We just got home from the 8th annual Arizona Fiber Arts Retreat in Prescott, Arizona. 2019 was a banner year for this fun and information-rich event! It's a place to make new friends and connect with old ones, meet master instructors and talk shop over lunch, enjoy a fashion show, and take an incredible fiber-related workshop or two (e.g. weaving, needle- and wet-felting, shibori and indigo dyeing, naalbinding, and more!). The word has spread and workhops filled up almost immediately... so mark your calendar if you want to get in on this in January 2020! I was lucky enough to be able to teach another Vessels & Votives class this year with an amazing bunch of creatives. We worked hard and had some good laughs... and everyone walked away with a beautiful handmade vessel or votive that they were proud of. Great job, everyone!
