The Love Lane First Friday Block Party has been a popular event since early summer (see the FB page Love Lane First Fridays) and we are happy that this event will continue through December. The next one will be on Friday, November 6, from 6-9pm.

This month we will again be hosting Southampton Soap Co. INSIDE the shop, if it's too cold outside. We will also have hot cider and other refreshments, and the shops up and down the block will each be doing their own thing and hosting guest vendors. Lots of food, music and beverages!

At the same time we will be introducing The Sock Circle. If you're on our mailing list, look for our email announcing the official kick off of this new group, which includes a mini-tutorial from 5:30-6:30pm. Amy will be teaching a great cast-on for socks. After class, join the party!

If you're not on our list, you can join from this website. You can also check back here next week, when I will be posting more details about The Sock Circle.

I know it's not even Halloween yet, but Christmas is coming, and maybe you'd like to shop in this festive atmosphere. It's really not too soon to start collecting gifts, or materials if you're planning to stitch your gifts. We have lots of ideas, materials and kits for quick and fun projects.

Hope to see you soon!
