It's hard to resist the love in those eyes.
Now, it's time to talk about Homespun Yarn Party! You remember this show? It's our local MD/DC/VA fiber arts show and promises to be a ball again this year. Here are the det's:

Just off I-95, plenty of parking!When: Sunday, March 21, 2010 - 12 PM to 5 PM Why: Who needs an excuse to get together and craft?! We wanted to get together and spread some fiber love! In addition to some great crafty vendors, we'll also have:free lessons
on knitting, crochet, spinning, and maybe more
fabulous door prizes
to be given away throughout the event
weather-permitting, a sit and spin/crochet/knit area out on the deck
Of course, admission is FREE!
Go see the vendor list. Some of my favorites will be here: SG, of course, and my Steph of LOOP will be coming down from New York with her amazing batts and clouds and rovings, and Woolarina, of course, and Ang of Serendipitous Ewe (yay!) and Karida of Neighborhood Fiber Co. is coming in from Ohio, and Jen of Spirit Trail, and, well, you get the idea:)
I know Jess and Paula and Lindsay and Corrine and Lauren (and anyone else I'm missing on the Committee?) will do an amazing job this year bringing a variety of local fiber artists as well as some other great vendors. You know what the best part is? I'll have a booth on my own for the very first time! Yep, I'll be steppin out on my own. No more riding the coattails of the Sanguine Gryphon; I'm all growed up now:) How cool is that? Of course, i'm terrified I'll forget the money box, or the sign, or even the yarn!
I know that's not going to happen, cause Team Dragonfly has my back. In fact, our High Priestess, Laura Blueswirly
is coming to Maryland just to join in th fun. You should know she did the graphics for HYP this year; nice huh? Can't wait to see her! So, here's the deal. You need to come to Savage Mill to join in the fun, and when you do, come see me, ok?
