OK! It took me a while to settle down and write about Rhinebeck! I had such a great time and such a positive response that kept me wound up for days! The show is much more than I expected in every way: it is bigger, well organized, nicer than I thought it would be. Everybody you see walking around is happy with what they purchased, food or fiber or both. The variety of fiber and animals are amazing: from dog fiber with a “halo” and neon colors to Qiviuk and Cashmere and all that wool we love.
I have taught 6 classes from Thursday to Sunday. The staff (including all volunteers I met) were just the nicest people and all worked hard to make this event a success.
The teachers get to stay in a Bed & Breakfast in Red Hood, a beautiful Victorian house!
What else would you want in a long weekend? Teach what you love, shop for yarn, wine, and chocolate and be fed with inspiration for knitting projects you can hardly sleep?Hope to be back next year!
