Weavers Guild of St. Louis Annual Show

I've been in Missouri since Thursday visiting my parents and seeing old friends and the place I grew up so many years ago.  Today I'm leaving Poplar Bluff and driving to St. Louis where I'll be participating in the Weavers' Guild annual show.  This will be my 12th year (I think) to do this show.  It doesn't seem like it's been that many years.

If you live in the area I encourage you to come see all the wonderful creations the talented guild members will have for sale.  Click here for all the info.

Art Is You - Three Speckled Hens - Santa Barbara and Flying

Art Is You Petaluma was another wonderful experience of meeting up with old friends, teaching how to repurpose garments into a fun and arty new one, meeting new friends, and vending.  It always seems like such a whirlwind as we try to connect with so many likeminded people in such a short time.  I was so happy my sister Jan was able to join me and was such a big help too!

Here are some of the garments being created in my "Reconstructed, Upcycled, and Wearable!" class.

Getting together on vendor night!

and after

I was home for a few days and then took off to Paso Robles to meet Riki Schumacher at Three Speckled Hens while Michael played golf with friends.  I still get nervous flying in that small plane but I do it anyway.  So nice to get places faster!

At the end of the day we flew on to Santa Barbara to spend the night with cousins.  Marvelous dinner at The Palace Grill!  

Flying home the next day.

Fire near the Watsonville airport where we refueled.
