04:43 pm - SnBProv this week
Because of the holiday, I think that Bagel Gourmet is going to be closed this week, so tomorrow (Monday Feb 16) we'll be meeting at Panera at Providence Place Mall. It's on the same level as the storefronts that face Waterplace Park, sort of where the Borders used to be.

Also because of the holiday, some of us are planning to get there a little early, around 5 or 5:30 pm.

Hope to see you there!

Next week will (weather permitting) be back to normal at Bagel Gourmet Cafe.

11:05 am - Tonight: Panera at the mall / next week: Bagel Gourmet Cafe
Our usual meeting place, Bagel Gourmet Cafe, is closed for Martin Luther King day, so tonight we'll meet at Panera at the Providence Place Mall. I expect to be there around 5:30 or 6 pm. Hope to see you there!

Next week (and the weeks after that), I expect things will be back to normal, and we will be back at Bagel Gourmet Cafe (222 Richmond Street in Providence).

For further discussion and announcements, see the SnBProv Facebook group.

12:07 pm - Planning the SnB anniversary party on Monday May 12
The first SnB ever was on April 27, 2004, so we're coming up on our ten year anniversary ... crazy! So as tradition requires, we're planning to meet at Gregg's for dinner, knitting, and door prizes.

The details are:

Where: Gregg's, 1303 North Main Street, Providence, RI
When: Monday May 12, 6:30 pm (people may meet for drinks earlier)

If you plan to come, please let me know so I'll have a reasonable idea of how big a reservation to make. (I'll call the reservation in earlier that day.)

If you haven't come to SnB in a while, this is a perfect time to catch up with everyone, and if you've never been to SnB, this is a great way to get to know everyone. What I'm saying is: You should come to this.

11:29 am - SnBProv moving to Bagel Gourmet Cafe
Three Sisters is going to be closed Monday nights, so we're switching venues. For now, at least, we'll be back at Bagel Gourmet Cafe. I think we'll continue to meet there for at least a little while, but will post if there's any change in plans.

Bagel Gourmet Cafe is inside the Brown Medical Education Building at the corner of Ship and Richmond Streets in the Jewelry district. I'll plan to get there around 6:30 pm.

In addition to bagels they have Mexican food, sandwiches, and actually kind of a variety of other food.

As always, crafters of all descriptions and experience levels are welcomed, and there aren't any dues or anything like that.

Hope to see you there!

12:40 pm - SnBProv meeting on Mondays starting TONIGHT
Sorry for the late notification.

Starting tonight, SnBProv will be meeting every Monday at Three Sisters at 1074 Hope Street in Providence, near the end of Blackstone Boulevard and the Pawtucket line. I generally should be there around 6:30 pm.

There's some construction currently which complicates things a bit, but it should be possible to park in the lot behind Three Sisters, or on the street nearby.

As always, you can see the latest announcements and discussion on the Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/17629716707/

Crafters of all types and skill levels are welcome, and there are no fees or anything like that. Hope to see you there!

12:18 pm - At Lippett Park/Three Sisters tonight
Tonight we'll be meeting at Lippett Park on Hope Street in Providence near the Pawtucket border.

The weather is looking questionable, so I think most likely we'll end up at Three Sisters across the street. The address there is 1074 Hope Street in Providence.

There is on-street parking, and if we are at Three Sisters there is also a parking lot behind the building. I plan to get there around 6:30 pm.

We'll continue meeting here for a while, I think. I'll post if our plans change.

As always, crafters of all descriptions and experience levels are welcomed, and there aren't any dues or anything like that.

• Where: Gregg's, 1303 North Main Street, Providence, RI
• When: Wednesday May 22, 6:30 pm (people may meet for drinks earlier)

If you plan to come, please let me know so I'll have a reasonable idea of how big a reservation to make. (I'll call the reservation in earlier that day.)

12:26 pm - Tomorrow at Lippett Park/Three Sisters
With the turn of the seasons, and a nice forecast in the offing, we're going to try meeting outside for the first time this year!

You should be able to find us at Lippett Park, which is on Hope Street in Providence near the Pawtucket border. When it gets dark, or if the weather looks bad, we will move to Three Sisters, which is across the street from Lippett Park at 1074 Hope Street.

There is on-street parking, and if we end up at Three Sisters there is also a parking lot behind the building. I plan to get there around 6:30 pm.

I think we'll probably keep meeting here through the summer, so unless I post otherwise, assume that that's the case. You can always check the Facebook group for last-minute updates.

12:50 pm - No SnB this week; back to normal next week
Most or all of the regulars are otherwise occupied this week, so it looks like we'll be skipping SnB.

Next week things should be back to normal and we will be meeting at Bagel Gourmet Cafe on Richmond Street in Providence as usual.

You can check out the SnBProv Facebook page to see if there's any new discussion on either of these points.

Hi all,

Pretty much all of the regulars have a conflict with SnB this week, so we'll skip it. Next week we'll be back at Bagel Gourmet Cafe as usual -- it sounds like a bunch of people are planning to come then. Sorry for any inconvenience.

11:48 am - Knitsgiving next week
Continuing a tradition started in 2010, some of us are going to have pre-Thanksgiving dinner at Gregg's on North Main Street next week (Wednesday November 21). I'll get there at 6:30 pm though some people may get there sooner for drinks. If you're interested in joining us, let me know so I can make a reservation.

The address is 1303 North Main Street, Providence, RI 02904. The menu is online at https://greggsusa.com/menu .

If you want to see who else is going and when other people plan to get there, I recommend the Facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/groups/17629716707/

Next week we should be back at the Bagel Gourmet Cafe as usual.

(Note: we're not planning on door prizes or anything like that; that normally happens at the SnB anniversary party, which isn't until the spring.)

11:04 am - Bagel Gourmet Cafe on Wednesday
With the days getting shorter, meeting outside isn't working as well, so this week we'll be back at the Bagel Gourmet Cafe inside the Brown Medical Education Building at the corner of Ship and Richmond Streets in the Jewelry district. I'll plan to get there around 6:30 pm.

In addition to bagels they have Mexican food, sandwiches, and pizzas.

As always, crafters of all descriptions and experience levels are welcomed, and there aren't any dues or anything like that.

If there's another place people want to suggest meeting at until next summer then feel free to comment or otherwise contact me. Otherwise, we will plan to continue meeting at Bagel Gourmet Cafe.

02:53 pm - This week at Lippett Park/Three Sisters
This week we'll try meeting again at Lippett Park, which is on Hope Street in Providence near the Pawtucket border. When it gets dark, or if the weather looks bad, we will move to Three Sisters, which is across the street from Lippett Park at 1074 Hope Street.

There is a farmer's market in the park until 6 pm, so some of you may wish to arrive early and do some shopping. I will probably get there around 6:30 pm. You may wish to bring a chair to sit outside. (I will try to have one or two extra chairs in my car.)

There is on-street parking, and if we end up at Three Sisters there is also a parking lot behind the building.

I think we'll probably keep meeting here through the summer, so unless I post otherwise, assume that that's the case. You can always check the Facebook group for last-minute updates.

As always, crafters of all descriptions and experience levels are welcomed, and there aren't any dues or anything like that.
I'll also mention that after SnB this week, some people are planning to head over to Pecha Kucha Night downtown, so that's an option if you're interested!

07:01 pm - This week at the farmer's market at Lippett Park
This week we will try meeting at the Wednesday night farmer's market at Lippett Park. If you can, bring a chair. (I will try to remember to throw an extra one or two in the car just in case.)

In case of bad weather, or once it starts to get dark, we'll move across the street to Three Sisters.

Three Sisters is at 1074 Hope Street in Providence, just down the street from Pawtucket. http://www.threesistersri.com/

Hope to see you at the farmer's market tomorrow!

10:46 am - In East Providence this week
Hi all,

We're not able to meet at AS220 Labs this week, unfortunately. However, Erin noticed that Superchief Trio has an outdoors show from 6:30-8 pm on Wednesday in East Providence so we thought it could be fun to have it there.

http://www.eventkeeper.com/code/events.cfm?curOrg=EPPLS&fb_source=message#2782278

The location is:

* Weaver Library, 41 Grove Avenue, East Providence, RI

The forecast looks good (knock on wood) so I am hopeful that this will work out.

Hope to see you there! If anyone needs a ride over, let me know.

I'm not sure yet where we will meet next week -- AS220 Labs is an option but it seems like it might be a good idea for us to find a new location in general. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know.

10:15 am - Back at AS220 Labs on Wednesday
On Wednesday this week we're back to AS220 Labs in the Mercantile Block at 6:30 pm.

To get there, go to the corner of Mathewson and Washington Streets downtown, walk east on Mathewson past Local 121 and then past the AS220 gallery at 95 Mathewson. There will be a small alley named Lucie Way on your left. Go down Lucie Way, and you'll find AS220 Labs around halfway down, right after the Mexican restaurant.

The doors may be locked. If so, ring the doorbell to the left of the doors and we will come and let you in.

As always, crafters of all descriptions and experience levels are welcomed, and there aren't any dues or anything like that.

A note about parking
There isn't any parking for AS220 Labs specifically, but depending on what else is going on downtown, you may be able to find street parking. Otherwise, I usually use the parking lot on Fountain Street between Greene and Empire (next to the Providence Public Library), which has parking for $5.

Unfortunately AS220 Labs isn't available to us this week, so we'll be meeting at Katy W.'s new apartment tonight. Email Katy or send her a facebook message to find out the address.

I'll have dinner at the Mexican place next to AS220 Labs at 5:30 pm and will stay there until around 7, so if you'd like a ride feel free to join me there, or call or text me (401-419-0367).
