Class announcement one more time...and supplies you'll need.

I've set up a nuno felting class for Saturday, October 29th, at the Otsego Historic Society building, 218 North Farmer Street from 9AM-5PM in Otsego Michigan. We will dye the silk and then nuno the silk, like what I've shown in the photos above. Space is limited, it will be first come first serve so do let me know as soon as possible. You can let me know on Face Book or via my website email which is: Cost is 125.00 for the day. I will supply silks, dyes, mordant, and wools. Will have a complete list of supplies later. Remember, space is limited, first come first served.

Please bring with you:
lunch and water to drink
LARGE glass bowl that will never be used for food again
3 old towels
pool noodle if you have one
apron, if desired
we will be working in dyes so wear old clothes in case an accident happens or a plastic apron.
The class is now filled.
See you all then!

Rhinebeck, NY, I'm nearly on my way!

In a few short hours I leave for the New York Sheep and Wool Festival. I hope that if you are in the area you'll stop by. I have so many wonderful pieces of felt this year, some are mine, some from other friends spectacular felt works. I'll have a large number of hats, and some are really special. I will also have some wonderful works by Pam MacGregor, Jone Rakoski and Ellyn Bernstein and Barb Lambrecht. It's my favorite show all year, the folks are wonderful there. We are supposed to have rain, sadly but there are worse snow storms, which we had one year.
I'll tell you all about it when I get back. I am really looking forward to the travel (14 hours) and seeing everyone. I hope one of the folks I see is you!
