Stitches West

The fun was not over when Madrona ended! I spent two days in Phoenix, AZ at my mother-in-law’s house with my sister-in-law, where I could relax, swim, ride a bicycle and enjoy family time. Then I flew to Santa Clara, CA for Stitches West. A huge event, many teachers, big market and taught 3 classes in Portuguese Style of Knitting! Not a lot of time to sight see but lots of fun.
We were there for the release of Betsy Beads book by XRX. A book that inspired me for years to come, since I am as left-brained as the author! Betsy encourages you throughout the book with fun, simple and great useful projects! I read  the book on my flight back to Columbus and immediately start knitting some projects as I got home.

Yesterday I went to the Gems and jewelery Show here in Columbus,OH and bought BEADS! another addiction? I hope not! Tons of ideas are crossing my mind today! Wait and you will see some of them at my new website!

  1. Andrea–You taught classes in Portuguese knitting at Stitches West? I am a regular attendee and never saw the classes listed! I’ll check more carefully next time!


    • Hi Carol! How are you and your sister?

      Unfortunately they did not accepted my proposals for Stitches South. They said it is a smaller event and they have to bring teachers that they know will fill the classes (all my classes sold out at both stitches)! I guess you have to be more famous!

      I will keep proposing!

      Please keep in touch,




      • So great to hear from you. I’m glad you are doing better. My sister is ok I guess she doesn’t talk to me now… Long story. Glad you are doing well.
