Comments about Stitches: 

Class from Toni Lipsey, very entertaining and knowledgeable. Has a new book The Tunisian Crochet Handbook.

Fabrics–jelly rolls, fat quarters and other fabrics. Japanese fabrics, 

Trends–red, black, grey combinations are in every booth. This is not something that we saw a lot before. Another color trend: orange. Another one but a little less is petal pink, often looking like it was overdyed on a natural colored fiber or with a darker color overwash or glaze over the pink–or maybe that was just something I was drawn to this time. 

Feels really safe in the convention center, checked Vax card and ID upon entry, name tag has distance declaration sticker code–hugs ok, elbow bump only, and 6 feet distance please. Crowd was light at the Thursday preview. Hotel lobby bar people are drinking and eating so many fewer masks.

Friday's crowd was also light, but there were some crowded booths. Everyone seems so happy to be buying yarn. One vendor said sales were fewer, but the average sale was higher. 

Saturday was the busiest market day as usual. But the market was smaller and we had finished looking at the whole thing, plus visiting with people we saw there, within a couple hours of entering.
