Hit the NM Fiber Trails!

I'm missing New Mexico already but am comforted by the fact I still have one more return trip planned in October for the main purpose of yarn. So, speaking of yarn, I thought I'd share a resource for fiber galleries, trading posts and farms through the New Mexico Fiber Arts Trails. Here you'll find a guide to more than 200 fiber artists and 71 destinations in this beautiful state. So, post this map on your cork board and hit the trails to collect your own New Mexico fiber. I found this lovely hand dyed silk at The Common Thread in downtown Silver City. (Found the matching turquoise belt buckle on my way home in Gallup, NM). Also made a stop at Yada Yada Yarn that was right around the corner.
