Purls of Wisdom
In what has become a perennial event, The Handwork Studio is once again taking the show on the road!
Last summer, Miss Julia and I embarked on a journey that would become one of the most adventurous craft excursions to date; and in a matter of days the craftsome twosome will do it once more!
Over the past several weeks we have been cutting, stitching, rolling balls of yarn, felting, putting in zippers, tracing patterns and packing boxes in preparation for the tour, and in year two it’s a lot easier!
Here’s what we have gleaned from our first year on the road
We now know how to expertly pack The Handwork Studio Mobile in record time.
We know now that putting the ironing board on top of everything in the van means it will fly forward when we step on the brakes.
Always check to make sure you have your cell phone & GPS
Kids in EVERY STATE OF THE UNION LOVE TO MAKE THINGS!
You never wear all of the clothes that you pack.
Yarn is a universal language
In the year that has passed since Miss Julia and I left for our first Road Tour we have spent many, many days reminiscing about the fun that was had in our new camps and the friends we made along the way. What’s even better is that since we will be returning to places that we visited last summer we get to see those that have now become our old friends!
I have to admit; there is a different type of excitement that I feel now. One of familiarity and comfort knowing the adventure that being on the road will bring, and being able to follow the footsteps that we left for ourselves last summer. Here’s to another great trip!
