If you’re Rhinebeck bound this year, we’d love to see you there.
We’ll be in the Merritt Books booth—a dazzling wonderland where you’ll meet a ton of authors and designers. It’s in Building B, around the corner from the picnic tables, and across the way from the kettle corn, from 11-2 on Saturday, October 21 and Sunday, October 22. We’ll be selling and signing our four Field Guides (last year we had only one, No. 1). The rest of the time, we will of course be running around the festival looking at everything.
But we are also having a party!
A pie party!
We know people have a lot of plans for their Rhinebeck Saturday night, Oct. 21. (For example, Jill Draper Makes Stuff’s open studio night is a highlight, this year featuring special guest Rachel Atkinson, the Daughter of a Shepherd, and her beautiful yarns from England. We wrote about her last year.)
So our party is an early one. It will be in a private home near the fairgrounds, an open house that starts at 5 and ends at 8.
The concept is simple:
- Pie. Local pie. An assortment of delicious local pie.
- Hot apple cider. (Cold cider optional.)
- Friendly people wearing fabulous handknits, and fabulous people wearing friendly handknits.
We’d love to see you there. Because space is limited, we’re doing tickets (free tickets).
Here’s the link to the invitation.
Hope to see you there!
