Where to begin?

That is what I keep asking myself, there is so much going on and still so much to do that it is hard to know where to begin. First, a little catching up. Last weekend we went on a book scouting trip to Charlottesville, something we do a couple of times a year. The day was good, we spent a lot of time in our favorite bookstore and a little time in some of the others.

Then on the way home we stopped by Stoney Mountain Fibers about five miles outside of Charlottesville, if you haven't stopped by there, you are truly missing out! The quality of the roving and yarns made there are very special! Barbara only carries the best, in supplies, parts and equipment. Everything you need is there, books, parts, wheels, looms, needles, roving, balls, skeins, hanks, and cones of wool and cotton alike.

She has a website as well, if you are not in Virginia. If you are in Virginia, it is worth the drive!

I know I stocked up when I was there! And you can't find a more gracious hostess/shop keeper. Ready to help, answer questions, chat about the craft, or just let you browse. I really can't say enough good things.

In other news, tomorrow is the Knit, Place, Show at Colonial Downs racetrack! A day for knitters to come and knit and watch a little harness racing. A group of use are going and it should be fun. This is the first time I have gone to the Colonial Downs and I think this is the first fiber related day they have had there, should be loads of fun!

And I may have mentioned this before, but changes are coming to Stitches and Stories, exciting wonderful changes, so stay tuned. With everything going on, and all the preparations, I think everything will be in place by the end of October to include a new webpage and an online store. The webpage should be completed before the middle of October, so please stay tuned, it's going to be so much fun!
