Last week I didn't blog because I could not figure out how to add pictures. DH spent all week trying to figure it all out. I should be writing tomorrow but if I wanted help, I needed to do it tonight. So, we finally made it work using google chrome. I hope I remember how I got there next week!! This is the weirdest thing. We tried everything, foxfire, HTML, etc etc. Nothing worked til now. I'm going to write fast so it hopefully publishes at the end of this!!!
So, it never rains, it pours. I've been a member of the Art Market Gallery for a very long time, since somewhere in the beginning of the 80s, after the World's Fair in 82 but a couple of years before they moved to the Candy Factory in about 86. The Candy Factory is on the World's Fair site but the city decided to sell the building for condos so we had to look for another location within the last 7 years or so. One of our members husband is a bit of an entrepreneur and he bought our current space. He gives us a pretty good rent as well because he wants to stay married!
This is the 30th year that they've been in operation and they had the about 9 of us that are still either current members or members that still pay their dues but don't exhibit. The Knoxville News Sentinel did a nice story on it in today's paper and my jacket is on the back page. Not bad, I'd say! I couldn't be there when they interviewed several members on Tuesday. Right, I was up at Norris with the Tuesday Weavers! That's when Channel 10 was up there interviewing us for the segment on Live at Five at Four!
So that's my shows. Yesterday we finally celebrated our daughter's birthday shopping and eating around town. During the night it developed that I must have gotten food poisoning because I was sicker than I"ve ever been before. I still feel like a wet noodle tonight.
Here's hoping that I"ll feel better by Tuesday when the Tuesday Weavers get back together. We've got the second part of the class I'm teaching about beginning weaving structures, how to read Handwoven, do drawdowns, etc. Ended up with 12 students and am so glad that the response has been positive.
That's one of the reasons I like to go to weaving conferences, to keep my knowledge fresh. There are alot of things I still don't understand. I plan to head over to Midwest Weavers Conference in Kansas in June. Yup, take preconference and everything. There are several classes that look very good!! Hopefully someone from here will go with me to help the time go by quickly because it is kind of a long drive!
It's raining tonight after a couple of very pretty days in Knoxville. It was 70 yesterday, quite a contrast to the blizzard they had in Moose Jaw and all over Saskatchewan and probably Manitoba as well.
I'm so glad I leave down here in the south!!
Here's hoping I"ll feel better tomorrow so that I can get another warp on a loom, this time the baby wolf. Until next week, keep weaving!
