Stateline Friends Weaving Retreat 2017 – I’m home sorting through my carload of stuff and a camera full of pictures. For those of you who missed this event – I am sorry. Hopefully you can join us next year. For those of you who were able to attend – it was great fun wasn’t it!?
This event is always bustling with energy. People talking. People laughing. People weaving baskets. People teaching basketry. People shopping for basket supplies. I hope that the photo journal I am sharing with you today gives you a sense of the enthusiasm in the air. I was teaching so I couldn’t catch everything or everyone but I think you will enjoy the walk through.
Love that smile! First class of the event – Farmer’s Market.
Deanna made a ‘Frank’ basket. Do you see the arrow! She did it her way – Love it!
Another smile and almost finished.
I think this is Lisa’s frustrated face :-/
Mary took a class this year
I don’t think random weave is her thing 😉
I appreciate Mary coming to man my booth – and it was fun to have a travel buddy! (I grabbed this photo off Pam’s Facebook post – all of mine were fuzzy. Thanks Pam 😉 )
One of my favorite people, Pam Feix!
Photo bombed by Jane!
The kitchen, always full of busy volunteers.
I am sorry I didn’t get a photo of them serving up our delicious meals – I was a little busy filling my plate 😉
Some of the other teachers – Barb McNally teaching one of her bead creations
Bonnie was also vending so she couldn’t drive her bug, but don’t you love her banner!
Zoe – isn’t that beautiful!
Zoe is always a challenging, intense class, but as Mary said, they all did amazing! That’s high praise from the person who tested the pattern for me!
Nancy needed a little help here – but she sent me an email with a picture of her finished basket!
Ready to start weaving Terry?
Two teachers in one picture! Marilyn Parr and Laura Lee Zanger
And Flo Hoppe, the queen of basket teachers!
Sorry I didn’t get all of you – I was teaching you know!
Last class of the event – Whispers
Love the three strand braid!
So much fun to see so many of my favorite people!
It was a great event – Thanks to Pam Feix and Debbie Cates, Co-Chairs, and all their helpers. Make plans to join us next year!! www.statelinefriends.com
