Happy New Year, friends! I have a good feeling about 2018. I was so ready to shake off 2017, and now I’m ready for a year of creating, tea drinking, friends and adventures. My first adventure will combine all of these things! I will once again be attending the Eureka! Fiber in the Ozarks Retreat in Eureka Springs, AR. This time, though, I will also be teaching a class as well as attending as a student, and would love to see you there!
The retreat itself is February 1,2,3 at the Inn of the Ozarks in Eureka Springs. It will be three whole days full of fiber fun– including spinning, knitting, crocheting, rug hooking and weaving. There will also be classes you can take (you get one free with your retreat fee) ranging from shibori to rug hooking to— oh look! painted fiber dolls taught by me! 😀
On Saturday Feb 3 I’ll be teaching a small class on painting these pretty little angels and doing the needle felting for their lovely locks. On Saturday the event is also open to the public for sales from various fiber vendors from around the region— you do NOT have to be a retreat member to attend the Saturday sale, but retreat goers get first dibs on all the fabulous items there!
I had SUCH an amazing time last year, and came back so refreshed. It was the first time I’d ever indulged myself in doing something like that and ooooohhh was it worth it. I came back a happy, refreshed and inspired mama.
The retreat is hosted by Eureka fiber artists Debbie Davis of Fleece ‘N Flax and Vicki Hardcastle of Hardcastle Folk Art. Both these talented artists live in work in Eureka, and visiting their shops is half the fun of this amazing retreat.
I’d love to see you there! You can find out more information and sign up HERE.
Til then, happy New Year!~
