April 8,9 & 10: Northern CA Handweavers Guild Conference

Our boxes have already arrived in Modesto and I will be heading out there mid-week so Solitude Wool can represent at the Conference of Northern California Handweavers (AKA CNCH, or cinch). This is a regional association of five different Guilds, and I've heard some high praise of these folks from weavers out here. Excited to show off four new handwoven samples from four different weavers and four different Solitude yarns: Coopworth lace weight, Montadale light, Border Leicester re-twist and Llama-rama! We will also have skeins of yarn for knitting and crochet. We have quite a number of online customers from Northern California, and I hope I get the chance to meet many of you. Come to Modesto!

A big thank you to everyone who came to our Open House on September 10th. You guys were GREAT! Kathy Reed was our roving photographer (officially Solitude Wool’s Chief Knit Knut) and she captured many of you who pitched it and picked, plucked, smooshed, stirred, strained, dipped and admired.
