Fibres West 2014 Recap

Ginny reports back from the annual Fibres West show in Cloverdale this past March. Liisa summarized Knit City 2013, Grace did a post on our January TNNA trip to San Diego, and so it fell to me, Ginny, to do the post on Fibres West 2014! This is my second time working the SweetGeorgia booth…

Ravellenics 2014

Looking forward to the upcoming games?! Ginny at the SweetGeorgia Studio suggests that you join us for some Ravellenic celebrations!

Road Trippin’ to Salt Lake City

It’s been 17 years since I’ve been to Salt Lake City. The first time was during university when my girlfriends and I drove down from Vancouver through Washington, Oregon, and Idaho to Utah to visit one of our closest friends who had moved to study there. This time, my husband and I drove 17 hours…
