Happy Holidays from the Sweet Stitchin' Betties to all our rad readers out there. Tonight was a blast, and for those of you not there, here's some highlights of what you missed:

a perennial favorite topic: how hot Johnny Depp is! (very seems to be the consensus)
*how addictive Diana Gabaldon is
*Gold Coast Huggers (see below)
*how fantastic the yarn from Art Fibers is
*how strong Becky's Long Island Ice Teas were
*how disturbing some of our co-workers are
*how crappy home owner associations can be
*and many many more things!

The Betties have taken on a new role in charity knitting by becoming the S. Florida contact for the Head Huggers. Here are the details:

The Gold Coast Huggers is a local satellite group of the national Head Huggers, a volunteer organization of crafters that make chemo caps for people who have suffered hair loss due to chemotherapy, brain surgery, burn wounds, etc. We create and distribute caps to hospitals, oncology offices, hospices, etc in the Gold Coast region of Florida. The Gold Coast Huggers was formed by members of the Sweet Stitchin' Betties of Broward County, a knitting group that is involved with charity knitting projects. Email us at if you can help!
