I had the immense pleasure of talking with our own Gail Callahan, a.k.a. The Kangaroo Dyer.  Gail’s first book is about to be released and to say that we’re excited would be the understatement of the year!  Hand Dyeing Yarn and Fleece will be available in just a few short weeks.  I know I am biased when I say this, but the book is fabulous.  It’s chock full of great information that is organized in a very logical and readable way.  The pictures are glorious and to top it off – it’s spiral bound!

We are currently taking pre-orders for Gail’s book so be sure to order yours!  The cost is $18.95 and remember it’s part of our WEBS discount!

We’ll also be hosting the official launch party for Gail and her book on Sunday, February 21st from 12-4.  Yes – a rare Sunday opening!  It’s going to be a great party so be sure to plan to join us.  To help us be sure we have enough food, etc., please register for this free event by calling Customer Service at 1.800.367.9327.

Enjoy!

Kathy
