Big Announcement! JST is on Facebook!!!!!!!! Haven’t you been waiting your whole life for this to happen? Come be our friend, we’d love to keep you up to date.
This weekend JST is off to the Vancouver Island Weaver’s Retreat at the Grand Hotel in Nanaimo! The Vendors are open to the public, so come check us out!
Over to you, Charlotte (my roving reporter):
I’d never been to a fibre show before so I thought I’d tell you all about my experience. On March 17 Jane and I went to Fibres West in Abbotsford and man, we had a blast. Maggie from down the road came to help us get ready. We work really well together, even when things get tough.
It took the three of us a full day to get the books, yarn, shuttles, winders, bobbins and what not all packed up into Jane’s trusty minivan.
Our first stop was to Maiwa on Granville Island to see Charllotte, Sophena, Dani and Tim. It was the first time Jane had seen everyone since she left India. It was so lovely to visit the beautiful Maiwa loft and for me to meet the wonderful team behind the Maiwa Foundation.
After some coffee, seeing more photos of India and planning Jane’s next Maiwa Workshop, we headed over to Abbotsford to unload and set up the booth.
It was great that we were able to get into the trade building at 2:30 because it took over 5 hours to get it all unloaded and displayed beautifully.
I got to see so many of you that I’ve only met on the phone or through email. It was such a treat to make the connection between everyone’s smiling faces and sweet voices!
One evening a whole bunch of us went to a fabulous restaurant in Ft. Langley. Thanks Christa for inviting us! And many thanks to Brenda of Penelope Fibre Arts for putting in all of her time and effort to organize the event! It was such a great weekend!
