Welcome back to my blog series on what it's like to join a local CGOA chapter! I joined the Prince William County chapter of CGOA back in January, and I've been writing about what the experience has been like. You can find links to the whole series on this post.
Honestly, I've been having so much fun with this venture that's it's been quite difficult to prioritize my top 10 reasons to join. However, next month our chapter is excited about the opportunity to welcome Lion Brand® Yarn Ambassador Shira Blumenthal to our monthly guild meeting!
This is absolutely an opportunity that we could not take advantage of without being involved in a local chapter, as Lion Brand requires a minimum of 100 guests before they'll send their ambassador out for an event. And not only will we all have the chance to play with Lion Brand yarns, rumor has it each attendee will get a special gift.
If you live in the Northern Virginia area and would like to join us, there's still time to sign up--you need not be a member of our chapter for this event. Here are all the details you need to know:
When: Monday, May 16, 2016, 7pm-9pm
Where: Manassas Church of the Brethren, 10047 Nokesville Rd, Manassas, VA 20110
If interested, RSVP to email@example.com no later than May 1st to reserve your spot! Friends and family are also welcome.
