Horrendous journey to textile heaven!

Horrendous journey to textile heaven!

Technical problems twice on the runway in Dublin meant a change of plane and a missed connection in Paris. Diverted to SF via LA and human error Paris meant another missed connection LA. Eventually arrived SF ten and a half hours late but all the horror of the journey has been pushed to the back of my mind by the wonederful welcome from Emma, Sharon, Mark and Chris at the AMAZING textile heaven The Tin Thimble in Loomis!!! Tommorow we start day one of our complex felt bag class and hopefully I will take some pictures and post them to the blog so you can all see the fantastic felt that is being created and the inspirational surroundings and friendly faces.

    Good morning Nicola,

    And, I’ll bet that by now, with a little rest under your belt, and the marvelous interactions with your students and hosts, that all of those set-backs are but a distant memory now. Have a great time in California…Can’t wait to hear all about it. I’ll see you in just a little over a week:-)

    Hugs,
    Dawn

    Hopefully it will be a distant memory soon, crowded out by lovely people and fibre. Have a great time in my lovely homeland! Enjoy the leaves in MI.

    Hi Holly,

    I don’t know if you’ll see this reply, but where did you live when you were here in the U.S.?

    The leaves haven’t started changing much yet (or falling either for that matter)…I think it’s because we had such a hot summer. It’s just started cooling off, so I expect any day now, that I’ll have to be digging my rake out of storage:-)

    Hugs,
    Dawn
