Yesterday I got to Hartford for the fabulous Stitches East! This morning we had the teacher a la carte lunch, a fun time where the teachers hop from table to table talking about the classes we'll be teaching. It's like speed dating with students and is a treat. Talking about weaving in general and classes I'm offering here in 3 minutes, about 10 times in a row is a challenge. Hope I made sense!
Just outside is registration where you can feel the anticipation about all the things that are going to happen soon - classes, meeting friends, and looking for great yarn and supplies in the vendor hall! I love being part of this - especially being around so many fiber lovers. It's so easy to talk with anyone and comment on the cool thing they're wearing or project they're working on.
And of course, Hartford is beautiful, even looking out the window of the convention center.
Tomorrow morning I get to teach the stashbuster scarf class and I always have a great time with that.
