It’s Weaving Within Reach Book Tour time, and I am thrilled with how it is shaping up! Currently, I have stops all over the country throughout the fall, including New York, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Minneapolis! Scroll down and see if I’m stopping in your neck of the woods.
I use the term “Book Tour” to indicate my actual physical travel around the country to celebrate my book as different from my “Blog Tour,” which is a blog hop to and from some of my favorite spaces on the internet. Huge thanks to all the Blog Tour super stars for their enthusiasm and gorgeous photos.
I’ve already been to the first couple of stops on the Weaving Within Reach Book Tour, and we’ve been having so much fun in the classes and events. Thank you to all who have already come out. Included in this blog post are all the pretty things that we’ll be making. I get to make the basketweave pillows above with you all at Cattywampus in Ojai, CA and at A Verb for Keeping Warm in Oakland, CA.
We get to make the Twill Woven Cowl at Purl Soho in New York! This project requires nothing but a piece of cardboard and gorgeous yarn – amazing! Plus, teaching at Purl is definitely a bucket list item for me.
Lastly, you can expect to see lots of bowls out there which seem to be the biggest hit from the book. I LOVE teaching this class and above all adore seeing you making them all over Instagram. Keep making and I’ll keep sharing.
Certainly, if you are in any of these areas, please come join me for a great day of weaving!

Of course, I hope you have ordered and received Weaving Within Reach! I know many of you have because I’ve been seeing copies pop up all over Instagram. Keep coming with those stories and posts showing me what your making and all your excitement. This energy fuels me more than you know! Similarly, I’d be remiss if I didn’t ask for you to rate the book on Amazon as that has such a huge effect on who sees it and how they order it etc.
