I grew up in Maine. (Midcoast / Bath region, for thems who know where that is.) I love Maine. It’s one of my longest dreams to move back there. (Ask me how many math-type jobs there are in Maine.)
So when the opportunity came to submit a class proposal to the most excellent Fiber College, I couldn’t resist. And I was beside myself thrilled when my proposal was accepted. I mean, the company I’m keeping! (And there are so many more wonderful instructors I can’t link to them all–check out the class listings yourself.)
Fiber College is in beautiful, beautiful Searsport (right next to Belfast), which is absolutely one of my most favorite places. The event is held at a campground but there are lots of really reasonably-priced lodging options if you’re not a camper by nature. The season is winding to its close, everyone is more relaxed but the weather is still beautiful, there are classes on every kind of creative endeavor you can think of-… …it’s just the perfect event in the perfect place.
I”m excited to be teaching a longer version of my popular Fit to Flatter class that includes a custom sweater design for each participant. It’ll be so fun, I hope you can join us!
To throw a little fun into the mix, I’m giving away a free pass for the Saturday Evening Dinner at Fiber College. This includes a Show and Tell session and a cocktail reception before the sit down dinner with slide show lecture by Artist in Residence Mary Jane Mucklestone. (Not to be missed!) This pass may be given to a companion if the Fiber College Package you signed up for already includes the dinner. To win, just leave a comment here sometime before July 31st. I’ll randomly select a winner on the 5th of August.
So come on… you know you want to join us. :)
