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, www.handweaving.ca/shop, please send me a note firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be sure to bring that piece along.
