|This is the view from our deck!!!|
Two weeks ago, I quit my day job. My husband and I will be moving very shortly from our home along the central coast of California, to the mountains of New Mexico near Albuquerque.
This has been a long time in the planning and we are very excited. It will mean that we will be semi-retired and I'll have a lot more time to devote to my weaving, blogging, teaching and fiber fun.
New Mexico's fiber culture and traditions go back centuries and this month in New Mexico Magazine, there is a lovely article which follows "the strands of New Mexico's staunch weaving traditions from sheep to shop". You can read it here: Dyed in the Wool.

I've been cultivating connections in New Mexico and and happy to say that I already belong to:
The New Mexy Etsy Team, The Espanola Valley Fiber Arts Center, Las Aranas Spinners and Weavers Guild. With a little luck, I'll get organized in time to participate in the following as my first show as a local: Fall Fiber Fiesta in Santa Fe during the weekend of November 14th & 15th.
