NWRSA spinning convention

A few weeks ago when I was in Bellingham at my favorite fiber haunt, Northwest Handspun Yarns, people kept asking me "coming to the convention?!" and so I had to see what was up. Turns out the Northwest Region Spinning Association giant spinning and fiber fest was upon us, so I grabbed my friend sara and we drove just down the street from here and had a BLAST
