If you want me to bring anything to try (wheels, fiber, whatever) or want to just meet up while I am out and about, let me know and we can set up a meet. **************************************************** March 3 2022 I'll be at the Knitting Guild of Buffalo meeting and will have a vendor table set up with yarns and fiber.
