Back Online, Rae’s New Shop Location

Thursday, January 3rd, 2008

We could not look up the weather report any time we wanted, could not look up any random question that came up by going to Wikipedia, could not use the internet to convert inches to centimeters, all sorts of things that we just do as a part of an ordinary day’s activities.

I ran into Julie at Rae’s shop and she is looking for photos of the contra dance on New Year’s Eve. However, I am actually typing this at Rae’s with wireless so that I can post something sooner. I will do New Years’ photos when I get time at home.

It is just a few blocks from the old location, and is in my favorite block in my city of Lansing, Michigan. The space is about 2.5 times larger than the old one. The lighting is great, the seating is wonderful, and there are two spots for teaching classes so we can have concurrent schedules if need be.

I was there on the opening day and there was a rush in the afternoon, with folks waiting in line to check out. It was a festive atmosphere and I ran into a lot of folks I enjoy.

Thursday night we had nine folks for late hour knit-in, not all at the same time but we had a very pleasant time and plenty of elbow room.

Congratulations to Rae on her new space. The East Side is getting more fun every day!
