It’s been years since Kathy Esch has spent time relaxing during the State Fair! Over 20 years, in fact. This year we are celebrating the Great Minnesota Get together at her yarn shop in Anoka, MN! On Saturday, the 25th from 11-2 I’ll be there talking about the wonderful fiber art in the recently released Fiber Art Almanac! Kathy has a paper-pieced quilt featured in the book with a sisterly story to go with it. Here’s a link to the shop: The Shepherdess She’s offering 20% off Shepherdess brand products! Kathy makes her own lotions, shampoo, soaps, cleaning products and has hand spun yarn from her flock of alpaca! Also check out the wonderful Anoka Fiber Arts Co-op within the store.

See you there tomorrow!
