A Great First Day at DFW Fiberfest

Saturday, April 14th, 2007

What a day. I roomed with Lily Chin Thursday night and we were picked up bright and early to teach at a nearby convention center. I taught Turkish Sock Design and it was a great class. I got photos but don’t have time to post them, photos may need to wait until I return home the way this is going.

We went as a group for dinner and then a “Severe Thunderstorm” hit. Hail and big wind happened, the sirens sounded and we quickly took our food to go (from a restaurant full of windows) and went back to the Convention Center which is a tornado shelter anyway. We had a fashion show which was great fun, actually several shows/groups of work. There was a Berocco trunk show, a trunk show from a local shop, student works and instructor works. It was fun, I got to model several pieces besides my own and it really was a “ham it up” sort of enjoyable time.

We got back to the hotel and juggled roomates a little, so Friday through Sunday I’ll be rooming with Melody MacDuffee, a crochet/bead artist. We originally thought we would only be roommates on Sunday so it’s just a small adjustment.

Melody and I seem to have a lot in common. She lived in Chicago a long time so we have that in common… and we are scheming to eat Saturday or Sunday at the Indian restaurant we passed tonight on the way to the other restaurant.  I hope our plan works.

Saturday I teach Toe Up Socks. I love teaching this class. It will be a good day.

Off to sleep…
