Of Vine & Verse

A time for sharing poetry
Fourth Mondays 5:30 pm

Sit back sipping and listen to poetry with Stone Soup’s “Of Vine & Verse”! A very informal and casual gathering of friendly folks who love poetry (or want to). Bring a favorite poem to share or just come to enjoy others' favorites.

It is our hope that Of Vine & Verse will continue beyond the closing of Stone Soup. We're planning to meet the fourth Monday of January, the 26th 5:30PM, for more information email Emily Hancock at

Help the Bears! Bid on this Quilt!

This Bear Claw Quilt is a labor of love to benefit one of my passions which is wildlife. I have always wanted to encounter a bear, but the closest I have gotten is The Wildlife Center of Virginia in Lyndhurst. The Wildlife Center has taken in an inordinate number of black bears this past year and is in need of donations to help the bears. So, as a result, I decided to put my skills to work to help the bears.

This quilt is a traditional bear claw design made with Civil War reproduction fabric. It is 68" x 68". It is on display at Stone Soup Café and Bookshop in Waynesboro, VA. Bids for the quilt will be accepted at Stone Soup Books until December 31st. Please, leave your name and contact information. The lowest acceptable bid is $275.00.
