I just got back from two weeks in Maine at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. I took a class taught by Rachel Meginnes, Triple Knot: Stitching, Writing, and Conversation. It was incredibly interesting to work outside my usual medium. Although while working with thread and cloth, I did manage to turn paper into "cloth" through the technique of shifu, a spun paper thread. It was a wonderful class, full of interesting conversations and new ideas.
And next Friday, I am driving down to Penland School of Crafts to assist Jana Harper's class The What & the Why: Books as Idea Generators...
