Update from Margie  (my apologies for the tardiness of this post)

Last Sat. we woke up to a dull, glumy day and we decided it was a good day to leave home and do a road trip.  About 10:00 a.m we headed south and ended up in Tonaskat, Wash. for lunch.  The purpose of our trip was to find the new yarn shop Marg H. told me about at guild, Bell, Hook and Spindle.  And right on main street is the most inviting window display in one of Tonasket's old, heritage buildings. 
Lindy Weber is a very upbeat, delightful gal & within a few minutes you feel like you've known her forever.  She is a quilter, knitter and just recently has started to spin fibre.  Tea is on all the time and her sitting area beckons you to sit awhile, relax and have a cup of tea.  She is certainly an asset to the little town of Tonasket.  Her husband is into restoring old spinning wheels and a room in their little shop is set up to display them.  
So for those of you who would like to do a road trip visiting Lindy in Tonasket is well worth the short drive across the border.

  1. Hi! Was so pleased to see this post and pix of our shop! I thought I would give an update. We closed the end of October 2015 so Lindy could get a new hip. The link given above is no longer alive, but we continue on at https://www.facebook.com/BellHookandSpindle
    And the creative group that meets every Saturday, The Charlotte Connection continues on in various members' homes. Just email us and we will let you know how to find us and join us!
    Love seeing all that your group is doing! Amazing talent!
