Here I am with Susan Hinckley of Small Works in Wool, at the One of a Kind Show, we had a lovely chat. It is always so much fun seeing her lovely humorous felted pieces.
Pat Owoc, who I met in St. Louis, manning her sisters booth for the show. Pat uses disperse dyes to create beautiful atmospheric scenes on polyester, that have a beautiful luminosity, be sure to check her work out.
After a couple hours of walking around the show, I actually only made it down 3 aisles of this enormous show since I got distracted by a couple really good booths, we had lunch in the little food court of the merchandise mart building. Frieda, Trish and Laura are having an impromptu SAQA meeting, they are our regional reps, looks like some serious business, huh.
Gretl, an avid knitter, worked through lunch. She is knitting a shawl with Emily Parson's Sophies Toes sock yarn in a beautiful olive green color with bits of cranberry red.
This is when Trish and crew were singing the cold song waiting for me to take a picture. Winter has definitely arrived in Chicago.
A kind stranger offered to take a group picture of us, maybe it was to quiet the ruckus, lol!
