Well, we listened to Stephanie Pearl-McPhee’s infomative and very funny talk, she signed our book, let us take a picture, and we gave her beads.
It was amazing. She is as funny in person, and we all felt like an old friend had stopped by to catch us up on important stuff. And everything she said about knitting totally applies to beading too, really!! Between knitters and beaders, it’s only a matter of time till we take over the world.
And the funniest thing? Watching the bookstore staff as they watched an overflow crowd knitting. Standing knitting, sitting knitting, laughing knitting. The first question was about her dishwasher, that’s how nerdy we all are. It was fabulous, and totally worth getting home at 11. Really a great evening.
