This years retreat was held in Exeter, and what an excellent time we had. We began on the Sunday afternoon with Jane Dean encouraging us out of our comfort zone to create a yarn to decorate our journals, from a lovely array of fibres. This years theme was a window from Exeter Cathedral, one picture looking at the window from the outside, the other looking at the same window from the inside, two very different pictures of the same thing. It worked out well and was again surprised at the variations of yarns created. The Cathedral was just behind the hotel and we could hear the bells all morning while setting up the room.
The three days were totally full on. Janet Day and Dj Stefek, Jane Dean, Elisabeth Kendrick, Sarah Howard and Majacraft - Glynis & Owen Poad were all fantastic teachers and lovely people, it was a pleasure having them part of this years team. We all learnt such a lot, together with a lot of laughter, fun, food and woolly loveliness. The photos on the link below show just a little of what went on.
Thank you to all those who attended, what a joy to meet you all, the teachers get as much inspiration from the students as the students do from the teachers.
Perhaps …maybe … see you again next year !!
