Annemie Koenen who has been studying felt in Kyrguzstan. Bruce stayed on to make a felt covering for his model and learned so much. I went down for the middle day between workshops to check out this wondrous place ....Snow Farm.
Snow Farm is a craft school situated in the hills west of Northampton, MA. An old farm using its building for workshops, camps, elderhostel classes. I'm intrigued and want to get back there to take classes.
Finnish rugs of great beauty. Here the students are laying out the fleece, high pillows of fleece, before rolling in felt...wish I could be a fly on the wall, but I needed to find my way home, stopping at Webs for supplies, chenille to spark my imagination for the next chenille scarves and fleece to begin my needle felting self teach projects. I am pumped.
Oh, shoot, another server rejection....raining here, Irene affects us in Vermont. It has been raining for hours, the ground is saturated, but the heavy rain and winds are still to come. What natural effects affect us in the east. A hurricane in Vermont! Hope we all get through this one without too much disaster.
