Having decided on my festivals for this year, I am excited about meeting up with my friends, fellow artisans, and patrons at these events! I am musing about what to weave. Next, I have to  decide what stock to bring to each show. I agonize over what to pack, especially for a one day small show because I am just not a minimalist. But if you are interested in looking at  any of the items that are in my virtual shop,    please send me a note and I will be sure to bring that piece along.

First venue of the year is For the Love of Fibre, May 4th, 10 to 4. located  in The Drummond Building in Spencerville, ON   This is the third year for this festival. This is a curated show, the exhibitors are by invitation and the quality is very high. For more information Google   For the Love of Fibre
