As blog followers, we at The Fibre Studio (FS) have seen a resurgence of the use of word mantras for 2012. What a lovely concept to revisit.
During many staff and customer conversations during past weeks, a common theme emerged. Most people are embracing “green” concepts or “going green” in a different way. It’s all about the “re.” They are recycling, reusing, and re-purposing without the bin. In other words, they are looking at their existing possessions and re-imagining their uses.
re-purpose, /ree-pur’-puhs/ 1. verb: to reset as an aim or goal for oneself or 2. noun: the reason for which something is done, made, or used.
The Fibre Studio wants to participate in this Renaissance. Yes, another “re” word. We are adopting the word (Re)Purpose as our 2012 mantra and have added several events to our monthly calendar: (1) a Yarn Swap on the last Friday of each month and (2) an FAQ (Tips ‘n Techniques) for You session during one Thursday Open Crochet/Knit session (6-8pm), with a Rewind of the FAQ for You on the 2nd Sunday of each month. Keep track of these new events as well as our classes and workshops on our monthly events calendar. There are some very exciting new opportunities coming soon!
We’ve shared ours…so what is your 2012 mantra or resolution?
