An Interview with Riin

Want to read an interview with me? Penny Shima Glanz posted an interview with me on Little Acorn Creations. You can read the interview here.     Speaking of interviews, we’re soon going to start a series of interviews with LYS owners who carry Happy Fuzzy Yarn. Watch this space!
