This Novembers gathering of weavers was at my house in the hopes that I could host before the snow flies and getting up my driveway becomes a leap of faith.  Other than a couple of panicked parking situations everyone made it up and we proceeded to have a fun and fibery gathering.  Plus I always look forward to making my [...]

summertime gathering at Kathleen’s

Having missed the last two months of our weavers group I was so happy to spend a day at Kathleen's on a perfect July summer day.
