Here's a shot of the gallery with visitors:

Isn't Edwina one of the Penland weavers? Didn't or doesn't she have a sister? Really pulling at my memory here, but she looks darn familiar from a book I think...

Yes, Rebecca! Edwina Bringle is indeed totally associated with Penland! Her sister, Cynthia, is a potter and has her studio adjacent to the school property.

Both Edwina and Cynthia have been important to Penland for many decades. Edwina was my first weaving teacher, in fact! I took a class with her at Penland in about 1975. I always think of her as my weaving guru, the one who taught me to try anything and see where it might take it. She's been (and continues to be) a wonderfully inspiring role model for anyone who takes her classes.
