Setting Up Shop for The Gathering 2012

If you are not a member of the Northeast Handspinners Association, then you might not be aware of the Biennial Gathering, a three-day spinners/fiber artists conference  held this year at the Heritage Hotel in Southbury CT. Three days of workshops, meetings, marketplace shopping, spin-ins, and all under one roof. We hole up and forget about anything and everything, save our passion for fibery stuff.

It all begins at 9:30 November 2 and wraps up by 1:30 November 4 . . . three whole days with my people. Ahhhhhhhhh.

This year I will be a most excited student of Jacey Boggs and Katheryn Alexander, two fiber arts rock stars with publications and national/international reputations. For the first time, my studio -- Walking Wool -- will be participating as a vendor in the Marketplace. I'll have my original sheep photographs, both large and small, framed and not, as well as T-Shirts, note and postcards, magnets, naturally-dyed fleece and locks, rovings, washed fleece for spinning, and more if can fit it all in my little Kia Soul.

So, now it's all up to Hurricane Sandy to make sure that The Gathering will indeed come off seamlessly . . .

Getting ready for the October - November Rush

These two months have so much going on, fiber-wise. Stitches East in Hartford, NYS Sheep and Wool Fest in Rhinebeck, and The Gathering spinners' retreat in CT. Lots of opportunities to talk up Walking Wool, and hopefully gain some new fans. Meanwhile, calendars for Halcyon Yarn in Bath ME were delivered last week, and we hope for the best response possible. And, a reorder! I'll be busy preparing my FIRST EVAH vendor's booth over the next few weeks, fine tuning, tweaking, and giving it all the most serious consideration. Our little Kia Soul will be packed to the gills with Walking Wool wares. To say I'm excited about it all is a large understatement.
