    While all of the edible delights would be really appreciated, the fiber artist in me is particularly attracted to the hand-woven towel. I’d love to have the opportunity to have a close look at it, and see how it could inspire my own weaving. And, of course, I would use it, too – just like I want people to use the things I make for them – because that’s what it’s been made for!
