Knitting Event at Borders Books!

Lorna Miser at Borders Books

Mention the name Lorna to a knitter and everyone knows that you are talking about, our very own, Lorna Miser. Lorna is not only a local knitting celebrity but she is also the Camellia City Stockinettes President, the original founder of Lorna's Laces hand-dyed yarns, a designer and an author. With all her claim to fame the best part about Lorna...is she is still just like the girl next door!

Borders Books in Folsom held a book signing with Lorna on Saturday July 11, 2009 for her new book Faith, Hope, Love, Knitting. This wasn't your typical book signing event though. Lorna and Borders invited all local knitters to attend this special book signing event to knit. A "shout out" even went out to the Camellia City Stockinettes to join the knitting fun. Were you there?

A Knitting Circle

Many enthusiastic knitters came out to Borders to support Lorna and show everyone how "hip" it is to knit! There were at least 15 to 20 members of the Camellia City Stockinettes spotted at Borders that busy Saturday afternoon. There were other familiar knitting faces in the crowd (Sally and Toni) and some new faces (Jacki and Lisa), too. We hope perhaps some new knitting friendships were made that will lead to more local knitters joining the Camellia City Stockinettes!

Congratulations Lorna on your Borders Books event!
