Or is day 3? oh well, my day started out with volunteering with an assignment in the special exhibit area.
Part of this exhibit is the Dream Catcher Challenge. What is the Dream Catcher Challenge you might ask?
a dozen or so beautifully interpeted Dream Catchers… and we have the toughest job. To vote on our favorite!
we shared the room with Ruth Kern’s bookstore. It was great getting to see Ruth in person!
and the exhibit of Jan Jellins’ work. Unbelievable! Created on fabric in long and short stitches using sewing thread and floss. I kept studying and looking and looking as I marvelled at her work as she was for sure a most amazing artist.
The work of Vima Machelli… all the way from Italy!
Native Americans in their regallia!
wow look at all that eye candy through the window!
Passing by the shop on my way to the opening banquet.
A Native American blessing spoken in his tongue before we started eating. He then repeated in what he considered a foreign language…English!
Opening favors… an Ashland Sky gadget bag, an exclusive brand of Leigh Designs. Thrilled with it and the tin!

My class starts in 2 hours and I can’t wait!
and until next time…keep on stitching
