What a great few days we spent in Cashiers and then in Asheville(sorry no pictures because they are for hmmmm your personal use only) going to lots of fiber things-following a booklet we got at Waechters called the Fiber Trail
We hit the Asheville quilt show which was great as usual…and of course the vendors are terrific…bought tooo much Kaffe Fassett fabrics from Thimble Pleasures atCarrboro NC…this is a pic of some of the loot…not mine!!
Several list members had work in there Scott Murkin Strata Garden with Best Machine quilting
Lynn Harrell, Heat Wave as well as couple of others
Ruth Powers -Tuscan Villa
Bonnie Ouellette and her awesome Tabletop Aquarium
And darned if I didnt miss Meg Manderson again...she gave a talk on dirt dyeing...
Great work…AND Pamela Allen had the lead picture full page sized in the Laurel for
Asheville…a glossy mag about whats happening in
Asheville…now WHERE did you get all those geegaws on your lady Pamela?
There were a lot of good ones but I think hers was my
favorite…I didn’t see all of them as they were all over Asheville
in threes except for the gallery so we only saw those and the ones in Piece Garden where
Pamela's is…too hot to trek
all over sweaty Asheville in
search of the rest BUT if we are back on a cool day we will be…
Then into town to Waechters
(taking a newbee looking for color hue silk dye…they didn’t have it), Piece Gardens
where we bought even more Kaffe Fassets…Amy has a great collection, Artemis Gallery with is 24 of the Put a Roof over our head quilts and the Costume Shop and then to my parents for dinner…we would have stopped at Ben Franklins but we couldn’t find it…drive down twisty roads in the dark from Brevard to Cashiers…foggy ride…but neat to see the mt in the gloom with the fog floating up between them….
