Wanted:  Young Writers
Cumming Local teams up with North Georgia Writers’ Academy

Do you have a son or daughter who loves to write?  Do they enjoy telling stories or sharing information about activities and events going on in their school?

Whether your child enjoys writing imaginative stories for others to read or they have an interest in what is going on in their school and they want to share that information with others, we have a place for them!  We’re currently looking for students – ages 10 through 18 – to submit articles to be published on CummingLocal.com.

Cumming Local is excited to partner with North Georgia Writers’ Academy (NGWA) to bring you the Young Writers’ Program.

Alpaca Yarns USA: Open House Event

Alpaca Yarns USA:  Open House Event

Alpaca Yarn USA first opened its Forsyth County doors in June of 2011.   Their shop is filled with all things Spinning, Weaving, Knitting & Felting related!

It is the perfect stop for the experienced.  If you’ve been spinning long you’ll most definitely appreciate that Alpaca Yarn USA is the largest seller of Spinning Wheels in the area (possibly even the state of Georgia).  They carry seven different models in stock and offer a very popular “try before you buy” option – uncommon when other stores need to special order the equipment.  You’ll also notice their beautiful selection of looms – carried in stock as well.

The last weekend of summer is upon us & fall is just around the corner (here’s hoping the weather isn’t that far behind)!  Whether your summer has been crazy busy or you were able to take it nice & easy, whether you had a busy August trying to get the kids ready for school or your month has been full of meetings and conference calls, chances are we could all come up with a good reason to take the night off!  A night to enjoy with old girlfriends or make new ones.  A night to simply get out of the house & enjoy.  A night to get ready for FALL!
