more from Arrowmont and Southeast Fiber Forum

The two and a half days, April 7-10,  were jam packed full of activity and here are a few more photos from "Back to the Mountains" event.  We worked hard, ate well (some might say too well!), spent money with vendors (some might say too much!) and were kept busy for every minute of the days and part of the nights we were there.  Around 100 people came together from all over the place to take part in the eight workshops, visit the vendors' booths, see and/or be in the fashion show, and hear two inspirational keynote addresses (Daryl Lancaster spoke on Thursday night and Catharine Ellis on Saturday night).  Lots of networking took place, old acquaintances renewed, and new friends were made.  Thank you, Southeast Fiber Forum Association board, for making it all happen so well!  And thank you, Arrowmont staff, for providing such a wonderful place to have this great event!  And especially I want to thank the 14 students who took the tapestry class with me and Mary Kircher, the teaching assistant.  Thanks for your patience and your exceptionally hard work!

Photos to peruse--again, no comments... just photos:

Hi Tommye, How fortunate to have found your blog. I tried tapestry, well quite some time ago now, and was inspired by your blog to try it again. Your colours are so vibrant. My tapestry is nothing like yours but if you'd like to have a look at what I've done, I'm at raggedyangels.blogspot.com

I look forward to seeing what you do next.
