Fiber Gathering Designer Blog Tour!

One of the great joys and challenges of writing Fiber Gathering was finding designs that represented the breadth and depth of the amazing fiber arts design available in the United States. It just wasn't possible for me to do all the designs on my own along with travelling to all those festivals. Instead, I did 11 of the book projects (the projects without named designers) and found help. Without those competent colleagues, these additional and wonderful designs wouldn't have been possible. Their contributions lent a great deal to the final product.

Several of the designers, as well as the technical editor, and the photographer (the professor) have agreed to help us take another kind of trip together.

We're participating in the Fiber Gathering designers’ blog tour! Fifteen talented designers contributed their designs to this book about U.S. fiber festivals...and just about half of these designers have blogs and wanted to go on tour!

Do some armchair travelling with us every day at the beginning of April to celebrate the release of the book. There will be posts about designs, festivals, photography, and interviews with the author. (psst! that's me!)

Please drop by and visit as we tour the blog world and celebrate our fiber festival community!

My copy of your book was delivered about 2 weeks ago, I LOVE IT. I live in NH and was delighted to see the Apple Crisp recipe since that is a must have when we go to the NHSW. Now I'm trying to make up my mind which pattern to make first. Thank you so much for an interesting book!! Steph in NH

I've been perusing your book for the past 2 days. It's so much fun! Makes me want to do a lot of traveling. The part on skirting a fleece alone is worth the price of the book, that scares me. And it's nice to see JoLene Treace turn up, I love her stuff.
