The Taos Wool Festival is always my favorite event
of the year...but I must admit that this year, it got totally eclipsed by the awesomeness of having Lexi Boeger bring her Camp Pluckyfluff to Taos Sunflower. I went to the festival for only about an hour, anxious to get back to the shop to get ready for opening...and I was in such a hurry, I forgot to take photos. For a great photo journey of this year's festival, see Holly's art journal.
I was lucky enough to sit in on day #1 of the first class, and it was too much fun to be legal. Lexi is the best teacher
...and as classmates go, we were the best combination I've ever experienced in a class...totally neat people, lots of laughter, no one hogging air space. I want to thank each of you for sharing your class with me...Judy, Anne-Marie, Linda, Lorraine, Meaghan, Lexi (of course!) and my very special friend, Holly. You all just made my week.
Here are some random photos...
Lexi, at the Ashford Country Spinner, making her magic;
Anne-Marie, spinning her yellow mohairy yarn;
Meaghan showing off her first carded batt;
Holly deep in concentration getting her wheel ready for the day ahead.
My apologies to the rest of you...I took lots of photos that day, but they all came out far too dark for even photoshop to salvage.
Last, but certainly not least, here are the graduating classes.
Camp #1 on the left, Camp #2 on the right. Both camps were wonderful, and I thank you all for coming from so far to attend. Please keep in touch with us (sign up for our e-mail list, if you haven't already) and wait for news on what Lexi and I might cook up for this time next year...
Wahoooooo! Spin on.....---Martie
