Wow, I am only now getting a chance to sit down and write. Today I got to go to A Verb for Keeping Warm to a Slow Clothing panel and book signing with Katrina Rodabaugh, author of Mending Matters. It was my first time going to AVFKW.

It is an hour and a half away to Oakland.

The shop was small, but packed with so much fiber goodness! I just stroked and fondled my way around the shelves and tables. There were spinning wheels and looms and masses of dye plants drying on the walls and hanging from the ceiling.

A wall of indigo drying by the register.

The crowd was standing room only, and I was glad I arrived an hour early and snagged one of the few chairs. The panel was fantastic. Almost all the panelists were local and there was a lot of discussion about the sourcing of plant and animal fibers in California and the growing Slow Clothing movement and natural dying.

I loved it and it made me wish I had sheep or alpaca or even fiber rabbits.

Some day….

Now I’m off to read my new book. I have a couple of jeans that need some attention.
