Tour Tuesday: California Bay Area this Week!
On Thursday I am hitting the road again. This time all the way down to northern California. I am hitting 2 yarn stores for book signings and trunk shows this weekend and would love to see some of you there!
On Friday afternoon I will be at K2TOG in Albany, CA. I met the ladies from this shop when they were ordering my books at the Interweave booth during TNNA. They were very excited about the technique, and especially Tyler's Space Adventure blanket. I believe they plan to hold classes on the technique in the near future. So come out and see the designs up close and personal.
I will be signing books 3pm to 5pm, and be teaching a one-hour Make-n-Take as a basic introduction to the Reversible Intarsia Technique, all materials and instruction for just $15.
On Saturday, 11am to 1pm, I will be visiting the Stitch'N It Meetup Group held every month at Exclamation Point in Santa Clara, CA. This is a group for all sorts of stitchers from knitters and crocheters to cross stitch and needlepoint. I'm looking forward to sharing my Trunk Show and Books with their wide variety of customers. Some of my intarsia patterns were even inspired by cross stitch patterns.
I was planning to visit a third shop down in Aptos, CA (near my old college stomping grounds of Santa Cruz). But sadly, Yarns by the Sea is dealing with water damage and the shop is closed until they can repair the damage. If you live in the area, be sure to visit their shop when they reopen and buy some yarn. They will need some love to make up for this unfortunately loss of business.
Hope to see you at one of my other events!
