A Vancouver trip

I had a quick trip to Vancouver this week for a SAORI workshop at a women’s centre in the downtown eastside. It was great to be there and to meet the women. They enjoyed the weaving and created two banners that will be displayed at the centre. Sorry I couldn’t take any photos – but perhaps once they install the banners, I can get a photo of that.

Thanks to Felix for organizing the workshop and to Anik for helping out!

After the workshop, I got a chance to stop in at MelonHeadKnitwear‘s studio to pick up one of her Project 355 yarns that she spun. Wow – gorgeous yarns – a whole wall full of them. I bought number 232 – Gentle Tides! And then there were two bonus yarns – Storm and Robin’s nest! Love the yarns, love the names, loved being at the studio! I also got to meet Kristen, who was knitting away on a sock – using the two circular needle method – I’d love to learn how to do that!

I can’t believe that I didn’t take any photos of the studio – too much to talk about and share I guess. More talk about a Fibreshed too!

A late ferry home to Salt Spring Island.

Happy Weaving,

    Hi, Terri
    You are fast. And busy. I tried to leave a comment on your fibershed web page but got an error of page not found.

    Good work in getting a webpage up so fast. Thanks for the cc on the fibershed email. We are in the middle of getting our Art Gallery show off the ground and then we’ll be able to invest some time to get something moving here.

    Morning Terri
    I much enjoy ‘traveling’ with you – New Zealand, Hawaii, and now Vancouver. Casting the seeds of Saori! And the links are most welcomed – just learned about the Eastside Crawl ….. wow! Wouldn’t need a passport. Thank you.

    Love creating new potentials. And I also am happy to connect people.

    I feel so lucky to have had so many Saori travel opportunities lately!

    Happy Weaving,
