From the publisher: 'Our fourth issue features the creativity and community of the Puget Sound Region. We travel from the Snoqualmie Valley to Bellingham Bay, from the south sound islands of Whidbey and Bainbridge, to busy downtown Seattle. Water in all its forms and nature in all its colors inspire the makers we meet and are evident in their creative expression. We meet local yarn dyers and spinners, visit a wonderful small community yarn store and wander through an organic flower farm, watch the making of small batch poured candles, visit the dye fields and sheep farm of a farm-to-needle yarn creator, and more. We talk with a quilter who uses fabric to record and preserve memories, and find sewing classes in a light-filled downtown Seattle fabric store. We watch fiber milled into farm-fresh yarn on bucolic Whidbey Island, and spend our day trip exploring the beauty of Bainbridge Island and visiting the iconic Churchmouse Yarns & Teas. Take a photographic journey with us and explore the beauty and creativity of the Puget Sound region.'
