The Shepherd's Rug is a book about braiding a rug using wool roving. We are conducting workshops throughout the country to sell the book and teach others about the process. This blog will describe our experiences, so keep up and braid on...
I just returned from a great trip to Vermont. Traveling companion, Amy Tyler from Interlocken, Michigan, and I were both invited to teach three workshops at the biennial retreat of the Northeastern Handspinners Association. This 3-day event was held at the Grand Summit Resort and Conference Center on Mount Snow near West Dover, VT.
With Amy's Subaru packed with a spinning wheel, fiber and class materials, we took the northern route through Canada, to reach the beautiful Green Mountains of southern Vermont. Amy and I had never really met before, but we hit it off great, and were even roomies at the resort. The wonderful and memorable thing about this event was that for 3 days we didn't have to leave the resort. Meals were served buffet-style and were excellent. I used the guest laundry to felt the class braids, so I didn't even have to dash to a laundromat, I even got to eat lunch.
The good/bad result of this trip was that I sold all the books that I had. Our book is now OUT-OF-PRINT!
