Was it the moment I saw the silk scarves? The stenciled paper? The cotton and hemp yarns? I tried to avoid the sway of a new pathway. I walked into that Madrona marketplace THREE times before I got any further than the Kakishibu Booth run by the lovely Chris Conrad. This morning, I simply caved.
Be patient, gentle readers and fiberholics. Soon, we shall discover together the mysteries of persimmons, tannin molecules, katazome, shibori and bengara. I promise.
But, after the wee marketplace shopping spree, (where my wayward Japanese-themed ways continued with a Habu purchase, a book on Shibori dying techniques and some silky cotton/rayon yarn) there was glass to explore at the Tacoma Museum of Glass.
