Tour Tuesday: Recent Events and Coming Soon!

Since I have been doing so many Book Tour Events the past month (with many more coming up), I have decided to try a new weekly feature: Tour Tuesday. Check back each week to see where I've been and find out what events are coming up next!

Last Week, even while camping with my family on the Oregon coast, I managed to get in a Book Signing at The Wool Company in Bandon, OR. I met the new owner of The Wool Company at Black Sheep Fiber Festival in June. We were sitting at the same table at lunch one day and got to chatting (as I tend to do). She was wanting to bring more crochet into her shop, and was so excited to host an event that she emailed me right away and we decided on a date.

Since Bandon is a bit farther from home, we decided to hold the event on Thursday of the week I would be camping with my family (only 2 hours north instead of 4 or 5). My sister kept me company for the drive from Beachside National Park down to Bandon, and helped me set up my trunk show and signing (and took lots of pics). I followed the Signing with a Mini-Class, introducing my Reversible Intarsia Technique, before heading back north for our last night of camping.

Last Saturday,attended the Tigard Crochet and Knitting Guild's Knit-out and Crochet Event (you can read all about that and see some pics in yesterday's post).

This Coming Saturday I will be doing a Demonstration of my Reversible Intarsia Technique at The Big River Fiber Fling in Stevenson, WA. The demonstration will be at 2pm, followed by a Book Signing with the Eugene Textile Center booth. This is only the second year of this event, and I am looking forward to being a part of it!  The marketplace is a little smaller than many larger events, but they offer some marvelous drawing prizes (including my new book). The vendors include several of the Local Hand Dyers that I have been featuring in my Hooked on Hand Dyed Series, including Shaggy Bear Farms and Three Fates Yarns (featured this month!)
