How my friend Charity & I attended is that this show happened to also be open to the public and I was fortunate enough to find out about it through Tacoma Sewing and Design School newsletter that Ryliss puts out regularly.
The show was held at an embassy suites where the rooms all face an inner court yard. Those who have been to Art and Soul in Portland years past, same floor plan. Some vendors were not interested once they learned we were not fabric business folk. But others were very kind and showed us their many products. Dan Rimmon had many fabrics that could be purchased in small quantities (2-15 yards). See the photos of the yummy purple and blue hemp knits, oh swoon! And he had tons of liberty. Very nice guy. I will definitely be in touch.

The day with Charity finished by a visit to Phinney Ridge where we stopped into the Fiber Gallery, a lovely shop that had a Rowan book I wanted, followed by lunch at Hummus Cafe and hot chocolate across the street.
