I live down in Central IL, near Champaign...but there was someone i talked to a while ago up in Rockford too...they were talking about a LYS up there that I plan to visit and meet up with her at. I think I've got her name saved in my PMs.

How fun. I haven't been able to find a time to go up there...it's crazy right now here because I have several volunteer events I'm in charge of...after the middle of May things should calm down some and then I hope to get a chance to go up there!

I'm near Schaumburg! About 30 miles west of Chicago. I find it hard to believe there are so few of us on this great board.

There is a really nice yarn shop in Marengo called The Fold. I was very impressed by the variety. Here is a link to some photos I took:

I'm near Edwardsville. :) I think there's a lady here from Fairview Heights, too. It's kind of cool to know there are people on the board so close to where I'm at.

I'm in beautiful Crystal Lake, Illinois. Moved out here 15 years ago, just before my daughter was born. I have loved it since I got here.

 

I'm also in the town of the big Controversy, the using of Crystal Lake for Chicago's Gay Games Rowing contest. To me, people are people and if they want to use our lake, we should welcome them to our area. After all, they will be spending money to participate, to eat in restaurants, etc. so why not welcome them.

 

And besides, it is only one day. We can let them do it. I am just hoping there are no problems at the beach that day. My daughter is a lifeguard and will be on duty.

I don't know why I didn't see this thread before.

 

I'm in DeKalb, formerly of Rockford/Rockton. We have a SnB that meets in DeKalb on alternate Mondays. Is there a Rockford stitching group? It would be fun to get some stitchy time in when I visit my folks.

 

Cheers!

Kathy

Not that it helps much NOW, but I grew up in Lemont and lived in Joliet for most of my adult life... until I decided to move alllllllllll the way to England!
