fun we have? Just because "Lost" is back on TV doesn't mean we've stopped meeting, it just means we leave aruond 8:45pm to make it home in time to watch it. Come on out and join us!

The show is Thursday 10-6, Fri/Sat 10-8 and Sun 11-6. An hour block is all they are asking for, but you can stay longer. Its fun!

Wednesday 9/13/2006 meet - RSVP?

Just wanted to doublecheck on whether or not we were going to be rsvp-ing on here for the sit-n-knit / stitch-n-b*tches.

For Wednesday 9/13, I'm afraid I have to say I might not make it. I was going to, until my husband was told to go to a meeting that would last until 7 pm, and that I had to go instead to the homeowners' association meeting for our neighborhood.

Since I would rather have a root canal than attend the HOA meeting, I don't think I need to say that I am one ticked off bunny.

Fingers crossed that hubby's meeting gets cancelled.

I have been a naughty knitter recently and not made it to knitting recently. And that isn't going to change for the next month. I am in town, BUT I have accepted a position at SCarowinds for the month of October and we have rehearsal almost every Tuesday and Wednesday until the end of September. I am looking forward to seeing you all again and making it out for knitting. If you have a free weekend night in October, come out to scarowinds. it looks like it is going to be one heck of an event this year!!!!
