I'm off to Penland

Tomorrow morning I'm leaving to go to Penland for a two week workshop. For years I have heard what a wonderful place it is to go and be immersed in art making. I'll fly into Asheville N.C and spend the night with friends, then head out for Penland, a 1 1/2 hour drive. I'm taking a workshop in a medium that is new for me. Quilting. This workshop is lead by Sherri Lynn Wood and focuses on Improvisational Quiltmaking. It's called Mapping the Rhythm of Attention. I'm sure I'll have lots to show and report when I get back on July. Until then.....

Hi Neva,

You would love it here. different than Taos, but equally special. I would like to go to Mabel's next year too. Taking a year off is good. Congratulations on your show.
