I already had a copy of the Fleece & Fiber Sourcebook but hadn't realized that Deborah Robson was going to be attending Madrona AND that she was making herself available to sign this AMAZING book! One of the most complete assemblages of fiber review material I have ever seen, this book is full of gorgeous photos and valuable facts about some of the animals that provide us with fiber. I went to the Acorn Street Shop booth, bought another copy, and marched over to Deborah to get her to autograph it for me. (I have a thing for autographed books... this one will go in my collection along with books signed by the likes of Kaffe Fassett and Elizabeth Zimmerman!)
If you have yet to peruse (or own!) this book, I strongly suggest getting it. Call your local yarn shop, book store or order from the folks at the Acorn Street Shop - They can sell you a book over the phone and get it to you in a jiffy.
I looked around for a drop spindle with plans to spend time with Michael Wade to learn how to spin... but time got away from us and it didn't happen on this trip. I do, however, have a nice basic "workhorse" spindle from Ashford courtesy of Herndon Creek Farm (Tacoma, WA), and some beautifully dyed romney roving from Rain Shadow Yarn.
