May 2005 Trip to Raleigh
We visited with relatives in Raleigh, North Carolina in May. While there, we stopped at the "Stitch 'n Belch" at the
RiRa Irish Pub on Sunday, May 15th, and the gathering of knitters at Borders in Cary on the following Tuesday morning.
We never go anywhere without visiting local textile sites. So, we also went to Great Yarn in Raleigh and Shuttle Needles
& Hooks in Cary. At the College of Textiles at North Carolina State University, we toured their spinning, weaving, and
knitting labs courtesy of Tim Pleasants and William Barefoot.
We also paid a visit to Seagrove, North Carolina, where dozens of small potteries turn out wonderful hand-crafted ceramics.
