Another Rhinebeck has come and gone . . . What a wild weekend it was! The weather was exquisite, and the crowds were enormous. Someone asked me how it was and I replied that it was exhilarating and exhausting. I returned home on Monday, after breakfast with Barb at the Eveready Diner in Hyde Park, during which we recapped the show and squared away plans for the Fiber Festival of New England on November 5 & 6. I was still tired on Tuesday.
We saw so many of our friends and customers -- it really felt as if we saw the whole world in a weekend. One long-time customer brought me 2 yards of beautiful wool. We heard about births and deaths and divorce, surgeries and celebrations, illnesses and ingenuity. It was a whole year of life encapsulated in these two special days that happen the third weekend of October every year.
