With the 10th Year Celebrations kicking off in Hurricane country, we had a blast with 85-90 attendees, maybe more, we had 118 rsvp and I didn't count and took the above group shot towards the end when a few had taken off, but hey we're pretty relaxed at A Few Quiet Yarns.

October 19th was another AFQY night full of fun and good times shared by all with plenty of yarns, connections and sharing of experiences.
