Never has anyone had such a good time in a middle school. Friends and Fiberworks is holding it's summer retreat this weekend at Enka - Candler Middle School in Asheville. There were awesome classes, terrific vendors and goodie bags. They had me at goodie bags.
Lisa and friends did a great job organizing the retreat.
Susan and I took a class with Franklin Habit. The subject was Photographing Your Fiber. It was super informative and fun. Franklin is charming and a cutie pie.
OMG people! Miss Babs was in our class!

Melissa Yoder Ricks of Wild Hare Fiber Studio was one of the vendors and had beautiful batts. I bought a lovely blend of wool and flax in the sea glass color way. I am in love with this blend, spinning like buttah!

This is but a glimpse of the retreat offerings. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet other Fiber people and take classes from wonderful teachers. Well done Lisa and crew!
