Fiber Forum 2011, the beginning

Yes, it's true: Tuesday Weavers' Guild is sponsoring 2011 Southeast Fiber Forum! The work has begun in earnest, and we are very excited! I met with the board members at Arrowmont, site of the event, in Gatlinburg, TN last week. This week, I asked for, and got, volunteers for the jobs that need to start right now. There will be much more to do later, but for now, noses are to grindstones, fingers are tapping out emails and the excitement is building. Above is the teachers' quarters, a lovely building, furnished with antiques and framed fiber arts.

Here are some of the classrooms. You can see they are well-lit and spacious, with just the right accessories, like sinks, burners, dye pots, easy to clean surfaces. With me on the tour are Judi Jetson, Susan Vezina and Marjorie Warren, some of the team that put together the Southeast Fiber Forum in 2009. They are so helpful and generous. I know we couldn't do this without their help and guidance, and we are very grateful.
As things progress, we will keep you posted, but for now, mark your calendars: April 29 & 30, and May 1, 2011. Get ready to learn and relax and have a fabulous time!
