When I was invited to do a program and teach a workshop for the Las Arañas Weavers and Spinners Guild in Albuquerque, NM, I was thrilled! I had such a marvelous time teaching at Convergence 2010 last summer that it was an exciting honor to return. It was wonderful to see some sun and feel temperatures that were well above freezing. It made me believe that spring really must be just around the corner.
Workshops can be so much fun! Weaving and laughter seem to go hand-in-hand . . . especially when someone shows up wearing the following button . . .
The workshop was held at Village Wools . . . a wonderful and very large store with something for everyone and anyone interested in fiber. Definitely worth a stop if you’re in the area! The images below show a portion of the store.
One of the attractions at Village Wools are the walls in the restroom. When someone tells you you have to visit the restroom, it may sound odd . . . but, you really must see the walls covered with everything sheep . . . postcards, greeting cards, newspaper clippings, and more. It will easily bring a smile to one’s face even on a dark day.
I hated to see the workshop come to an end and leave Albuquerue . . . but, I’m looking forward to seeing many of the members of the Las Arañas Weavers and Spinners Guild at the Intermountain Weavers Conference in Durango, CO in July!
