Tomorrow I leave for Madrona, the high holy fiber arts retreat/playtime.
I’ve saved money for two years to be able to go and I am quite excited, like the days before your birthday when you are 6, excited.
I’ll be there late Wednesday and I leave mid-day Sunday. So far I have packed 5 knitting projects and 2 spinning projects. I thin I’m a little light.
Here are the classes I’m taking:
- Photographing your Fiber with Franklin
- EPS System with Amy Detjen
- Handcarding with Carol Rhoades
- Recycled Yarn with Judith McKenzie
I have left Friday completely open, no classes – nothing, just playing/knitting/spinning time and shopping. Any tips on eating/playing/shopping in Tacoma are appreciated!
Did you notice I have a spinning class? That means I’ll have to take a wheel. So far, I’ve been a fan of the Schacht Sidekick as a travel wheel – it slides into tiny spaces when my car is packed.
But I really love this:
That’s a 27″ Samsonite wheelie suitcase – look at all of the room left over. I can even bring clothes.
I borrowed the suitcase from Beth – the Sidekick Suitcase Saga is here on her blog.
Tune in next week for the Madrona report.
