    Nashville Market 2016, Part 1

    Hello from Omaha! I'm back from Nashville, but not fully recovered, I don't believe. I'll check again in a little while, after I've poured my fourteenth cup of coffee for the day. Market was so much fun, although a little more eventful than I expected! I brought Sophie and Sabrina with me this year, and both girls were very excited:…

    You’re Invited!

    I'm honored to have been asked to teach a class at Dyeing to Stitch in Virginia Beach this spring, and I'd love it if you could attend! The weekend will be full of merriment in the form of stitching, shopping, eating, coffee-drinking, and relaxing with old friends and new. If you've never visited Pat and Ann's shop, now would be…

    Nashville Market – Part 3

    Welcome back! Here are the last set of photos from this year's market, hosted by Yarn Tree and Needlework Retailer. They did such a wonderful job, right down to all the fine details, and I can't thank them enough for everything! I hope they continue to host more markets for all of us – just as soon as they recover…

    Nashville Market – Part 1

    What a fabulous market it was!! I always have so much fun reuniting with good friends, going out to fun restaurants in big groups (there were 20 of us one night!), chatting with all of the shop owners, and getting to see all of the new designs (and some of the previously-released ones) everyone has worked so hard to get…

    Fall Back

    I have no idea why I don't post photos when they're freshly-taken, but I tend to stay away from my computer for long periods of time. Every day I think to myself, "I really should post the Shepherd's Bush retreat pictures," and every day I put it off… again, my hip issues hamper my enthusiasm for blogging! But I've culled…

    Market Off My List

    Okay, so I don't exactly have a list to mark anything off of; perhaps if I did, I'd have posted these market pictures ages ago! Although they're not exactly new releases any more (most of them were released in August) maybe you'll find one or a few that are new to you… (And get a head start on next fall's…

    Shepherd’s Bush

    Well, by the time you read this I'll be out of town again! I just thought I'd pre-blog the photos from one of the most wonderful places on earth: Shepherd's Bush, in Ogden, Utah! I didn't get a lot of different pictures this time because the shop was packed to the rafters with delighted customers, filling their arms with new…

    Karin’s Stitching Room

    Oh how I wish you all could see this room in person! It's so lovely and serene and feminine, and I enjoyed every moment in there, just gazing at the softness of it all. Since the Inspired Summer Seminar was held very close to where Karin lives, Karin attended the workshop, as well as invited me to stay in her…
