Margaret discusses the Myers Briggs Personality Inventory and how is might help to explain Knitter’s and Crocheter’s issues with process and product in their project.  Check here for an introduction on the Judging and Perceiving pair in Myers Briggs.

Behind the Redwood Curtain

Catherine took the Haunted House Tour of Eureka (CA) and learned why mezzanines were so popular in the Victorian bars in the 1800’s.  Here are some photos of Eureka Books.   The interior shows the intact mezzanine from the old days.

  1. I enjoyed your description of the mezzanine style of building and how it was used as a saloon long ago. There is a yarn shop outside of Dallas, TX, in the small town of Farmersville, whose building fits that description! The shop is called The Fiber Circle. Although I don’t believe it was a saloon, it worth looking up on the internet, and definitely worth a visit! (I have no connections to the store except as a patron, so am not advertising for my financial gain.)
