    Just listened to your last three episodes! I got behind! They were all great…so much to take in. Just wanted to mention that my husband and I have travelled to Townsend TN to the smoky Mountains the last two spring breaks. We’ve stayed near Cades cove and last year I saw the signs for the fiber rest that had taken place the week before. Sad I missed it. But, both years we went to the smoky man spinnery and I met nancy. She was so helpful both times…gave me some help on a project I was working in at the time. My hubby is an avid fly fisherman and had no problem “waiting” while I shopped! Thanks for the memories…we are staying home this year:(. But, at least Ohio is warm right now!

    Thanks for the great podcast…I hope to cross your paths some day. Good luck on the wedding, Dana!

    Happy Belated Birthday, Dana! From a fellow March 8 birthday gal. I hope it was filled with amazing fiber and none of the jewel encrusted heads. 🙂
