The Atlanta Sisterlocks Meetup Is Born - Calling all Sisterlocked Atlantans

A big hi to everyone and here's a little announcement:
Well, I've taken the plunge and started a meetup specifically for anyone interested in Sisterlocks and other tool assisted locks in the Atlanta area. It's something I've been mulling over for ages but hadn't gone beyond the thinking stage.
I'd love to link up with other like minded sisters with Sisterlocks, nappylocs and other tool-assisted locks, to share our experiences and journeys. I'd specifically also be looking to bring together consultants -trainees and certified, for exchange, sharing, mentoring etc. Most of all, I'd hope we'd have fun, make friendships and create a real resource pool for those of us who have embarked or are contemplating locking as a way to wear our hair natural.
Why limit your group to Sisterlocks and tool locks some may ask? Because that's my experience and I am so totally in love with mine. I know there are other groups with a wider focus and I am glad for them. I believe embracing our God-given natural hair can be done in many ways. But my path has been the Sisterlock path and I'm looking for like-minded sisters and brothers who are interested in sharing this.
Check out The Atlanta Sisterlocks Meetupfor more information. I'm looking forward to seeing where this takes me as one of my goals to expand and develop in the New Year. Please spread the word. I'd specially like to link up with Sisterlocks meetup groups in other cities. Members coming to Atlanta would have an instant base of friends. Anyhow, I'll keep you all posted. I'm praying hard about this.

I haven't checked over here in too long! I love ALL the photos you, sis, the babygirls! How special it must be to have a family sisterlocks. I so wish someone close to me would do it. Until then I will just enjoy those of you who have it!

Have fun at your ATL meet up!

Thanks Knotsnlocks and Tra. Yep we definitely are a Sisterlocked family and even my 10 yr old boy is clamoring for brotherlocks. Look forward to seeing you and your co-worker at a meetup soon K&L!
