The 11th Annual Roanoke NoSoKnit is on Saturday, September 27, 2008 from10 am to 4 pm at the Claude Moore Education Complex of the Roanoke Higher Education Center. Please see the website for more information and to register; the location is limited to one hundred people.
This is a great knit-in and run, entirely, by volunteers. Donations are gratefully accepted and, generally, everyone receives a donated gift. If you're able, please send a small gift with a blurb regarding your business or spinning, yarn, etc. It's a wonderful way to get the word out to other Virginia knitters although knitters come from all over. Sue E., the founder, is a great gal and also runs a Caribbean knitting cruise every year.
All you need to attend is fill out the registration form, send in with $5 and, one the day of the event, take a donation for a charity. Boxed lunches are available for purchase or you may bring a bag lunch or go out for lunch. It's rather near the downtown square and there are many restaurants in the area. Most people tend to either bag or buy lunch so they won't miss out on any knitting fun. Several local knit shops are vendors so there will be buying opportunities as well.
