... Beyond this, it's advisable
to have a skill. Learn how to make something:
food, a shoe box, a good day.
Remember, finally, there are few pleasures
that aren't as local as your fingertips.
~Stephen Dunn, from "How to Happy: Another Memo to Myself"
Just a quick note to remind you that the registration for Madrona Fiber Arts Winter Retreat (February 16-19 in Tacoma, Washington) opens tomorrow, November 15th. I'll be teaching the 1-day Color Outside the Lines Fair Isle Tam Class on Friday, February 17th. We always have a lot of fun at this retreat—the lineup of classes is beyond amazing: knitting, spinning, jewelry, dyeing, creativity, weaving, plus lots of time to meet other passionate fiberists. Check it out here.
