Madrona Rocks

Ahhhhh, Madrona! A feast of fiber and classes, spinning and friends. What a long weekend! Peggy and I went with Linda K and Sandi on Thursday, not for classes, just for shopping and visiting. We bought stuff. It was all good stuff, too.

Next year we're hoping to have an actual legitimate blogger meet and greet and will be needing a committee formed to plan the event. Maybe a lunch on Saturday...with signage or name tags...

A blogger lunch would definitely lure me down to Tacoma. Count me as a volunteer!

I think that Gail has been misidentified here.
Thanks for organizing this. It was great. Next year a full banquet room!

Hi! We met last weekend when you were sweet enough to let me interrupt your spinning to have a go on your wheel. I came home and told my roommates all about how great you guys all were. It was really nice to meet you both!
