Just in, new information on a yarn shop in Hilton Head, South Carolina. Donna Robb has returned from there and has this to say:

Went to Hilton Head, SC and found a very tiny yarn/book store. The owner had just purchased the store late last year and just learned how to knit in January of this year. You should see the stuff she is working on! It blew me away to see just how quickly she learned and has started patterns that are (I think) quite challenging. I told her that I belong to a knitting guild and she invited me to come back to her shop on Wednesday after she closes the store. She said that some of the women come in and they have a 'bitch and stitch' session from 5:00 - 7:00. I met the nicest people. Looks like the beginning of a guild in SC to me. If anyone is in Hilton Head, SC, stop by The Courtyard and visit Toni McPherson.

The Courtyard
32 Palmetto Bay Rd
10A Village Exchange
Hilton Head, SC 29928
Owners: Toni McPherson & Meg Bartlett
Toni handles the knitting part and Meg handles the books.

Christine sent in this message for me to pass along to everyone.

"The Maryland ARMY Guard that's over in Afghanistan will be in need of caps/socks/scarves in BLACK for the upcoming winter."

Please contact her if you're able to help out in this most worthy cause.
