Fans, Friends, and Fellow Needleworkers of the World,
We are plotting and scheming at The Purl District for 2009,October to be exact. We want to have a Big Ass Fiber Fest at The Oregon Garden's New Hotel and Resort. What do you think? We would invite about 30 Vendors and Workshop Instructors. We'd have Belly Dancers for entertainment and Dinners and the East Valley Wine Association, and a Runway Fashion show. We'd have a Stinkin' lot of FUN and we'd learn stuff and buy yarn and Crazy Cool Baubles etc.And we'd only hang out with the boys and girls who are fun and knit,and crochet and tat, and spin and do yarny things! For a whole entire weekend,Thursday-set-up,Friday-SundayMarket,Classes Thursday-Sunday.The area is gorgeous and you can go to the Abbey or Silver Falls Park,or the creeks or, I don't know ,crazy, if you want to. There are lots of shopping ops in Silverton and dining Galor also a fiber mill to visit in action.. I'll keep you all updated as we confirm instuctors and dates. So far we have Jane Robbins, Paula Schull, and Lisa Jorgenson.........
