Stitches West Yarn Show - Day 1 Quick Recap

The first day at Stitches was a whirlwind of energy and excitement.   Kristin said she felt like a little kid at Disneyland with all the yarn, fiber and fiber arts enthusiasts.  The show was really, really busy.  In fact Jody and our crew had to park 4 blocks away and make the hike back to the convention center.  Kristin is due in a couple of weeks but she's a trooper and made the hike along with the rest of us. Lot's of folks noticed the Alpaca Direct ambassador shirts and wanted to participate in the photo contest we set up on our Facebook page.
