Off to Franklin, Indiana....???!!!
Tonight, maybe about 5:00, I'm going to get in the wonderful, new-ish VW Beetle and head for the fiber festival at Franklin, Indiana, which is just to the south of Indianapolis. I will aim for Fort Wayne, which is maybe 90 minutes away from Indianapolis -- no point in trying to swim the whole pool in one lap!!! Besides, the festival doesn't open until noon on Friday, so I could actually rest a little bit in the morning, knit, sip some good coffee at a decent espresso shop (if I can find one) and mosey on down to Franklin. This isn't a huge festival, and I note with some alarm that they are padding the resume, so to speak, with some potters and soapmakers. But -- I'm sure to find some new people who deal in yarn and roving. So it's a done deal. I'll of course take my camera and make report. Indiana has some of THE best collectible and antique shops in the midwest, so maybe I can find some truly cool vintage buttons!!!!!!! I return sometime Friday night. svb
