Returning to the Studio – Wed. 10/28/09

25 10 2009

Ahhh, we are almost home! We have been on the road since last Sunday at the crack of daylight, traveling to Grand Canyon with all kinds of fun stops along our journey. We found ourselves ‘Standing on a Corner on Winslow, Arizona” just yesterday, gettin’ our kicks on Route 66 the same day! We visited the Grand Canyon, the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, toured the Celestial Seasonings plant, and Schacht Spindle and Loom Company in Boulder, and much more.  It has been an awesome trip. We traveled 700+ miles today, and will do the same tomorrow, finishing our trip on Tues…. a day early….. with a little over 600 miles (WHEW!).  Total miles have not been calculated, but it looks like 4000+ miles for the 8 days.

Don’t ask me how few I drove;0)

I’m looking forward to being back in the studio with you all on Wed. and then Thurs and with the folks in the Learn to Weave in a Weekend class on Sat. and Sunday. I still have an opening in the weaving class this weekend, and a couple of spaces in the Wed. night weaving classes beginning in Nov. Hope you will join us in my weaving and fiber arts studio in Richmond, VA.

Vacation

19 10 2009

Hi everyone. For the next 9 days, there won’t be any posts about my exhibition, Unsighted, at the Cultural art center at glen allen, weaving classes, spinning classes, or felting classes in Richmond, VA. Instead, I’ll be on vacation.

Two girlfriends and I are crossing the US from Virginia to the Grand Canyon in an RV. You can track our progress at:

come see our progress, encourage us and enjoy.

new spinner in the studio 10/2/09

2 10 2009

There is a new spinning student in the studio.  I’m posting pictures of her spinning, and of some of the Northern lights varigated pencil roving spun up. It’s lovely.

The student’s yarn is corriedale, but her real interest is in spinning and raising alpacas;0)
