Dyeing like a Crazy Woman

Wow. Well, this has been a crazy month. Actually this whole year has been crazy so far. I dyed 640 skeins of Corrie Sock for Yarnbox. Actually that started last year. And it was supposed to be 900 skeins, but my supplier was waiting more yarn from their supplier in the UK, and that supplier …

Fiber Expo is this weekend! Yay!

I really like Fiber Expo. It’s one of my favorite shows to do. It’s a hometown show (Ann Arbor! Woohoo!), so I get to sleep in my own bed, not travel far, and I know where the good restaurants are, but it’s more than that. It’s just got a cool vibe to it. I see …

In the meantime they’ve taped a sheet of plastic …

I survived!

handspun yarn at Art Fair

Art Fair was scorchingly hot, with heavy rain, thunderstorms, and a tornado warning. In other words, typical Art Fair weather. But I survived. The heat took a lot out of me (I slept almost all day the day after the fair ended), but I’m glad I did it. I sold a lot of yarn and …

Art Fair is almost here

I’ve been really busy getting ready for Art Fair. I’ve still got a ton of labeling to do. But I figured I’d take time out to blog a bit. So, what is Art Fair? It’s officially four separate art fairs that take place at the same time in Ann Arbor every July. It’s pretty hard …
