Stitches West 2010

wow i am soooo tired
the night before stitches i couldn't sleep- got maybe 2 hrs.
it didnt help that we also put a bid in on a house and dropped the papers off on the way out of town.
my hands were shaking at the opening of the first 2 market sessions.
by today i was doing a little better and actually got hungry and wanted to eat while i was there.
jordana paige did a wonderful blog post on how she used intwined studio for her latest pattern "Shane" so it was great to be able to thank her in person. she was our first celebrity endorsement.
friday i turned around to see cookie A in our booth and gasped. she demo'd Intwined pattern Studio in her class, the she sent janel laidman over who was so sweet and gave me a copy of enchanted sole. i wish i had my rivendels on when she was there.
i adore the becoming art yarn that is coming home with me, got to get in person chameleon colorworks yarn, creatively dyed yarn (calypso painted with over 500 yds!)
00000 and 000 DPNs, and some other wonderful stuff.

march 3 a new book will be out "how to knit a love song"
the author Rachael herron was lovely and i am so excited for her.
i can't wait to read her book.

Michael of fiber beat is way too much fun!

and the editor of knitter's magazine, Rick Mondragon asked if he could do a write up on us! so watch for future issues! ( i will let you know when i do which one summer or fall when i do)

it was so good to see becka and husboy. we had a wonderful time celebrating her 30th bday. and wow ! what an amazing ammount of hair on her head!

it was soo good to see merike! not long enough!
hopefully at stitches south we will have more time. i may have to take a class so i can talk to her ;0)

Hi Heather
It was so good to meet you and (some of) your family. Great to talk "Paradise" and Chico area stuff with them, too.
I haven't had a response from the website. Are you guys overwhelmed? crashed? still in Stitches-shock? I'm dying to try the software!!!

xx Dee

It was great to meet you at Stitches. Sounds like you had a great time. :)

I haven't had the chance to play with the software yet - sick kids and boyfriend are taking up all my crafting time ACK! - but I can't wait to try it out! I'll let you know how it goes when I do.
