Stitches West 2011 Market Preview

Previous years' entries: 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010.

Thursday night is student market preview. Since I signed up to work for Black Water Abbey Yarns booth this year, I have a vendor badge and can come and go all weekend. I stopped by the booth to meet Judy, but the rest of the time she allowed me to roam around.

Last year's "the beautiful booth" Isager is back, make a mental note to visit them again.

I don't remember the name of this booth, but most definitely will be visiting them again.

Ali MacGraw will be there on Saturday.

And then there are people don't even bother the show up.

And some unwilling shopper.

I wore my Spencer Day and ran into Melissa Leapman. She recognized it instantly and really liked seeing her creation on me.

Full report next week.

ooooh, that is sad when a vendor doesn't show up. Especially when so many want to get in.

More photos! More photos! I must live vicariously through your photos.

Happy Fiber Arts Friday!

I am so jealous! I'll bet you need the whole weekend to see everything and then to go back and see the really great stuff a second time. Can't wait to hear all about it. Happy Fiber Arts Friday! Pet that little pooch for me.

Many of the folks who didn't show up were stuck when i80 closed because of the snow. They're stuck with all the yarny goodness on the other side of the pass and out the income to boot!
