What happened to February, or more importantly, in February? I found out that Birkeland Bros. was closing. It wasn’t a shock. I think Cara had been carrying the burden of the shop for a while. I’ve enjoyed teaching there. As a matter of fact, I never considered teaching until Cara asked me to and well [...]
It’s unusual for me to go so long without a post. It’s also over the top for me to have 3 huge shows almost back to back. All done. It feels great to say that. Of course there are still a few loose ends to tie up. Just a few more orders to knit —and [...]

The face of the studio is forever evolving and changing. Joan, gone for most of the summer to shows and to enjoy the short return of her daughter is now moving in new equipment. The last of Sonia’s fibre and her wheel left yesterday and I’m not sure what to do with the blank wall [...]
