Old Friends and New

I’m sitting in my AirBnB room after finishing up my first visit to New York Sheep and Wool. I’d love to write a newsy post about all the things to do and see at this illustrious sheep show, but I rarely left my classroom and at some level there was no need.

I had the MOST amazing group of students. Whether they were tackling weaving for the first time, pushing the boundaries of their looms, or creating their own yarns for weaving, each and everyone was a delight. The moments when I ducked out of the classroom I bumped into friends that I haven’t seen in years.

I was attracted to my craft by the tool, but I’ve stayed for the people. Social media allows me to cultivate friendship in new and very real ways and there is still nothing like being to catch up with an old (or new) friend in person.

New York Sheep and Wool

My only regret, I hugged not one sheep.

  1. Thank you so much for two great classes! I’m so glad I was able to get into your classes at almost the last minute. I have so many ideas I’m not sure where to start! Looking forward to your sampling class!

  2. I had so much fun weaving for the first time in your class! I owned myself a 15″ Cricket within 20 minutes of class ending and I’ve tried several different mini-projects so far – lol. I can’t wait to learn more!
