Fabric/Fashion Ghost (Sofia 2013) | photo by Abigail Doan
I am back in Bulgaria now, and even though this past week has not at all been a slow or gentle transition to my life here, it has given my some distance and perspective on all of the amazing, creative folks who I seem to have 'spherical relationships' with. Some of these individuals are artist/designer friends who I know personally, and others are like-minded makers and thinkers who seem to be such a part of the special orb that I examine regularly and with such fervent curiosity.
As I now launch into some serious archiving and hands-on work for Lost in Fiber: The Gathering, I wanted to highlight (and thank) a few people who I was fortunate to connect with while in NYC. These encounters somehow already made my autumn feel more complete.
