Last Saturday, I did a Book Signing at my local yarn shop - Northern Woolies - in Greenfield, MA. Julia has been begging to come to one of these - I'm not sure what all the intrigue is about, but I'm not nine years old. Since this was a local one and I know Christine Copeland - the owner of the store - quite well, I felt it would be safe to bring her along.
Julia had a blast (as did I). Mary Brenner, a very talented local knitter who made the lovely "Coleus Scarf" for the book, came and asked Julia and I to sign her book. Here's a cute photo of Julia so proud of being involved and included. She put a lot of thought into what she wrote and actually left me a little room to sign too.
The signing was well attended and lots of fun. Many enthusiastic knitters - including two men! Wow - how fun! I try to stay well-hidden in the hills here and don't frequent yarn shops very often. I was glad people were excited about the book and my yarn Julia which Northern Woolies is now carrying.
We (that means Northern Woolies and I) are thinking about having a party in a couple months. The reason for the party is to celebrate finished objects from Kristin Knits - or objects inspired by my new book. Anyone local interested? Look for more about it right here on my blog and on the Northern Woolies site.
I'm doing a book signing this Saturday at The National Needlework Association's semi-annual trade show in Long Beach, California. Attendees are all shop-owners. It should be fun to meet a lot of new shop-owners and re-acquaint myself with old friends. And of course, to spread the word about my book. I'm also hoping to talk with lots of designers and authors including Susan B. Anderson who did that wonderful review of my book on her blog!
I'll be back early next week. If you are having "farm withdrawl" (I know I will be - it pains me to leave this wonderful place and my family and be faced with the hustle and bustle of airports, buses, hotels, and trade shows), check out this blog, written by Jon Katz, which I stumbled upon and have been enjoying lately.
If you need a book sent out, don't worry - I'll ship it next week! And thanks to all of you who have ordered from me recently- we all sincerely appreciate it!
