Tina and I went on an adventure Saturday and flew down to Stitches West in Santa Clara, CA. It made for a long day trip, but it was definitely packed with delicious fiber-y goodness. There were no photos or videos allowed inside the convention center, but we were able to see some kind of commotion out on the street as we approached the show.

We couldn't quite make out what was going on, and when we crossed the street...

Fuzzy fiber ambassadors!

One of the ladies handling the alpacas said that the little brown guy was only 4 months old! I'm such a sucker for them, and these two were so petite I could almost convince myself that my yard is big enough for one. :)

I only live an hour and a half away. I wish I had known about it. Every year I go to the Quilt Show held in October at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Now I guess I have to put this on my calendar so I don't miss it next year.

OMG, do you think I could convince the City of Houston, that they are dogs? We are anxious to see what you and Tina came back with.

Great era! Would love to see those. Please post pictures. We now get to ask you Allison what's your fancy yarn? :)

Overflowing! And not just yarn, either. I found some incredible 1920's Chinese buttons at this fantastic booth. I'll have to take a picture, they're so cheerful and ready to dress up a cute knit sweater.
