Thank you, Rene! I thought I was "all alone" in my love for vintage, homemade, and "simpler"...now I have about 15 girls coming to my home this Friday! Good luck with your first meeting, too. I'll let you know how we make out on Friday. Putting together some new member packets and planning my dishes, etc. :)

We had our first chapter meeting last night and it was a fun, wonderful time! We lucked out in CT with warm, beautiful weather (finally), and we ended up being nine ladies in attendance for the evening. We ate, laughed, wore our aprons, and sat in a craft circle. Thanks to everyone who came and for bringing all the delicious dishes, appetizers, and desserts. Thanks to my little daughter Audrey who wore her apron and served as co-hostess. This is a fun, fun group! Hope to see you all next month. Will post details soon. Thanks again to all who came!

I had such a nice time last night. Nicole is such a gracious hostess and Audrey is the most amazing co-hostess. It was so wonderful getting to meet like-minded gals and just chat, relax, work on some crafts and eat some delicious food! One of the nicest evenings I've had in a long time! Thanks so much for organizing this Nicole!

I also wanted to thank you Nicole for starting this chapter and for such a fun evening. Both food, company and music were great. I too thought I was alone in my love of vintage, homemade and simpler. I think you picked the best chapter name too! Looking forward to our next meeting and your sweet co-hostess Audrey.

Update 5/25: We are having another potluck dinner this Friday on May 28th. A special guest "farmgirl" who owns and runs a local goat/alpaca/sheep farm is coming to speak about her farm, and will demonstrate spinning wool on a spinning wheel! She will also bring a basket of her goat milk soap (it is wonderful!!). Bring a dish, and some "lapwork". Please RSVP (email me) by ASAP if you are planning on coming and what you can bring to the potluck. Should be lots of fun!

We had our second meeting last night. Great fun. The owner of Rowanwood farm came and told us all about her goats and alpacas on the farm, and what it takes to make soap. She brought her wonderful goat milk soaps! Also, we had our potluck and again, everyone brought something delicious. Next up: canning class in Torrington, CT.

Last night's Get-Together was a smaller group than usual, but think we all still had fun, with the exception of the "uninvited guests" (mosquitoes) when we tried to dine outside. We never left the kitchen table to do lapwork, and the conversation included lots of laughs! Hope you all enjoyed it. Upcoming get-togethers include a Halloween swap, possibly a concert at a local winery, and visiting a farm where we can take a class on how to milk a cow and then bake a pie afterwards! (Cathy, please forward that info, sounds like everyone would really like to do that). Thanks for coming everyone.

Hi Nicole,
Sounds like your CT chapter is a hit. I wish I wasn't so far away, I was near Sandy Hook a couple of weeks ago and it was a haul.
What and where is the Elephant Trunk flea Market? Maybe I could get my DH to bring me, and send him off for coffee and I could get a chance to meet some of my CT farm Sisters.
Liz
P.S. I like the name you chose for the CT Chapter.

Hi Liz!

The Elephant Trunk is the large, outdoor flea market in New Milford, CT. I first read about it years ago in Country Living magazine. It is every Sunday from April to November. I will email you, maybe you can join us. :)

Hi girls!

We did not get to go to the Elephant Trunk flea market last week due to weather. It will be nice this Sunday, so anyone interested in going together, please drop me a line!

Hugs,

Sunday at the Flea Market was a small group, but fun!

Please come - September "Knit In", Saturday, September 18th, 1 to 4. Dessert and coffee. Bring whatever "lapwork" you wish - knitting, embroidery, scrapbooking, etc. Just an easy, casual get together. RSVP to Nicole (texdane). We are open to new members.

Coming soon: (October) - learn to milk a cow at a local farm, Halloween Movie night with Goodie Bag Swap

Hugs,

Nicole

Dear Nicole and Fellow Sister,

So sorry that I can't come on Sunday, nothing I like better than a good cup of coffee and some serious knitting but atlas the retail world calls. But wild boars will not keep me away from the October gathering were I have not only requested the day off but intend to lie about sniffing the autumnal air. Can't wait.

Well, I think our chapter had a ball this weekend! We took an "Organic Homesteading Pie Making Class" at a CT farm! Will post details on a different thread. Next up: this Friday, 6:30 pm chili night with Halloween Goodie bag swap and a movie.

Hi Connecticut Simpler Life Sisters (and anyone who'd like to join us). Please come to our Holiday Party, Saturday December 11th, at 7 PM. Please bring an appetizer, main dish or dessert, and a wrapped gift no more than $5 to $10 to swap. The twist: the gift must be homemade/handmade. It can be anything you wish, but must be made by you! RSVP no later than Friday, December 3rd, please. (Email me).

Looking ahead to January, we will be doing a "Soup Swap"! Bring a pot of your favorite soup and come to a soup tasting!

Nicole
