We had a wonderful time at Dumas Bay. All students seemed to thoroughly enjoy the instructors. Dumas had a new chef and it was the best food I have ever had at any event. I cannot wait to eat there again. The weather was delightful with sun, some fog, mist and wind, but mostly sun. Good weather to take a walk around the park and to the beach.
Next year we will be hosting Donna Hrkman, Liz Alpert Fay and Nola Heidberder. It will be very hard to choose just one. These are fantastic teachers and they have not been to the west coast, except for Nol who was there this year. What a line up! I am very excited.
March 15th through 18th are the dates for the rug school. This year I will be teaching "hooked books". Tantya Graham from Canada will be teaching composition in rugs and helping students look at their rugs from an artist's perspective to improve their art. Nola Heldberger will be teaching a class on how to use "off the bolt" wool. This will be wonderful for studying values in primitive wide cut rugs.
