Maryland here I come!

I'll be at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival this weekend, and if any of you reading this will be there, please let me know -- I'd love to meet you! (Don't they have the most wonderful logo? I'm really hoping they've got that on a t-shirt for this year.)

My main purpose in going is to look for small vendors for Yarnivore. I'm really looking forward to talking to lots of vendors and finding out if they'll be able to supply yarn and fiber for the store. One of the best parts of starting the store is meeting lots of wonderful fiber people, many of whom are living the dream of starting their own fiber-related businesses.

rose -- we are 90 percent sure we are going. at least we are going in that direction -- we have to go to a letterpress bookstore in DE that day. so if we go to sheep and wool, it will be early and only for an hour or two.

is francis coming? his blog is hysterical.

as far as scoping vendors goes -- e mail me and i'll tell you a horror story. :)

Thanks, Amber! I might come, but I should probably stay home and work on my book. That deadline looms more each day. Perhaps I can justify the trip if I'm incredibly productive between now and the end of the week.
