    I was at the event last night and really enjoyed hearing you speak and seeing the wonderful work you’re doing. So inspiring! Thank you.

    I really enjoyed Frau Fiber at MOCA in Denver on Tuesday night. How refreshing in our throw-away society.
    I would very much like to start a Denver chapter. How do I do accomplish this? I think this would really take off here.

      Hello Linda, what you need to start is a place to meet, and a chapter organizer or two, who are willing to facilitate instructions, etc. The goal is the event is free, but the NYC chapter does charge $5 for meeting space. I will provide, instructions, banner and SR patches for participants.

    Linda – I’ll join your Denver chapter!
