When I teach a workshop for a guild or a conference, I’m never quite sure what I may come across during my adventures. This weekend was no different!
First, I had the pleasure of doing a workshop, Extreme Warp Makeover, for the Whidbey Weavers Guild. The weather was absolutely spectacular! The weavers, from not only Whidbey Island . . . but, also from Orcas Island and San Juan Island . . . were amazing. Great weaving! amazing questions. I hope they had at least half the fun I did.
Whidbey Island was a happening place to be this weekend . . . Just outside the building where the workshop was held was the Whidbey Island Kit Festival . . . billed as “A Festival of Colors”. What a sight it was to behold! I’ve never seen kites so large . . . or so many flying at the same time. It was one of the most joyous things I’ve ever seen.
My departure from Whidbey Island was another sight . . . over 100 Harley Davidson motorcycles taking the ferry from Keystone to Port Townsend . . . not all 100 motorcycles were on the same ferry, but it was a sight . . . and sound . . . that I’ll never forget! Lots of motorcycles . . . lots of black leather . . . and lots of rumbling when they all started up after we arrived at the Port Townsend ferry dock!
