Yesterday brought a visit with Brenda of Penelope Fibre Arts. Brenda and her mother started Penelope earlier this millennium, with a focus on weaving and spinning. Her shop is filled with colorful weaving yarns and beautiful fibers.
It's amazing how extensive the BC fibre community is. I can't keep track of how many groups, stores, events, farms and people Brenda listed off for me as we were talking. Wow! The most exciting part for me was learning about the Fibres West event she is organizing for March 2010.
Later today will bring visits to Birkeland Bros, SweetGeorgiaYarns, and Three Bags Full. Oh dear. What a day!
Anyways, must get back to some other work I need to finish (statistics, anyone?), but wanted to share some West Coast happiness. I have to say, people in the Fibre community are the nicest in the world. Really. Thanks Brenda!
