Brattleboro Book Signing - May 20th

I'll be at the Book Cellar in Brattleboro, Vermont for a book signing and informal stitchery lesson Saturday May 20th from 2 to 4 p.m. Here's a photo of the window display they made with pillows and things from my new book Colorful Stitchery.
I'll have lots more things from the book with me that day.

If you haven't ever been to
Brattleboro, you're in for a treat. Just off Route 91 at the first exit in Vermont, the downtown has a quaint, late 1800's feeling with beautiful brick architecture. The town was built on the banks of the Connecticut River. The stores, restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, book shops (new and used), and the Farmer's Market (Saturdays 9 - 1) are all worth the trip.

For textile junkies, there's some great stores - - -
Delectable Mountain Fabrics - a fabric store like none other
Adivasi - Indian Imports

Not Just Yarn - a nice yarn store north of town
Two thrift stores

"Boomerang" consignment store

The Brattleboro Food Coop
Green Mountain Spinnery is just up the road in Putney

Hope to see you there!

I just found you via Yarnstorm, and, scrolling down, saw this post about you being in Brattleboro. My boyfriend is from Walpole (NH), and so I've gotten familiar with the towns around there. I always get a little grin when I see them come up. Are you from around there?

(I went to the Green Mtn. Spinnery in January, when we were last back east!)

I live within an easy drive of Brattleboro. It is a lovely area of the country to live. Kristin
