Some happy shoppers

 Vivika DeNegre and Barbara Coleman Adams rode to Philly with me, where we rendezvoused with our buddy Martha Wolfe from FL for the three day conference.  Above  L-R:  Barb Adams, Exhibiting artist Lisa Call, me, two great new friends from Canada whose names I have forgotten (and I'd better remember them soon as I promised one that I would email info...any help out there?) and Ali George, the newly minted SAQA/Oceania Rep from Queensland, Australia.  We each purchased a small mounted work of Lisa's.  Everyone was very happy.

I have dozens of photos...and as I try to compose this post I keep getting distracted by the memories that are attached to each.  It was truly an wonderful weekend, full of art and, even more memorably, artists.  Generous and friendly artists.  Some of whom I had just met...and many I re-met.  What an event!

  1. Sounds like the perfect Artist Date -- what a wonderful way to immerse yourself in fiber art and talented people. Thanks for sharing the photos (I'd love to see a photo of the Lisa Call work that you purchased).
