When we finally arrived in Lancaster, our flight was late and my luggage didn't make the hop in Baltimore, so I was suitcase free, and we were already an hour past the end of setup time for our booth. Fortunately for us, the fantabulous Norma Batastini was in charge and had all of our boxes at the booth and the security guard was aware of our arrival and let us in to set up. Three cheers for Norma!
As expected, the rugs were exceptional. Here are some of my favorite rugs - I am crediting them best I can, but if any of you see any mistakes, please let me know at email@example.com:
I'm working on a rug with circles right now...no, wait, I'm LOOKING at a rug with circles and scratching my head because I'm too intimidated by them. Maybe while I'm in Vermont next week at Green Mountain I will make some headway on that rug.
Here are our booth neighbors, Gail and Deb at RHM. I get so excited when I get my new issues!
We had three of our amazing distributors vending at the show, and I had dinner with Susan Feller of Ruckman Mill Farm and Martha Reeder of Going Gray (and her sister Liz and brother in law Jerry), and lunch with another distributor, Gene Shepherd. Terry Dorr, you are on my meal list in Vermont!
