2018 was our inaugural wool.calm event. We kicked off the weekend with a lovely dinner at Sullivan's restaurant in Downtown Maryville. Our guest speaker, Francis Chester, the highly charismatic and energetic founder and owner of Cestari Yarns regaled us with stories of his life, business, and the yarn industry. By the end of the evening most of the attendees were considering raising some sheep!
The next two days were filled with demonstrations, make & takes, and book signings at both shops.
We hope those of you who were able to attend had as much fun as those of us who organized the event! If you missed it in 2018 we hope you'll be able to join us in 2019 for another relaxing and creative event!
