Amazing Threads LOVES Andrea Mowry: What a weekend! New Papillon & Streamlines, TOO
My favorite quote from Andrea Mowry this weekend,
"Knitting is my happy place, no mean people welcome here." Yes..knitting is zen. It keeps me sane, happy and helps me de-stress. I know all of the staff AND many of our customers feel the same way.
It was a wonderful weekend with Andrea and we learned Sooooo Much! Andrea is a great designer, colorist, and knitter. But most of all she is kind, welcoming, and upbeat! It was a pleasure to be in her classes. She will launch 3 new designs in the next 10 days so watch Ravelry to see what's new! Here are a few pictures of the fun we enjoyed!
We are busy planning for the upcoming SHOP HOP!
