Amy’s Thread: Slater Mill/Portfolio Vol.1 Salon

Berroco Portfolio vol. 1 is near and dear to my heart – something I dreamed about doing – and getting to finally see the book come to life was the highlight of my first year at Berroco. This coming Sunday (October 25th) we will be hosting a designer salon to celebrate this collection.

It has magical pathways that lead to small coves along the coastline filled with bunnies, butterflies and flowering trees. I know it sounds too good to be true, but trust me… this place is the a hidden gem! As I was driving into the park, I was even more excited because I spotted pokeberries along the road.
