On my way back from Shetland and Wool Week

I am currently in Aberdeen and take the flights home tomorrow.

Even though I've been privileged to visit there a number of times before, the time on Shetland was as enjoyable as always. Wool Week was well organized, with many workshops, events and visits, that sometimes it was difficult to make a decision on what to attend.

As always, the Shetlanders were very friendly and welcoming. This year was special as the Shetland Guild of Spinners, Weavers, Knitters and Dyers have produced a book of lace designs, with biographies of the designers. More to come in future posts.

I haven't forgotten about the tours for 2013. Soon after I return home, I expect to have the final details I need to give everyone who is waiting the tour cost and to open registration.

HI Joyce, I've seen some photos from wool week, seems like lots of exciting things are happening in Shetland! I saw the new Shetland Heritage wool in traditional colors...very neat. Do you read Kate Davies blog called "Needled"? If not, you should! take care
