There is no bowl....

Saturday, Tapestry Weavers South met at the Yadkin Valley Fiber Room.  This is a wonderful venue for all things fiber.

Leslie Fesperman has created something really special here, with looms, fiber, yarn and more.  We did some Kool-Aid dyeing in the backroom.

The Yadkin Valley Art Center hosted the TWS exhibit.  It was such a pleasure to see the exhibit again with many of the weavers available to talk about their work.

My Blue Bowl
I asked Barbara about this piece which was one of my favorites.  Specifically I asked about the bowl that inspired the tapestry and what it looked like.  She laughed and explained there was no bowl.

We also had show and tell.

It was a great meeting and I left inspired to get to work.
