Friday Five: Where in the World

It’s been a couple weeks since I’ve managed to wrangle a few minutes to write a Friday post, but I have good reasons. One big reason is because I’ve been super busy with our spring launch! All the other reasons are here (looong, pent-up picture post to follow): Around the World in 80 Skeins Two…

TNNA Winter 2015 Recap

Feeling like a beginner again! This past TNNA was held in Phoenix in early January. I haven’t been to the past two shows, it’s been a while since Liisa has attended the show, and Ashley… well she started working with us this past fall and she’s never been to TNNA before! And plus, this time…

A Year in Review: 2014

This blog started off over ten years ago as a place to record my notes about what I was knitting and baking. Over the years, I’ve used it to share my crafty projects and random experiences, but more recently also to journal the things I am grateful for in this creative life. I started it…

From London to Brighton

One thing I love about London is that there’s always something going on. From the first day we arrived, we went to the Fanzone in Stratford to watch the F1 British Grand Prix race where Lewis Hamilton won in front of a home crowd. Then there was watching the London leg of the Tour de…

First stop. Florence.

Two weeks of traveling, five flights, three cities (Florence, London, and Brighton), plus stops in Paris and Pisa… was quite the adventure with six pieces of luggage, three iPhones, two laptops and little baby in tow. My teaching trip to Unwind Brighton could have been really short and compact, but I decided it was close…

Countdown to Unwind

In less than a week, we’ll be winging our way over to the UK. The crunch is on now… slides for Colour Stories presentation, check. Slides for Colour Confidence presentation, check. Handout and spinning supplies for Spinning Hand-Dyed Fibres workshop, check. Now, to just find a moment to pack our bags, laptop, and the 50…

SweetGeorgia at Unwind Brighton

Do you have plans for this summer? Perhaps you’d like to join me in Brighton, the lovely seaside resort in the south of England. I’m thrilled to say that I’ve been invited to teach and speak at the first-ever Unwind Brighton yarn and fibre festival! Unwind Brighton will be held July 12 and 13 and…

A Year in Review: 2013

Every year, I write a year-end closing post. It’s cathartic. It sweeps away the detritus of the year passed and makes way for something new. This past year, my “something new” has made my brain mush and made it a challenge to string multiple phrases together (ask me how many times I just re-worded that…

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…

TNNA 2013 in Long Beach Recap

It’s been less than 10 days since we got back from Long Beach, but already those short days feel like a blur! The Long Beach trade show was our third time showing at TNNA and each time it seems like we have a whole new set of challenges to overcome. This time, the challenge was…

June 2012 TNNA Recap

…And we’re back. It’s been a couple weeks since Teresa, Carina and returned home from the TNNA trade show in Columbus, Ohio and we’ve been busy getting settled and back into the flow of dyeing and fibre club orders and more. This was our first time attending the show in Columbus (second time showing at…
