Karin Strom, the Editor in Chief of Yarn Market News, came to visit our farm on Monday. She brought her wonderful husband Gabe with her. She's doing a story about me for the October issue of Yarn Market News. We had a great time talking together. Karin and I both have had similar career paths over the years and we figured out we have known each other for over 20 years.
We shared lunch at our kitchen table (which included leg of lamb sandwiches), trading stories and laughing a lot. It was a great day. You can read about Karin's adventure here on the Yarn Market News Blog. She and her husband are big proponents of buying farm-raised food. We sent them off with a half a lamb packed neatly in their cooler. They brought home a bit of our farm and we're hoping they enjoy the memories when they are cooking our lamb this summer.
I'll let you know when the real article comes on-line in October.
BOOK PARTY - MAY 5-6
to celebrate the publication of my new book
CRAFTING A PATTERNED HOME.
Our colorful 1751 farmhouse will be open to the public. On view will be many of the projects that are featured in Crafting A Pattern Home along with many other things I have made over the years.
This event will be a celebration of the handmade. I hope the day will inspire you to add some pattern and color to your home.
The event is FREE. Books will be available along with some other things I have made. For more information and directions, see the EVENTBRITE PAGE HERE. Although tickets are not mandatory, it will help me get a count to know what to expect. Hope to see you here in western Massachusetts in May.
